Hey guys, this is a comparison between the Axe-Fx II XL and the Diezel VH4s. I rerecorded this Gary Moore style tune for a special event - this time with the Fractal Audio Axe-Fx. I thought it might be interesting for you to hear "the difference".

News: PRS Guitars Introduces Revamped McCarty Model

PRS Guitars Introduces Revamped McCarty Model

(STEVENSVILLE, MD) June 2, 2015 – The PRS McCarty model pays homage to a legacy of innovation. As the President of Gibson during a true golden era of guitar building (1950-1966), Ted McCarty was a pioneer of the electric guitar and musical instrument industry. In the late 1980’s, Paul Reed Smith called on Ted to consult with him on guitar design and production techniques. He not only served as Paul’s mentor but became a great friend of Paul and everyone he met at PRS.

“Ted’s instruments and patented parts came across my bench when I was in my West Street shop, so I knew who he was. I asked him to consult because he had made such an impact on the industry – think about it the Flying V, the ES 335. He was a real champion,” said Paul Reed Smith.

In 1994, PRS released the first McCarty, an instrument that incorporated the full spectrum of techniques and knowledge Paul had gained from Ted as well as his own experiences as a guitar builder. It is in honor of Ted McCarty – his knowledge, his friendship, and his memory – that PRS reintroduces the McCarty model.

“When we started working together, it was very apparent that he loved being back in the industry. I am proud that he helped establish our legacy and that we were able to help highlight his,” Paul Reed Smith.

The PRS McCarty model features a slightly thicker back for enhanced tone and sustain and the new 58/15 treble and bass pickups, which were personally designed by Paul Reed Smith. 58/15’s are a vintage style pickup with exceptional clarity and focused midrange. Additional appointments include a push/pull tone control with a 3-way toggle pickup switch for a complete palette of tones, a bound rosewood fretboard, and PRS stoptail bridge. For full specifications and to hear the McCarty in action, please visit www.prsguitars.com/mccarty.

Steve Morse: Roland Boss interview - From the Dixie Dregs to Deep Purple

You studied music at the University of Miami. Do you live near Miami now?
No, I’m up in the northern part of the state, more like Georgia. I’ve spent most of my life living in Georgia. My family moved there when I was a kid.
Hence the “dixie” part of the Dixie Dregs?
Yeah, that was actually a joke. We just thought it was funny. We were teenagers at the time; for a teenager, a funny name is much more worthy than one people might be able to remember. [Laughs.]
I understand that you met Rod Morgenstein, the longtime Dixie Dregs’ drummer, at college in Miami while he was studying piano there.
Yeah. I was actually in school to play classical guitar, but since I was a beginner they really didn’t want me. So I got stuck in the jazz department, who didn’t want me [either], but they were a little bit more tolerant; although they didn’t want me playing in the jazz ensembles, they did put me in all the classes. In my improv class, we’d have an assignment like playing over changes, and everybody in the class would have to play, and I thought Rod was really melodic and just different. There was something special about him, and I thought this would be a great guy to do some writing with.
Then it turned out we really needed a drummer, and Hiram Bullock told me Rod was a great drummer. I said, “Are you kidding me? He’s a keyboard player in my improv class.” He said, “Yeah. But you should hear him play drums. He plays drums like a musician.” That’s how it ended up.
For the BOSS Tone Radio Podcast, we caught up with Steve at his home in Florida in between a trip to Spain and the start of an upcoming Deep Purple tour. The following is an excerpt from our talk. To listen to the complete conversation, visit the podcast page at BOSS Users Group.

Read on for some reviews of PARADISE LOST's critically acclaimed new album:

"The 14th visit to this sprawling PARADISE LOST estate is one of the most satisfying yet-'The Plague Within' reveals a band that has put in the time, blood, sweat, and oceans of tears necessary to perfect its particular/peculiar craft, and is now wholly focused on imbuing the resulting sound with ever-greater power." - 9/10, Decibel Magazine (USA)

"Deadly solemn, mature crystalline, elegance counterposed against a celebratory moderation of atavistic extreme impulses."  - 9/10, Metal Hammer (UK)

"PARADISE LOST have pounded a line straight through their lineage and have marched forth more relevant, heavier and diverse than they have sounded in years." - The Quietus (UK)

"...new opus 'The Plague Within' is simply the most potent expression of the band's morose ethos in two decades." - The Guardian (UK)

"PARADISE LOST travel back to their very roots to find the perfect balance between epicness, melancholy and brutality."  - Lagrosseradio (F)

"Back to the early years, massive riffs, great melodies, death vocals and doom influences along with this hypnotic charm" - Metallian (F) 

"With PARADISE LOST's impressive song-writing capabilities, has resulted in an excellent album that is sure to please fans of all eras of these legends." - 88/100, Lords Of Metal (NL) 

"On 'The Plague Within' you can hear the very best side of PARADISE LOST." - 85/100, Aardschok (NL)
