Hi,

Here is a real short, quickly recorded before work, clip of the Tonespotter. It is loaded in my Bob Burt V Twin 2X12 pine cab. Amp is my proto Fuchs SLX100 . Baker RF on bridge.

Disclaimer: I was sick of Norm's Footprints backing so I popped in Ford's Help the Poor for giggles. ;)

How is the tone? I really like the low end texture I have dialed in.

Thanks for listening.

Very cool! I really like the way the lower notes sing/honk more than the higher ones. Higher register seems to be lacking just a bit of sparkle. but that might be my crappy computer speakers. Very sweet tone for a bridge humbucjer!

I agree with hemlock - its nice, but its definitely missing some top. I enjoyed the playing though, so who cares about tone ;)

Thanks dudes!

The high end EQ was intentional. I miced the cone near the edge and had no presence on. I suppose I could have brightened it a tad.... My overall concern was the low end squish thing. The hazy fine sandpaper grit happening on the bottom.

Thanks for listening!

Scott,

I find it hard to concentrate on your tone when I'm listening so intently on your fine playing.

I second iluvstrats's motion. I am seriously impressed with your playing. Listened to your clips from your earlier Tonespotter post and then checked out your site, and then Fuchs's...I thought I wanted to get a Red Fang for my Mesa F-30...now I don't know whether I should just sell everything I own and buy a Fuchs or just take up a new hobby :D . Seriously, this website has been a real ear opener...are there more players like you and Tomo posting here?

This is a pretty humbling place. Check out the clips from Ed D, Richard B, and Normster to start. I'm waiting for when people need a good laugh to post my clips.:D

Hmmm...sick of the backing already? Try the "Maiden Voyage" backing instead. LOL

I'm glad I'm not the only one who finds it hard to focus on your tone. Awesome playing, Scott! :dude

Your tone is so refined, I typically have to compare one take to another and listen closely before I can comment. This one has the blanket back on , but only compared to "clip 4" from your other thread. ;)

Hey Scott,

Love your playing!

Great phrasing. Makes me work harder!

It's interesting.... it's sound like a bit like
the Wizard 's bottom.

I set my Fuchs 50
Gain 4-5
Treble 7
Middle5
Bass 4
Presence 3-4

Someone metioned about top end.
The Tonespotter can cut through great
and has great clear top end.

I think Scott likes EQed a bit rounder side.
Great tone, Scott!

I have to work on that changes.
Your playing is great inspiration!!!!!

PS, Recently I made more clips with the Wizard.
New Wizard clips Strat 335

I am gonna make more clips with the Tonespotter next.

Hemlock,

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. So many posts, so little time. ;)

Whoops! I forgot to say thanks!! I appreciate the comments! Sorry to not pop in sooner.

There are a whole bunch of smoking dudes here. Other bluesy/fusiony guys not mentioned include, iluvstrats (listen to his post!), vladorg, myron stratis, gregv (must hear!), fig, mondoslug (andy most), and tag! I know I am missing a bunch...

Thanks again for the nice comments guys!

Here is a take I did with the Wizard. I am teeling you that there must be a dead tube in Brick mic pre. When I use it, my topend has no zing and the overall tone is muted. In any event, there was a lick I liked in here so here goes!
