    Sansamp PSA 1 setup

    Just thought i'd ask anybody with some experience with the psa 1 (not 1.1, not the plugin) how they had it set up when they used their. I have one coming on the way, i bought it to get some of that Hypocrisy & 90's Rammstein kinda vibe (i like the bright, fuzzy, grindy texture of it). Did you...

    Swedeath : Grave

    Grave is one of the original Swedish death metal bands who've adamantly claimed they had NOT used a hm-2 pedal, ever, on any records. So... exactly how did they get it to sound like they did? That's always baffled me, because i have a hm-2 & a couple of variants and that's pretty authentic for...

    Bassman vs Bassbreaker

    Anyone been able to compare these two, on the clean channel primarily? How much of the Bassman circuit/DNA is in the Bassbreaker? I tend to use pedals into clean channels for my gain sounds, so i've been thinking about getting a Bassman or clone (or a JTM clone) for a while now. But if i...

    Chorus pedal on Obsolete

    Anybody know which chorus Dino was using for Obsolete? Been getting some conflicting information, was it a Boss CS-1? Ibanez? I've pretty much been able to nail this tone all except for the chorus bit :P

    SM57 & proximity effect

    How far back do you like to have a SM57? I just put mine about 4.5 inches away from the grill, on-axis directly infront of where the cone meets the dust cap as this seems to give the clearest/crispest signal to me with a V30. It also had the side effect of making the top end sizzle a little as...

    Gain pedals with unique texture

    I've mentioned this here and there in other posts but thought it a topic worthy of its own thread. Basically i got the straight high-gain thing down with my setup; running preamp pedals (tube & jfet) into the front-end of a clean amp (a mjolnir in this case, but set so neutral it could probably...

    Green Russian vs IC Muffs

    So i'm always looking for interesting high gain textures & don't have any fuzzes, i'm wondering what preference anyone has between one of these versions of the muff over another? The originals are $200+ these days so i'd be going more for a high quality/accurate clone but still, the basic sound...

    The MB flux drive

    Anybody ever played the mesa boogie flux drive pedals? This one's been on my radar as of late, i'm always on the lookout for pedals with interesting gain textures to add to my setup (one of my more unique ones is the hm2 into a bandit). Currently i have the marshall and rectifier thing...

    Audio interfaces; MIYO vs Audent iD4?

    Looking at new portable interfaces these two caught my attention; the H2 Designs MIYO and the Audient iD4 Both make fairly similar claims, that they have parred down pieces of high end audio components inside a more portable & entry-level interface (the Miyo having studio level...

    In praise of pedal stacking

    Guitar pedals sure seem to have come a long way huh? From amp preamp sections recreated with mosfets to dirt-cheap clones of more boutique fare, things really seem to have picked up in.. well less than a decade i spose. Before i used to be one of these 'anti pedals' people, avoiding the...

    Singular cab mics

    So i'm getting a mic for home recording, i get a great sound at home with my Hellatone 60 (i.e. Vintage 30) in 1x12 cab & i'm looking for a singular mic for recording purposes. My first impulse was just to buy a Sm57 but i read the 'new' ones are a little different from older ones? Either...

    Tube pre in the fx loop

    (I don't know whether this should be here or faq/beginner section, but just wanted to share some experiences) So i spent all day today downsizing my rig a bit, seeing what pedals i didn't really want etc. and moving the pod hd out of my fx loop. I since came to the conclusion that i much...

    Low watt JCM800?

    Misleading title there as it was presented as a question (i vaguely remember asking something similar a long while ago) but this time i have an actual answer! A couple in fact. 1) just today i found out about Nik from Ceriatone doing a 6v6 20 watt JCM800 lunchboxer (the "2202"), you can check...

    NGD Jimi strat content..

    This just came in the mail today; A MIM Fender left-handed strat strung righty, posed lovingly with the newly collected pedalboard. Got it for a bit of a steal; $275 free shipping (whereas i think you probably pay us much for a CV Squier, which was my other choice). Only changes made when...

    Grave - Into The Grave..

    Anyone know what guitar gear was used on this album? http://youtu.be/-fQHSprFIYI All their Sunlight Studios contemporaries were mostly using the Boss HM-2 -> Peavy Bandit/Studio/Supreme ss amps (the PROPER way to do early Swedish DM :hbang:), but Grave have always maintained they've never used...

    Where do you buy your power tubes? (USA)

    When i lived in the UK i had my reputable sources for powertubes & an amp tech etc. never having any problem with any tubes i bought from those sources. Now that i'm living in California & made the move to full tube amps again (& no longer living out of a suitcase, yay!) i'm wondering where's...

    Micro dark headphone question

    I really dig some of the sound demos i've heard of the micro dark, i'd love to use the fx loop send to goose into the front-end of my current main amp (or possibly just into another tube power section). I know it has a headphone jack, if you plug something into this does it act as a load and...

    What the Mjolnir..?

    Anyone know what joyo's Mjolnir is based on? Picked one up for $300 (oh yeah 'new amp day') but haven't had the chance to test it out yet, still waiting on a 1x12 cab in the mail (matching it with a Hellatone 60, woo!) Considering it was new in box and about the price of a mildly overpriced...

    Budget Boogies!

    So i'm looking at all the different types of mesa/boogie amps you can get at the sub $750 price, & i'm wondering what experience/opinions people have with the 'entry level' mesas, here's the list thus far; Single Rectifier/Rectoverb F-series (F-50/F-30) .50 Caliber+ Dual Calibers (DC-3/DC-5)...

    Really I just want a low-watt JCM800..

    Seems every time i obsess about gear i always end up back at the same place; a lower wattage/power-scaled Jmp Superlead or JCM800. I'd grab a Marshall Studio 15 in a heartbeat, its even got the powertubes i like (6v6's), but i ain't got a spare grand for that right now. Workin on it. The other...
