    Something went wrong at the mastering stage maybe? It's severely distorted dude.

    It would have been better if you recorded the amp before it was modded so you could hear the changes the mod made.

    Interesting sound, not my sort of thing - sounds like a marshall with a boost in front of it that's adding gain and mids.

    Thanks for the post (& video!).

    I know what you mean, but I bought this amp brand new with the mod from http://www.modsquadmusic.com/. But I think that is a great idea you have there. Even worth tracking down one so I can do a comparison clip. Thanks for the feed back.

    Your welcome. It is an interesting sound, and it does have a similar attack with a boost, but it is really tight, and it retains the thunderous low end. I generally do not use allot of preamp gain, its at about 60%. I like to crank the power amp more these days. I get just enough gain to make the pinch harmonics to squeal when I want them to, but I like a cleaner driven sound. I didn't use a boost on the leads on this recording, but do when playing live.
