    Small/lesser known brands for high gain amps

    They're very much a rectifier tonally. The original guitar player in Dagoba used one, and their album What Hell is About is the best example of them I can think of.

    What bands did you see live recently / are waiting to see?

    Last concert I went to was CHVRCHES last November and they were great. I wanted to see Tears For Fears but I would've had to go to Chicago and I hate driving in Chicago.

    What game are you playing?

    I've been on a huge Atlus kick basically since SMT V came out. Played SMT V, P5R, P4G, SMT IV, and 13 Sentinels since then. I'm looking forward to Soul Hackers 2, but I don't know that I'll get it at launch with how Atlus pricing seems to go. Plus it's not like I don't have any other games to...

    What is your next guitar/gear purchase gonna be?

    I tried flipping a D Sonic years ago and I thought it was a little brighter with the rail towards the bridge, but it's not like I was matching pickup heights or anything, and this was 15 years ago so it's probably a wash and nothing that you couldn't eq differently to get what you want anyway.

    What is your next guitar/gear purchase gonna be?

    I got my opsix yesterday and it's pretty cool. Still probably use my OB6 and Nord for 99% of my keyboard sounds.

    What game are you playing?

    I rolled credits on Xenoblade Chronicles 3 yesterday. Game of the year. I booted into post game and suffice it to say I'll still be playing it for another few months probably. FF6 and Chrono Cross were my favorite games for 15-20 years. Then Xenoblade 2 completely obliterated them. I can't...

    Official Axe-Fx Q&A thread!

    Yeah, i hardly ever even make new presets anymore though. I'll mess with something for 20 minutes then go back to my trusty super od>shiva>cab797> stereo tape preset and play.

    What is your next guitar/gear purchase gonna be?

    Got my PS-2 yesterday and getting no sound from it despite it powering on, heaters online, and fan spin. Sounds like it's the internal fuse, so I have to wait until tomorrow to get some in and hope that's the issue, otherwise it's going back.

    What is your next guitar/gear purchase gonna be?

    I'm getting a PS-2 today, and I also bought a Korg OpSix last night cause either they're blowing them out for a new model (probably the case) or they sold so terribly that Korg just wants them gone to free space.

    What do you dislike about your favorite guitar you own?

    PRS seems to have tinkered with their finishing process every few years, and whatever they were doing when mine was made has started ghosting/fogging in certain areas. It's not super noticeable yet, and overall I don't care as much about looks as I do about sound/playability but I'm hoping my...

    Your First Live Concert-

    Dang, that's like 100 Green Day songs.

    Your First Live Concert-

    This was the Minneapolis show. It was a couple days after Chino did an interview and apparently dragged the other bands on the tour, including Metallica, and I remember James making some sort of joke at his expense when mentioning why they didn't play.

    Your First Live Concert-

    Metallica on Summer Sanitarium with Mudvayne, Limp Bizkit, and Linkin Park. Deftones was on the tour but the story was that Chino had to go to the emergency room and was unable to perform that particular night.

    Bands that never lived up the hype or their potential

    Sonata Arctica never should've fired Jani. Also they probably shouldn't have written songs about a "shit load of money"

    Bands that never lived up the hype or their potential

    S/t is largely a darker and moodier record them the ones before and I really like Ilan Rubins drumming on it. No shit, the chorus to Now and Luke Holland's cover ain't it fun made me buy a drum set and start playing drums. I also somehow naturally gravitate towards albums that Ken Andrews mixed...

    Bands that never lived up the hype or their potential

    No, you're reading it backwards. Debut is my least favorite, S/t is my favorite.

    Bands that never lived up the hype or their potential

    I didn't know how successful After Laughter was, but I liked it too. Still probably S/t> BNE> Riot> AL> AWKIF for me though.

    Bands that never lived up the hype or their potential

    I think it could feasibly be argued that any and every band hasn't lived up to their hype or potential. The Beatles were more popular than Jesus, then they got Yoko'd. What if, you know?
