    Using my Wolfgang, made a hybrid for the bridge pickup, a DiMarzio super D and the slug coil from a Duncan 59B, used an A5 magnet, the neck is my trusted APH-2 humbucker.
    Amp is my Marshall DRP-1 slightly modded, compressor, two faze phaser, plexitone, modified Delayla xl with a loop in the feedback, stuck an eq in there for a slightly darker and fatter feedback, as the unit is modded with more volume and clarity.

    Hi Niels,

    You really have nailed a fat and sumptous sound that doesn't sound fake at all in spite of recording direct.

    I do like this more lyrical side of your playing.
    I will listen to this one may times.

    Cheers,

    Mats N

    PS. Any chance of getting my hands on the BT?

    Hi Niels,

    Yes, thank you. I got the modding message.
    I almost bought a DRP-1 last thursday but another guy managed to get ahead of me. So I will keep looking and hoping.

    Cheers,

    Mats N

    Nice job, I recorded a version of this some time ago. Randy is a cool guy, and a good player. He posted this clip over on the Carvin.com bbs and a bunch of guys each recorded their own take on it.

    Here's a link to my version: http://www.soundclick.com/bands/songInfo.cfm?bandID=405914&songID=2868025

    I had just completed some mods done to a Carvin Valvemaster amp. I just used my workhorse Ibanez AR250 that I keep out in the shop next to the bench. The amp was plugged into a 1 x 12 cab w/ an Eminence Tonker. I was quite pleased with it. In fact I liked the amp so much I bought one for myself when I came across a used one for sale. I'm just now finishing up the mods to that one.
