    Went over to Bill Landry's yesterday, and recorded these on the fly. I just turned onthe Zoom Q3, gave him my R9 with the Javalinas in it, and let him do that magic he does. (Note that during some of the fastest passages, his eyes are closed...wow.)

    I'm uploading clips to youtube, and will post when they process.

    These pickups are so versatile it's crazy. Bill likes the high-gain stuff, so of course he start with that:

    Here's some random high-gain stuff...pretty cool. He's such a great player, and that amp just kills!

    A little Ratt, anyone? :D

    Yeah, that amp sounds really killer. Reminds a bit of the SLO, it's got the 3D low mid growl thing, but I think the highs are a bit different than the Soldano. It sounds amazing. It's probably $2800 though. What is the model of the amp?

    Oh, the pickups sound nice and clear even with all that gain. :applause:

    A little different flavor...check out how these clean up. Same amp settings, as Bill plays some excerpts from Rush's 'The Trees'...

    No overdrive pedals at all--all amp. He is running a stereo wet/dry rig, with a touch of delay on the second LS-100.

    The amp model is the LS-100...100 watter. (on a side note, I have amp #2)

    You should check his website -- Landry Amps -- and give him a call.

    OK...everyone likes the high gain stuff...but how do they sound clean?

    In this clip Bill starts on the clean channel, doing a little blues on the neck pickup. He then switches to the middle position, then goes to the overdrive for some solo work.

    OK, time for an amp switch. I brought along Rick13's Carol-Ann Revo1, which he was SO kind enough to loan to me. This amp has some history; it was borrowed for a tour by Joe Bonamassa, before he had Alan build him his Carol-Ann JB Signature model.

    After we got it hooked up, Bill felt compelled to do a little Aerosmith:

    OK, prepare for the drop on the talent scale. :D

    Me on the Carol-Ann.

    If my playing didn't scare you off, here's another. The Revo1 is such a fat, creamy amp--it's no wonder Joe B. used it as a starting point for his amp.

    I'll hopefully have some clips of my band playing live up soon (gig last weekend); I have about 3 hours of raw video to go through, and I have to say the Revo1 and the Javelina/LP really sounded great together.

    Great playing BB. Nothing to ashamed of there by any means.

    Amazing playing that does justice to those great pickups. And the videos covered a lot of musical ground, proving the very high tone quality that comes out of these.

    Thanks for posting all the above BB!:thumb:

    I am absolutely loving my Javelina's. Amazing sound and like shown in the vids they handle the crunchy stuff amazingly and still clean up incredibly well!!

    Sounds Good B.

    What's the story on the Javelinas?
    I don't see them on his site.
