Music created using SynthMaster from Band-in-a-Box www.pgmusic.com

A look at some of the deceptions and lies from NASA and about space, space travel, and the true nature of our realm.

Comparing the Heavy Hatchet distortion to the Purple Nightmare Preamp (pretty darn close), and hearing how the Heavy Hatchet cleans up, and if there's a sound difference whether in front of the amp (distortion mode) or in an amp's FX Loop (Preamp mode).

https://driftwoodamps.com/

From classic rock to modern metal, Driftwood's Heavy Hatchet delivers four mode combinations of distortion (Vintage, Modern, Lo-Gain & Hi-Gain) that are amp-like and thick. Run it in front of a clean amp or as a preamp through an FX Loop (two modes). This is one addictive pedal that sounds simply fantastic!

Big, thick and heavy... and it cuts! If you're looking for that grain that rips, but doesn't sound like a chainsaw out of control, then Flesh Rot v2 is the beast! Intense, but it doesn't punch you in the face like the Diesel Herbert.

Dinosaurs are nothing more than lizards that did not survive a reset. They are not millions of years old, nor do fossils suggest as much. Rather, fossilization and petrification happen much faster than we realize, and in some instances, within an instant.

If you're using IRs, then this program is a must. Tailoring your sound never was easier, whether customizing IRs you like, or using the hundreds available with CABINETRON, you can stack up to 8 IRs (no kidding!), create a balance, a unique impulse response, and so much more. This program is addictive!

If you have a small tube amp (5 watts and under), it can cost more for a reactive load, for direct recording, than the cost of the amp. This has changed, with Hagerman's REACTOR.

The Zakk Wylde NOMAD guitar (in RedRum finish). Heavy construction, solid, and a quality instrument. I made a few modifications (sound & cosmetic), but this is a very decent guitar for the price, and if you like thick necks and active pickups, this should be a consideration.

You get three channels, including a Fenderesque clean (great pedal platform), an aggressive crunch, and a full, singing lead (both distortion channels are different). The VESTA sounds big and thick (very amp-like), yet the detail remains clear, even with the gain up full. With switches for Bright, Feel, and Mode, there's a lot to like and a lot of different tone qualities possible.

Well, almost instantly (you have to attach between the strings and frets). Best of all, no damage, drilling, etc., and it is very affordable. Why buy a fretless guitar when you can have the FLATTER? Quick installation and quality sound that is both traditional and unusual (relative to fretted instruments). And, yes, I find this easy to play. For single notes, you aim for the fret and not between the frets. And so, if you are playing an A note, then the fret closest to the bridge direction is what you land on, whereas any slight deviation will produce a minor off-note (which can be very desirable with vibrato techniques). Chords are more challenging, but not much so... think of reduces chord shapes with open strings (if and when applicable), rather than trying to barre all six strings, etc.
