    Trying to get that Deftones tone AGAIN!

    Hey all, I wanted to do another attempt at getting that classic Around The Fur / White Pony era guitar tone. I tried it before but I wanted to see if I could come even closer this time around. I used my trusty ESP LTD SC-20 with the SD JB pickup and my Marshall JMP-1 into the JVM410H poweramp...

    What constitutes a great metal recording tone?

    I recently started exploring the Lasse Lammert presets for Axe FX and noticed his tones are incredibly dry and thick. Generally I have been dialing in and playing with tones that felt way more wet and spongy in comparison, with way more air and sustain. I am having trouble playing convincingly...

    Guitar tone suddenly muddy for no apparent reason

    So, unless I'm going crazy and this is all just in my head, my guitar tone suddenly just got a lot muddier. I mostly use amp plugins on my pc for tones, and I had created a preset with my Neural DSP Omega Ampworks Granophyre that I was really happy with. Very heavy distortion, but very defined...

    Attempting the Metallica rhythm tone...

    Hey all, This was fun! So I made an attempt at recreating the Metallica James Hetfield rhythm crunch tone. Not a tone based on a specific album but perhaps a nice blend of the old and new stuff. I wanted the rig to be simple, so no amp blending etc. and I think I came pretty close! I used my...

    How to Sound Like Deftones

    I have a new video up on how to recreate a Deftones-style guitar tone. I was going for the Around the Fur, White Pony, Self-Titled Deftones era. And I used STL Tones Amphub because it now has an emulation of the Marshall JMP-1 in there, which is the preamp that Steph used during this time. Check...

    High-Gain Guitar Tone Crafting with Kristian Kohle - anyone has it? Need a feedback

    I recently had a look at demo of Kohle course about layering a guitar tone and am really impressed, especially when he showed how to fix the phase when mixing different mics and distances, and get a better tone. Just wonder if there are another cool tricks like this there, or maybe there isn`t...

    Axe Fx III - Good Overdriven + Clean Combinations?

    Hey all! Just got my Axe Fx III a few days ago and long story short, my incredibly high expectations were somehow exceeded by 10x. This thing is a monster.

    Sustainiac Sustainer Pickup Mode?

    I haven't found much info out there other than, "it's okay," on how the Sustainiac performs as a neck pickup. Can someone who has one tell me how it is? Is it better than a Dimarzio PAF or Duncan '59? Can it take some gain for lead work? Is it flubby and dull or creamy, chimey, and fluid...

    Crushing bass tone with guitar amp sim?

    I've recently gotten hold of the Neural DSP Darkglass plugin, and suffice to say I'm pretty damn happy with the result; my Fender GL Jazz bass sounds epic through it. My only issue is that it seems pretty difficult to get much "Grind-y" top end out of it. I've heard people saying on numerous...

It`s a tremolo minor bar chords in a moderate tempo plus some slow arpegios on first 3 strings, arpegios are fine cause only 1 string at a time is active but bar...
