    Reduce the sound of the pick

    You could also just change picks. I use Tortex when I want the pick clicking/scraping sound, but then when I dont want the sharp click/scraping sound I use Nylon picks. I've even recently experimented with Timber Tones picks made out of various wood and that pretty much eliminates that...

    New Ownhammer IRs - Questions

    Are you planning any new High Gain collections? Some of my favorites which are no longer available were pretty much all the HGE IRs using 5881. The Diezel v30 16ohm is wonderful and the Sunn stock speaker is amazing. Would love to see some new releases in this category.

    Working on a Tool (Adam Jones) tone.

    He does use Recto v30 cabs but also mixes in SUNN cabs in the studio. Another thing is there is a shiver in his sound that seems to be a combination of the Diezel CH3 with gain maxed and a digital flanger in the mix. I think having the Diezel Blue is key and the second amp is about finding...

    Working on a Tool (Adam Jones) tone.

    Experimenting with cabs will get you the rest of the way. I have gotten close with the Diezel Blue face and a Friedman HBE using the OH HGE Diezel IR's. Unfortunately Kevin at OH recently revamped his site and delisted those cabs. Maybe if you emailed him you could get your hands on it...

    I've experienced this more on some IR's vs others. Recently it was the Justin York Collection. Shouldn't what you hear using the .ir directly from the cablab browser sound exactly the same as using None when sending from the mixer? It seems like its cutting of the low end more than...

    Hi Gain tones overly Dark Muffled
