    Yea....that's the reason I started this whole thread, as I wasn't sure what the actual freq was with the JE-1000 as i wanted to see if the ABQ was indeed a copy of the JE-1000.

    Well, it all based on the JE-1000. The MM-04 was nearly a direct copy of the JE-1000 and so is the ABQ of the MM-04. The main difference is the price and the availability. The Je-1000 is nearly impossible to find somewhere whereas the MM-04 is not as rarely but available at b-music for over 100&#8364;. And now you can get a pickup+MM-04 for under 100&#8364; in every store.


    Btw... here you can hear the difference between my old Blackout+MM-04 and now J-50BC + Je-1000

    S&D blackout ahb-1 + MM-04
    Jackson J-50BC + JE-1000

    Yea, I looked everywhere for that damn MM-04 and I could only get it shipped to me from Australia(I'm in Florida). So cost of product plus shipping was nearly $200.00 dollars. And the JE-1000 is like some lost relic you need Indiana Jones to find, so I decided to give EMG a try. I mean for $100.00 you really can't beat it, and if I hated it I could always return it locally and get a diff PU.

    So for anyone else who is like me and doesn't have access to the JE-1000 or MM-04 the ABQ is the next best thing.

    Everytime I plug in I get the biggest shit eating grin. I have never been happier with my guitar and its electronics. Been a good year so far. Got my RR24M, the ALX set, a MXR 10 band EQ, a Ibanez TS-9, and my first tube amp....Bugera V22.....contrary to popular believe this amp is pretty sweet. Vintage sounding amp with mid boost pushed into metal territory equals a mess in my pants.

    Arcane...I could deff hear a slight diff in the 2, but its hard to tell if the diff is the PU or the MM-04/Je-1000

    Also, the clip with the blackout...is that with gain boost off? And I am assuming with the J-50BC the boost is on??

    Well, damn......sounds killer w/ no boost...I like it.:headbang:

    Yea, it was basically all of your videos and hearing the tone you got that really made me want to get the JE-1000/MM-04/ABQ.

    Maybe I'm a little geartarded, but what is the SoloC vst?

    It's a plugin which changes your tone a bit. Pro: it makes your tone clearer Con: it kills 100% of your bass

    http://rekkerd.org/lepou-plugins-releases-soloc-v112/

    But KTS was the last cover where I used SoloC.

    No, wait. I also used it for my HCDR cover, the two new Hate me covers, TDE, YBOD and NC. All others were made with my Korg

    Ah...computer stuff...no wonder I didn't know what it was.

    So you planning any more covers Arcane? Nothing like watching a well done cover tune.

    I'm doing Wrath Within and Next In Line next week I think. Or maybe some others, let's see... I just have like 40% of all Bodom songs down and 0% Sinergy yet so you can expect new covers for every week or so - when I have time :)

    The brightness is just a hall in my tone and the agressive... well, I don't know. :)

    Awesome..Can't wait to hear/see them.

    Your tone...its all in the hands.....you can have the same exact set up as someone else, but we all play different so the tone comes out a little different.

    that you have recorded the tracks With an kind of Record machine.

    dont know the name for it but line6 Pod for Example. like those kind of things
    like Mitch uses that korg thing.

    and when i listen to my sound its only out of my amp Speaker.

    thats why your sound is so Clear and bright and aggresive:p

    the line6 thing is not the record machine,the computer is the record machine :p
    the line6 thing just works as DI/Box, A/D converter:loco:

    I still dont really get the clear-sound-amp-speaker-thing.

    I also use the Korg as my amp. And I also still don't get what you mean. You think that my sound is better because I play over an effects-processor which I linked with my notebook (line in) and your sound is worse because the amp you have is shit?
