    He is more concerned about making the snare drum sound right.

    Rabaea Massad(or however you spell his name) usually has great tone and his chops are killer though

    Edit: he had reviewed the amp as well

    It's just a shame that us guys that don't make demo vids have the best tones and know how to review amps properly. Strange.

    I've never met a snark that was always a couple cents flat

    In all seriousness, I hear better mixes posted here all the time

    And for someone who claims to be a professional sound engineer, Glenn should do better

    And Tone King really is just a joke. The guy can barely play.

    Where is the dude Deadpool? He's like the first guy on the planet to get one of these invectives and I am not sure if he ever posted a demo?

    Glenn always bangs on about someone's guitars being nasally, etc., and he puts out horrid shit like that. It blows my mind because you'd think he wouldn't talk shit given how awful his own tones are.

    I think the problem with his tone is that he recommends cranking the post gain to 100%. I just got an Invective, and have noticed when you crank the post gain, shit gets really nasally. An EQ in the loop can help fix it, but without one you are left cranking the presence to compensate. I prefer right around 3 on the post gain.

    Actually I've been a bit surprised by the tone controls on the Invective. On the gain channels, the treble control is more of an upper mids control. So with the post gain cranked, even cranking the treble leaves much to be desired, hence the need for an EQ in the loop. Dial this in right and the amp sounds killer! YMMV

    I think you also need to crank the volume on the back of the amp to open it up like a 5150. So that it operates like the OG ones with just the pre and post gain knobs. Master full and lead boost full is the real 5150 setting.

    Are there any invective mh clips out there? There's a video or two from the usual offenders but otherwise not much, are there just not many in the wild yet?

    I knew I've seen an Invective during the Vio-lence show in Oakland. I was just too far back and hazed to make sure.

    Phil is using it solo.

    That's because he's shit.
    I got banned from a sound engineering group on facebook for criticising his modus operandi. He and his fanboys are trash.
