Guitar tuned down to F# to hear the low end response and tightness. Guitar straight into amp. Need to play around with Presence, Treble, and Bright switch at this tuning. It sounded like a blanket covering the speakers with everything at noon. Settings used in the clip are on the thumbnail photo.
Testing the Graphic EQ on the red channel. First part is with the EQ off. I run the mids around 11:00 with it off. Second part is with the EQ on, and I bring the mids up to around 2:30, but cut 3dB @ 630hz and 6dB @ 1.2khz with the GEQ. The amp overwhelms the phone camera do this does very little to showcase the actual tone of the amp; just the difference between the EQ in and out of circuit.
6505 Lead Channel, clean boosted with a Duncan Forza, MXR 10 band in the effects loop. Lefty Fender neck bolted onto an unknown blonde body. ‘52 black guard, Dimarzio Area T bridge pickup (Duncan Lil 59 neck not used in this clip). The gain (just under 4 or 11 o’clock) is basically the same spot I use for humbuckers as well. I adjust it slightly with any guitar; but just wanted to showcase a single coil used in a tech-death setting.
2006 USA 6505 with =C= 6L6’s. Seymour Duncan Forza for a clean boost, MXR 10 band in the loop. Custom Padalka Neptune guitar with custom Elysian Trident II pickups. High Gain Input, Green Channel, Crunch and Bright Switches engaged. Mesa 2x12 with V30’s.
I had to use a clean boost (Seymour Duncan Forza) to cut bass, even with the bass control set to 0. From here I am able to bring the Resonance up to 2:00 and add a few dB at 125hz with an MXR 10 band in the series loop (this amp also has a parallel loop, with a blend knob for each channel on the front). The mic placement for this sucks a little and makes it sound fizzier than the actual room, but it gives an idea of how tight these amps can get with a clean boost and EQ.
