Adam Nolly Getgood: Demos Bare Knuckle pickups

This is a tutorial video to demonstrate the difference in sound and performance between a ceramic and alnico V magnet in a bridge humbucker, looking specifically at the Nailbomb, which we offer with the option of either.

"From hot, fat blues rock through to aggressive thrash, the Nailbomb explodes with a strong and commanding voice. Contemporary players will take advantage of the full bore reaction of the pickup on full tilt; older school players will enjoy the range of classic tones and response using the volume pot to clean up.

The default Alnico V magnet offers up a huge, deep bottom end with rich, throaty mid range and warm highs. The bridge ceramic magnet option adds more output, tightens the bass response and smoothes the mid range slightly with a brighter cut in the high end, whilst retaining the core voice of the humbucker."

Tomasz Mucha, Fred Brum: Apterygidae and Walkie Talkie

I've redone my "Apterygidae" song cuz I bought a new amp - VHT Deliverance 60 (last time it was a VHT Pittbull CL100) . I've put the new guitar tracks to the same mix so you can compare these two sounds (probably Pitbull sits better in the mix cuz the whole thing was made with that amp in mind).

The solo in the middle part of the song is Fred Brum's work. He's an awesome (7/8/ERG) guitar player. Definitely check him out

I used
Custom "Kiwicaster 7" with Bare Knuckles Nailbomb,
VHT/Fryette Deliverance 60
VHT/Fryette Fat Bottom 412
XR Overdrive Scream (a Tube Screamer copy)
Shure SM57

Musza - Apterygidae (VHT/Fryette Deliverance 60) ft.Fred Brum

New Guitar Day = New Video. I just got this beautiful guitar from Langowski Custom Guitars. Oceancaster, that's her name - such a great and inspiring instrument.It's equipped with Seymour Duncan Sh-5, Sh-1 set, really great and not overpowered hot pickups. The amp is a Fryette SigX with Fat Bottom cab . Boosted with OD808 it's one of the most tight and straight in your face sound I ever heard from an amplifier.

If you like the music/video/production please subscribe my YT channel or like my facebook page:

Hope you enjoy the music, feel free to comment or ask me anything.

Rick Graham: Carl Martin Plexitone & Two Faze Demo


Hey guys, here is a demo of the amazing Plexitone & Two Faze pedals from Carl Martin. I'm using them on the clean channel of a Splawn Nitro 100 and Cornford 4x12 mic'ed with an SM57. Hope you dig the music!
some info on the pedals used:

PLEXITONE: The Carl Martin PlexiTone, is as the name might indicate an unusual high gain three step rocket of an overdrive.
The PlexiTone offers two step overdrive, the crunch channel and the high gain channel, on top of that it gives you an up to 20dB clean boost channel.
The crunch channel goes from subtle overdrive to hard rock gain stage, the high gain channel goes from rock gain stages to absolutely meltdown, with loads of gain and low end, and all in a tone that brings the memory back to the early 80's high gain guitar hero's.
The PlexiTone has as most Carl Martin pedals a built in regulated (+-12V) power supply, to secure the necessary headroom that gives you the great tone.

TWO FAZE: Carl Martin Two Faze is a dual vintage phase shift foot pedal. Designed by Holm Malmquist, to combine the old vintage style phase shifting, with the modern technology's advantages in improved quality in sound and headroom performance.

It has two identical but independent sets of speed controls. Each "Phase shifter" has an LED indicator that lights up when in use and also flashes an indication of the speed setting.

The Carl Martin Two Faze has a mono input/output via quarter inch jack's. The "on" switch allows you to engage or bypass the Two Faze. The "select" switch allows you to switch between the two Phase settings mid song or mid set without having to get down on your knees to alter the controls.

The Carl Martin Two Faze is the perfect choice for guitar and keyboards, or as an excellent effect for bass guitar. It is very rich in sound, it's quiet, and most important of all, does not change the basic sound.

The Carl Martin Two Faze has a built in, regulated (+-12V) power supply which enables us to design circuitry of the highest quality with maximum headroom.

Glen Drover: leaves Queensrÿche

Glen Drover:
"I am really sorry to say that I have decided to bow out of Geoff Tate's Queensrÿche. I was very excited about doing this gig initially, but learned in the past week or so that it's in my best interest not to do this right now. I feel really bad for those who were excited about the idea, and to Geoff himself, who I have to say was very nice to me on my past trip to Seattle. I of course am very disappointed for arriving at this point, and making this decision, to say the least. I sincerely wish Geoff and the band all the luck on what they do in the future."

Jamie Humphries: talks about his Brian May rig

Jamie Humphries My world... It's a Brian May mini Vox.. Used for feedback during show... It's a little amp that's in front if used... The signal splits from my treble booster to my AC30 and to the mini amp.. As my speaker in under the stage miles from me if I need feed back for instance the intro to innuendo, I blend in the little amp on a volume pedal that starts feedback which is picked up through the main amp which is in the pa.. There ya go

Small but perfectly formed
