Hear are two sound demos I did myself using the Dirty Boy and getting a really FAT tone:

+1 :cheers:

A quick question about the variac - does it also reduce the heater voltage, or just the B+ ?
Great tones come in small glass jars

The Variac does not alter the heaters. They are all kept constant. Remember, this has 5 transformers.

I used my Carvin SH550 on the first track called Drive. The second Track I used my Mahogany Strat that is the same guitar I used for my VH tone clips on the Peacemaker and Scorpion.

This is the first chance I have had to listen to the tracks in the studio through monitors and be able to crank it through the 4/15 dual horn JBL`s on the studio PA system since I have been out of town alot.

The clean sound is very nice, but for me getting a clean sound is pretty easy.

The heavy track with the Pedal is really great sounding that rhythm crunch sound really sounds nice and heavy and has a very "alive" quality I felt the hair on my head tingling. I like the lead sound it is a bit processed sounding but It kind of grew on me it seems like I`m hearing tones way before their time of becoming a standard and I`m getting new ideas on what might be possible for me.

I really liked the Drive track heavy,fat and I liked the lead tone more very natural and organic sounding track and thats what I lean toward in heavy style music.

Top shelf overdrive and distortion, I can only wonder what I could do with a old Jackson soloist with EMG`s De tuned with the deep switches on and the amp set for maximum heaviness.

Cheers Vic and nice chops.

Thanks much. That is a very fine assesment.

I am more proud of these clips now that I had some time to work with these amps for a change.

This is my latest Scorpion Demo, Hard Rock Tone

This is a milder version Scorpion Demo with a fat lead.

This is my Special Edition Plexi 45 SE Zeppelin Tone

Very nice clips that scorpion really has a nice sound.

The Zep cover just kills, I found myself cheering you on wondering if you could do it and you did, very fun. I was amazed at the level of sound quality and playing it`s not the most easy of Zep covers to nail.

Thanks for the clips that was fun. :cheers:

Hey,
Thanks very much for the kudos on the clips. That Zep cover went over pretty big with a lot of guys. I got flooded with emails. Didn't think it would go over so big. It's hard getting that sound right isn't. We all work at it a lot. That's what makes us the crazy obsessed amp nut jobs we are!

Did I over state?

I don`t think you over stated, I see too many great players that pay little attention to their sound and never reach the place of sounding as great as they are playing.

New sounds and tones inspire me to create new songs and if the overall tone and crunch isn`t there I might as well watch Twins Baseball instead of laboring in the studio. :)

I know I`m probably too fussy about sound but I`ve never been asked to turn my amps down, only up, it tells me I`m on the right track. :)
