I scrolled down thinking there was a second video, until I realized it was an ss.org ad...
Anyway, that was a great demo. Wish his H-208 demo were as good.
Interesting, seems he installed a string tree.
I also posted this link and the one to the 208 review in the ESP neck thread
Great video and playing! I really dig the sound you are getting from it going through that Engl. This is exactly the type of sound I'm trying to get out of my H308.
I'm using a Pod HD 500 and finally starting to dial in a tone I like on it. I use mostly the "Treadplate" amp which is a Mesa Boogie sim, but I believe the Angel amp is modeled after an Engl so I'll have to play around with that one some more to see if I can get a tone closer to what you are getting.
One question for you Sam - what is the black band you have going over the neck just behind the nut? Is that something you use to mute the strings? I've seen this done before but could never figure out what it's used for.
I think this is the first 8 string demo I've seen by a company/music store that's not just classic rock/nu metal riffs an octave lower. I like it great playing, too.
Hey man! Sorry for the late reply, its used to cancel out any ringing behind the nut, as the strings go so low in pitch the body shakes more, you get a little ringing out when you're doing stop start stuff, which especially shows up when recording, and can be annoying. It doesn't mute the strings at all, it doesn't effect any open strings ringing out.
I think there is a better, more scientific explanation for why the ringing happens, but there are a lot of guitarists who do it!
Hope this helps dude
God watching this makes me want 1 so bad! Might have to get this instead of another 6 string
