    Eric, you play wonderfully and post awesome clips...but that was not one of them. I realize it's a Les Paul but the SRs I've played have more headroom than that. Very fuzzy and broken up sounding.

    Maybe my speakers are busted...

    Hmmm.... I never thought the SR's speakers sounded "busted" .... I admit - this amp does not have a lot of headroom - usually gets a nice breakup around 4-5 on the volume. But on this video - the volume was just under "2" .... I am doing these videos with an old Sony Cybershot 3.2 Mp digicam... And the condenser mic SUCKS! That I do know. I didn't think it sounded "fuzzy" - slight break up - yes - but I think fuzzy is a bit of a stretch. All in all - I appreciate the comments... And trust me - you are not offending me in any way. I'm my own worst critic!

    I meant my computer speakers, not the ones on the amp. Maybe it's the mic on your camera though...

    I have heard other clips by you, including ones with a Les Paul so I don't know what's up here. Based on your other clips, I'd say we're into a lot of the same stuff (just traded for a gold Deja Vibe based on some older clips I've heard of your pedal) but the tones in this one just didn't hit me for some reason.

    Nothing sounds buster to me... :confused:
    I dig the clip. Nice warm clean sound, IMO.
    I dunno, maybe I just like the sound of busted speakers? lol

    Same here, no distortion. Sounded very nice.

    I listened again with good headphones instead of the speakers. I still think the condensor mic didn't do the tone justice, but it definitely sounded better and cleaner.

    That's good to know that it just might be the poopy condenser mic. :D
