Here is a quick ghetto preproduction for a new song idea of mine.

I used my Torpedo VB-101 for the loadbox/cab/mic/miking/post-EQ part.
Drums are Superior 2, Bass is Trilian VSTi.

Let me know what you think so far.

Disclaimer : Guitars are sloppy as fuck cuz' i'm rusty as hell (lots of already shitty takes being copy-pasted and stuff, shame on me), strings are super old, and the amp tubes are dying, and i used the 50w instead of the 100w mode by accident (AGAIN ! :) )

Played some thrash & punk riffing on my Fender Telecaster FMT tuned in E standard. Back then (see this old clip : http://tonefinder.com/index.php?section=id&value=13049) i had trouble with the original bridge pup (Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates Plus) which sounded a bit woofy in the lows and not tight enough. I had to drop the gain a lot to have something tight enough for my liking. But then it was too dry-sounding :)

Now i've put a Seymour Duncan JB in the bridge, a Graphtech String Savers saddle and Sperzel Auto-Lock tuners and a fresh set of strings. I feel the lows are a little bit tighter which allows me to dial some more gain and i dig it now. The tone has not changed drastically though.

Let me know what you think (besides the sloppy playing :) ).

NB : Two Notes Torpedo VB-101 used for the miking (cab/mic/miking/post-EQ) part.

Just put a fresh set of strings on my newly acquired Fender Telecaster Special Edition FMT in standard E and trying a good tone for tight thrash metal a la old Pantera, Metallica, Exodus, Leeway, Sepultura, Slayer...

I had to dial a lot of bass out of my amp EQ and keep the gain low to keep a tight tone... what do you guys thing of that tone ? Is this ok or weird ?

I find it ok but still a bit too loose/untight/too fat sounding for fast single notes palm mutes, even considering my performance here was a total slopfest :)

I guess i'm gonna try other bridge pickups soon.

Quick twangy/funky-ish tone test (intro riff from New Found Glory's "Coming Home") with my new guitar : Fender Telecaster Special Edition FMT.
Plugged into my Engl SE 6L6 into the Two Notes Torpedo VB-101 (miking sim unit) with some post-EQ.
One track in the center. No Post-FX (raw guitar track except for EQ).
Sloppy playing, old strings, old tubes.

Pickups : middle position, single coil mode, volume halfway : Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates (Bridge) / SH-1N RP 59 Reverse Polarity (Neck)

My submission to the "Kevin Talley Guitar Contest Feb 2012".

Premixed drumtrack was provided by the almighty Kevin Talley (drummer for Daath, Six Feet Under, and ex-tons of amazing bands : Dying Fetus, Misery Index, Chimaira, ...), i did the rest (guitars, bass, premastering...).

Guitars : Schecter Hellraiser C1-FR (EMG81/EMG85) - Little Labs RedEye3DPhantom (DI/Reamp box) - Engl SE 6L6 - Torpedo VB-101 (engl 4x12 V30 cab, Blue Dragonfly Condenser Mic, close-miked, low cut, post-eq) - RME FireFace UC interface - Reaper (DAW) with HighCut EQ.
Bass : MIDI programming in Guitar Pro, and then played by Trilian VSTi in Reaper (DAW), with just a low end boost EQ.
Mixing, premastering : in Reaper (DAW)

the usual disclaimer : sloppy playing, old amp tubes, old strings

I did my best considering the short amount of time i had left to do it. It's hard to write a song upon a drumtrack though. Recipe for writing phony riffs IMO, which happened a bit here :)

Let me know what you think.
