    Talking Pushing amp into more aggressive tone....

    These are also old clips, but since we moved....hehe
    Anyways I was pushing the amp very hard to get a more in your face sound, so it is slightly fuzzy on purpose.....
    Here is the first one.

    The second is recorded with less volume.

    Just wished that I had captured it better....

    I think it sounds great. Not overly fuzzy, just right

    No not Axis...Wolfgang.
    This time it is the Demon.
    Gave me that old sound.
    As for the recording, I placed the mic too far away, and it should have been closer to the cone.....oh well
    Thanks man...it was fun to hear that odd Bassman doing crunchy stuff...
    I need that Plexitop....grr hehe

    Hehe yeah thanks, I am trying my best to choke out the remaining life in them
    They need replacement badly
    I am getting some RCA replicas for it, I hope it will give me the last I need from the amp.
    Otherwise I may have to dig up a big Marshall.....hehe maybe I should nick VHoholics onetube wonderhead

    Heh the Demon is a great pickup, I tried it in the strat with good results, and back in the Wolfgang with equal good sounds....never had anything but fun with this pickup
    And after hearing Marins Seth clip I finally got convinced that I should get one of those too...hehe I have too many humbuckers

    I just couldn't get a nice focussed sound outta my demon...I liked the overal toneality of it (the eq curve) but it didn't quite have enough output for me..I couldn't get a tight enough sound! you've heard my playing style so you probably have an idea of where I'm commin' from =D

    that's why I like the JB...similar sound, but with just right right amount of output so I can do cool muted stuff

    Hehe play harder
    Lol I am not disliking highoutput pickups, but somehow I loose bandwidth with those things, I have my Wolfgang pickups and I like the sound of them, but they do not breathe as much as my PAF style pickups, oh well it is still fun for extra screaming guitarsounds

    Uh but it is a great highend......screaming and singing.....I drove the poweramp on a 5150II all the way and then gave the preamp what it needed.....wow.
    Awesome rocksound.
    No buzz or chainsaw there, only fat screaming ballsy sounds...but loud

    Great, I saw him some 10 years ago with hair and with Stuart Hamm ....hehe it was awesome...lots of great sounds, the drummer used some triggereffetcs for all the crazy sounds from Surfing.
    I saw the online thing from NAMM, it sounded good, and you heard him with a band where it also sounded good...guess it is a sweet amp then

    I saw that NAMM show movie too =D too much talking in that clip! lol...

    but it's definetly well thought out from the sounds of it..I like how he was talking about the clean channel being clean but being voiced to accept pedals and whatnot...which shows it's versatile..and it also has a noise gate built right into the head...not something you find with alotta tube amps..

    I'm looking forward to going to a music store, picking up an axis or a wolfie and plugging into one for an hour or two and not buying it...LOL
