    Not sure I agree with you, but Oz Noy is a badass.

    So if tone is in the hands, what finger should I used for a boost at 1.6hz? Or maybe if I want more bass frequencies I should use less pinky. :)

    Tone is how the range of 80hz through 5khz is percieved by the human ear. Some frequencies are louder than others.

    I can see why your friend sent it to you the drums sound great.

    Yes but hands are known to finesse these things, its like someone very good thats used to their rig and uses different attack to maximise said rig...

    So as an extreme example I could have a 50k Dumble and still be mediocre, whereas an excellent player could sound excellent thru a 250$ Champ,

    Note choice, and knowing how to work your rig and phrasing is everything IMHO....

    Anyway whatever works for you is the right answer.

    Awesome clip. Proves nothing about the OP, which is intractable and inevitably leaves many people pissed off at each other. Have fun!

    He's a killer player, no doubt.
    But it's both gear and hands.
    I've heard GREAT players make anything sound good and crap players sound horrible through the best rigs.
    Touch is EVERYTHING and it can't be taught, only obtained through hard work and practice.

    I'm certainly way less than 1/100th the talent but that did absolutely nothing for me. Wasn't impressed with either the tone or the hands. Just because you can play something doesn't mean you should.

    Obviously, everybody's gonna' hear it differently, but try to mentally separate the badass playing from the rather mediocre timbre of the main lead tone. Sure, he's milking that L6 for everything it's got, but even those gifted paws can't turn water into wine. Saw the same kind of thing with Mike Stern once, but much worse. His playing was from the gods, but his tone on the rented gear he had was so bad, it just about ruined the performance.

    Awesome thanks for posting that...I had a rough night and that cheered me up.

    He has such a cool style. He has almost no vibrato when soloing, but it sounds cool. He's like a mesh of Beck, Fripp, Landau...just a very hip player.

    He recently released a new CD and it gets much play at my house, it's very good, check it out if you haven't.

    Tone is in the gear, skill though is in the mixture of aptitude and passion!
    Oh and Dave is a sick drummer for life!!!

    Right but what you just described isnt tone, its style. Tone comes from a EQ

    Wow.....

    I wonder who you think plays good notes.

    Disagree 1000% with this comment, other than the tone.

    Oz is incredible and I love what he plays.
