anybody know where i can find some?
go here, download "12ax7 comparison", that's me popping a bunch of different 12ax7's into V1 of my 50w Emplexador, on "vintage" and "Modern" settings... gives you a pretty solid example of that amp's tone...
Saw Switchfoot in concert this week and though it's a small 850 person club I was in the back and not in the gear-chasing mode I 'm normally in . RARE OCCASION.. ANyway, they used Tophats this time with their ORange.. Last time it was Vox
sweet nectar man!!!! that emplaxdor is absolutely incredible!!! how are the clean tones on that baby?
I can try an E-mail you a tune on our album that was done entirely with my Club Royale 1X12 and a ported 1X12.
One track is a strat the other is a mahoganey P-90 gitter.
Clean tones... set on the jtm45-ish front end setting, ("Fat").. and with the master all the way up, you can bring up the preamp gain slowly to taste and it basically reaacts like you would expect a 50w Marshall to... some good clean tones to be had for sure, and it reacts nicely to volume changes on your guitar.
Dude, your song clips are great, man....wow....loved them. Are they your songs? You singing? I'm not sure what your gear was, but who cares....the recordings are really kick ass and punchy.....in your face. Loved them.
For those curious, check out the Media page at http://peterthorn.com/ for some nice recordings.
Thanks, dude... not me singing, the singer is Murray Yates.. those songs are my old band Forty Foot Echo. The album is available on Itunes, and the CD is still in most stores... we had a deal on Hollywood Records a couple years ago.... didn't pan out past one album, but I think we made a really good kickass rock CD...
thanks for noticing!
Oh- the gear on he album- Les Paul Classic and an SG, and the amps were a Dual Recto, my Emplexador, a VHT 50 watt head, and my 66 Bassman for cleaner stuff (like the intro on "Born Yesterday")... Royer 121 and SM57 mics blended about 50/50 were a big component of the guitar sound, as was the Tom Lord-Alge mix
the tight chord stabs in the verse of "Tomorrow" are the Emplex and the VHT together, with a wah cocked halfway on on one of the amps (can't remember which one), that's probably my favorite sound on the album...
Wow. Those clips are awesome! it really does a great job showing the difference in the tubes. I have been a big propenent of the GT12ax7ms. After listening to this...it shows just how good the real mullards are. But I thought that the GT's were the best of the non mullard bunch. (although the Bugle boys were really good too. )
Very cool,...the Emplexador sounds awesome. I liked the RFT the best, then the real Mullard and a tie for third between the JJ and the Bugle Boy. Thought the Mullard RI sounded kinda dull. What kinda of cab and speakers do you run the Emplaxador into?
there used to be some great clips at www.amazingtone.com but it looks like he's no longer a dealer for TopHat??
Does anyone hava a clue what Peter used on that "suhr2" clip. The crunchy tones are just perfect in my book.
