    What Amp to Nail This Tone?

    It's tight, percussive, and records amazing. :hbang: What did he use on this album? What can nail this? I'm not even sure it's a tube amplifier.

    Am I in the Wrong?

    I have a question for my fellow sso'ers. If a teenager kills three others while driving under the influence, am I in the wrong for not having sympathy for the parents of the teenager? It seems as though you should forgive everyone in the situation but apparently I have been told or argued...

    Eventide H9 vs Strymon BigSky?

    I need help choosing a reverb. Does anyone who owns or has owned a Bigsky comment on what sounds like an abundance of compression that exists? Does the Bigsky allow you to adjust the dynamics? The H9 seems to sound more like a natural reverb, but doesn't sound as transparent about the original...

    Studio Gear for Guitar Rig?

    I've come to terms with the fact that guitar reverbs do not cut it. I tend to prefer more realistic reverbs, and to obtain that functionality I'm finding that it's more studio based gear/plugins that I crave for my guitar rig. Here lies the problem. Studio gear is marketed towards studio...

    So I played a DSL100H today...

    And it was putting out the gain! Holy crap. The cleans were excellent and the gain channel had a ton of meat/grind. The built in reverb wasn't obscene to the point of overkill, and the gain channel lead 2 even cleans up with the roll-back of the guitar volume. It's also killer loud. I was...

    X3 Pro vs PodHD500X?

    If you were a college student needing something to practice, which you would you pick and why? I am more partial to a vetta II HD which has the X3 preamp simply because I can also use it for practicing with friends and Romeo has managed some great tones live back in symphony x. I do not want...

    Engl Blackmore Question?

    Has anyone ran EL34's or E34L's in their blackmore? Does it help emphasize the mids in the amplifier for the better or does it just sound terrible? Having a hard time on finding videos or recordings of this amplifier with something other than 6L6's. Can previous owners elaborate please?

    Clean Channels?

    As musicians we speak lightly of a great clean channel, or really pure cleans. But for many it is hard to find or impossible to know what to look for when factoring in budgets along with solid state or tubes. What is the best clean sound you have ever heard? What gear was involved? I'll go...

    Due to release on PS4 in early 2014, it is already available for PC on steam. I have been going through this game and dear jesus this game is scary. I am a huge fan of old resident evil style horror/puzzle games and this game pushes that scare limit to the next level. Ghosts, creepy floors...

    NSFW because cursing. Hard to deny the statistics - i believe his reasoning is a bit off though. I cannot fully explain why but i felt as though i should share this here. Do i agree? I believe so. I find it hard the current up and rising generation is some of the most well educated as ever...
