    Megadeth - We'll Be Back

    What I’m finding interesting about the guitar tone is it sounds good on my earbuds, but when I listen on my nicer headphones and interface it sounds smaller and a bit low in the mix. It cuts still, but it lacks body and doesn’t sound as good as it does on the earbuds imo. That said, I’m digging...

    What poweramp was used? I didn’t catch that in the video.

    Meshuggah gear article for Immutable (EVH) this time

    Yeah it's a bit rounder and warmer. Not that that is a bad thing, but I too didn't find the tone as interesting as some of their others. To contrast, I thought the tone sounded great on Violent Sleep of Reason. That was a few amps layered if I remember correctly.

    The best 5150 ever made?

    I haven’t messed with the 100w EL34, but I also find the 100w Stealth to be relatively forgiving. When you’re trying to keep it super low there is a spot where it will jump up a bit, but I find it not terribly hard to keep it between mouse fart to tv/bedroom level if you want.

    Motor City Pickups -- TWreck

    I've never played real T-Tops, so I can't give a direct comparison; however, my understanding is also that its his take on them. I have a set that I've had in a couple of different guitars - one is a warm sounding flying V and the other a neutral sounding single cut style guitar. I thought they...

    The right Wizard model for me.

    There’s another recent thread with an MCii posted in the rig-talk section that sounds way better than the one’s posted in this thread. I also think mic placement is hurting those other ones. Check out the clip in that other thread, though. It sounds great.

    Motor City 3rd Degree Black Belt???

    I've never played one, but I read a post from Wade on his FB where he said they're actually lower output than the 2nd degree. A3 magnet and voiced a little different, while still being in the "blackbelt" family.

    plugins and di boxes....

    If you don't have an interface, you'd need to start there first.

    EVH 5150III EL34 Ground Loop in FX Loop

    I noticed my 100w 6L6 Stealth getting a ground type of hum in the loop as well. I hardly ever use my loop and I don't recall it doing it previously, but it's been there the past few months. I tried swapping the power tubes and all the preamp tubes one-by-one and it's still there. With a cable in...

    Should I be concerned?

    Oh yeah I caught that it was different guitar. Just saying that I didn't think you were being to anal about that sending that one back.
