    Damn, lol.

    I know EMG's get a bit of a bad rap, but I definitely prefer Loomis' tone to Broderick's here. I'm not sure how much of that is due to the relative placement of the camera's mic relative to each of their cabs, but Loomis has a bit more upper mids in there and it seems to cut much better.

    Oh, and those two can absolutely BURN. :flame:

    It was the camera being off-axis - Steph was sitting right in front of Jeff's amp. Chris' tone was actually better than Jeff's, IMO - he cut, but was nice and fat, too.

    Hmm. Clearly I need to shut up, buy a Hellraiser, and do some comparison of my own. :D

    (I will say that, after giving Chris's Hellraiser a run through my Nomad, mahogany still isn't really my thing, but the maple-topped C7 with an extended scale, fixed bridge, and EMG's do the "mahogany" sound much better than anything else I've played to this point in my playing career, and while it's tough to say through all that gain, I like many of the same things about Loomis' tone that I did about the Hellraiser - good mid-to-upper mids coupled with enough brightness to preserve clarity)

    Anyway, thanks tremendously for getting that on film and linking it up here. :D

    Noodles, eaeolian and I were all at that show last night. I think you'd have to say that Chris Broderick is doing a pretty good job in Nevermore... :bowdown:

    Jeff's Schecter definitely 'cut through' a little better than Chris's RG1527, though.

    I just finished tabbing it a few minutes ago.


    Looks like Chris goes sans lock nuts, with locking tuners, on his floyd. IIRC, he only used it for vibrato last night anyway.

    Oh, Chris is in Nevermore now? I figured he was there with Evergrey. What happened to Steve Smyth?

    Uh huh. What did you do, email Chris for it? :lol:

    Yeah, he doesn't really use it for extreme stuff, and his others are 7321s.

    That was truly incredible.

    Jeff = speed king. Nice phrasing.

    Chris - fucking sweep master, gawdamn.

    Those guys are the shit, and compliment each other very well in this vid. I'm fuckin' jealous. I would have loved to have been there.

    Great post, Mike. :yesway:
