    Moving to in ear monitoring from tube amps... How do I create softness in the high end

    Hi @tonejunkie You could also try a multiband compressor just before the output, with just the offending frequencies being compressed. Thanks Pauly

    What do people mean when they say modelers "lack the amp feel"?

    It’s been a while for me, but from what I remember, the feel of a tube amp moving all that air, the volume, the way that volume interacts with the guitar, the sustain from that interaction, the physical feeling of the back of your pants legs vibrating, the things in the room rattling….no...

    Can you actually get a strength or muscular endurance workout playing your guitars?

    Your left hand certainly gets stronger. I had a guy I was fighting once ask "Why is your left hand so strong??" I was playing a lot of bass back then. True story - I'd never thought about it 'till he asked that question. Thanks Pauly

    ChatGPT ends the tone wood debate

    Should I buy a '65 Fender Strat ?!

    If by 'Paul' you mean me, you're incorrect. I have never owned a 60s strat so am not intimately familiar with them. What I was saying was that the strat sound I'd always had in my head was not possible with my Fender USA strat, whereas it is with the Silver Sky. Hope I cleared that up. Pauly

    Should I buy a '65 Fender Strat ?!

    I have to agree with Rick here. I had an American Strat for years that just never did 'it' for me, so I sold it recently. I picked up a Silver Sky (SE - The cheap one) a few weeks ago and OMG there is the Strat sound I've been after all these years. Thanks Pauly
