My Jackson's tuned to B-standard, and my RG2077XL is tuned to A.
I think Im gonna use both.. Because like you can go BEADGBE, or ADGCFAD.. Probably will end up having two guitars with one on each tuning.. but I wouldnt do AEADGBE =[
I like Bb standard.
One of these days I wanna try out Ab standard.
I LOVE AEADGBE.
Great for jazz and classical. And metal, too. Makes chording those low voiced 9ths and 11ths easier.
B standard FTW!
Return of old threads FTW too!
I know a guy that used a pitch detune function, instead of tuning down physically. It sounded great. He had a really weird setup with two of the old Carvin half stacks and an old ART or something. But it sounded great. I love funky setups that rock.
I tune to Bb. No effects, but I admit I miss my whammy pedal.
I wouldn't even attempt a fast passage like that, but it's cool if you just want an occasional low A in single note passages. I've found the tracking's not too bad if you go easy on the distortion.
See, this is what was strange about the dude's rig that I described - no tracking problems. Everything was fine. As you mentioned, DR, he was light on preamp distortion. More about the volume thing. Very loud, very cool sounding.
Was he using a Boss VG88 or something like that, as I know the tracking on those is meant to be pretty good?
