That AC10 really does have the same tone as "Doug & Pat's" Vox. Would love to have that. So unique.
I had Doug's tech recently rebuild it, so that has a lot to do with how it sounds. He did a couple tweaks to mine so that it has more headroom than Doug's. He told me Doug's works like a switch, it goes from off to rock. Doug uses an old Vox 2x12 cab with 65 Blues. I am using the original Vox 2x10 cab but with new Celestion Golds. The amp would fry the original Vox speakers, so I put those away for safe keeping.
That amp is such a pisser to play! You just turn up the volume, adjust the tone knob and then everything else comes from your guitar and your hands. You have to hear it with a Strat. It is frickin' glorious! Maybe I can post some Strat clips by the weekend.
Awesome. I'd love to hear more of it.
Damn 4 pages to catch up on..edit- great thread, cool listening to some of yuz.
It is well worth catching up on
Here's my contribution. Panama Inferno 100 and AxeFX II.
Right, let's get some lo fi action goin'. This is a recording from 2010, done with a little ZoomH2 recorder, just taking in the ambient sound of the room. It was done to demo a bottle neck or slide I'd just finished making from a cow's leg bone. Yes, a bone slide.
As such it's all slide parts, bits and pieces of improvised, swampy noodling. No rhyme, reason or intent. The instrument was:
* 1978 Les Paul Standard, loaded with Skatterbrane pickups, into
* a 1968 WEM Copicat tape delay, into
* a highly modified 2008 Fender '59 LTD Bassman.
Mods to the Bassman included: Weber 10A125 speakers, 'corrected' tone circuit, cathode bias. Think of it as a 4x10 tweed Deluxe and you're sort of there. It was pretty loud in the room, as you can hear.
Hot damn,this idea really took off cherrysunburst00 !!! Very anxious to jump into the fray! Some stellar playing(and tones) going on in here....
Has a nice "raunch" to it! what are you tuned to? Sounds great, makes me wish I would have learned how to play slide guitar.
I guess that's the difference between us, I tend to gravitate towards amps that have a certain tone. More along the Boogie or Marshall variety. Fenders and Vox have never done anything for me so I stay away from them. So when I say I tend to dial in my tone anyway, it's really more of a thing that dependent on the song I am recording I will dial in a tone that fits it, rather than sticking to the, this amp should be dialed in this way route.
Plus, judging from the clips I have been hearing, I seem to play much more high gain stuff than most here. So come the weekend I will add my ruckus to the mix lol. I won't be offended if people tell me to go away with my high gain stuff.
Love it mark..
I own two amps. One tube (monoprice) and one modeler (Mustang III). Guess which one this is...
Listen to Claptana by DotStudio #np on #SoundCloud
Negative my friend, that is FREE..
Nice playing and sounds in those clips! Those Ceriatone amps are tempting.
Wow, thanks Frank! Fun thread
Tunings were open G and open D, from memory. Both were probably a semi tone slack, too (ie, open F# and open C#).
Yep. Finally we got guys actually playing instead of talk talk talk.
All amp cravings and debates would be concluded if everybody just decided to just get the DSL...
Nice to see you're a BuGG brother! I freaking luv this pedal. It's the first thing I mess around with after firing up the rig. Very cool that you chose to use it to cover No Quarter. Sounds great!
