  • heard the worst tones ever last night

    and they should have been good.

    Guitarist 1:
    5150
    Mesa recto 4x12
    Ibanez SZ720

    Guitarist 2:
    Engl Screamer
    Orange PPC412
    Schecter Tempest Custom

    the sound was pure fizz, no definition, no real grunt either. The band were playing double time punk in the style of Ignite, Good Riddance and Death By Stereo. If you're going to play fast palm muted chords you need superb definition and plenty of aggression, i dunno if it was their playing or an inability to dial in an amp.

    Mix of playing and dialing treble + presence too high, mids too low etc..

      I remember when a sound with pure fizz, no definition and no real grunt was the IDEAL sound for punk.

        This.

        Kinda like the douche I saw the other day running a Boss ME-70 into a Fender Hot Rod Deville.

        **************** sounded like mosquitoes ****************ing. Then, get this, in the 3-piece band a buddy of mine was filling in on bass for, the dude has the audacity to try to play and sing "Great Gig in the Sky" and FAILS painfully at both. :facepalm:

        We suffered through it for one set, made fun of my buddy's "how the **************** did I get roped into this" expression & got the **************** out of there.

        ****************, I had a guy audition for my band wheel in a Triple Rec head, Marshall cab, a brand new black Les Paul Custom along with his laptop & Guitar Rig floorboard, listened to him tell me how much "better" the Guitar Rig setup was than my SKB Stage 5 board full o' pedals, then proceed to "wow" us equally with his lack of skills and the fact that he made a Triple Recto half stack sound like a hand-held transistor radio.

          it was just terrible, the amount of high end just cut out any sound from the hats and cymbals, it also sounded like there was a massive gap in the frequencies between the bass guitar and the two guitarists, i think there might have been some scooping going on!

              high end is the hardest to dial

              If you're too low, you're mixing with the bass rig and you'll sound muddy.
              If you're too high, you're mixing with the vocals/drums too much

              Hard to find that nice medium imo
