    Yesterday I heard an epidemiologist on the radio, he knew what he was talking about. Here in Spain, the spread ratio is 2.6 and the percentage of deaths is 1.1% (ten times more than common flu). He also commented that the 1600 known infected persons in the country are only the tip of the...

    We don't have an specific treatment yet, this covid-19 is so new. Reposition drugs are being tested (treatments previously applied against other diseases) The best hope at this moment is Chloroquine (Resochin), during the 20th century it was used extensively to prevent and treat malaria...

    Global out 1 eq, but no out 2 eq?

    Totally agree on this, in my Ax8 is super useful to have two separate OUT 1/OUT 2 EQ pages. Mmm a really flat FRFR would cost big dolars, de rest of us mortals have to adapt to our not-so-ideal FRFRs...there are 2 factors to consider: -The static factor (thanks Cliff): the bright side is that...

    Would anyone know what guitar this is (see pics inside)?

    This guitar gave me great reminiscences of Grohl's signature (the holes, the headstock). After a quick search I found that Grohl has always been a long-time fan of the Trini Lopez signature model guitar that Gibson built from 1964-1971.

    Are you talking about this video, right?

    Axe-Fx III "Zen Master" vs Real Zendrive

    All is clear now, you have the same cable and therefore the same filter curve, but when the pedal is active its high output impedance moves the filter to a lower frequency point and it becomes more evident, in a graph we would see the same curve shape but displaced toward the left. When the...

    Axe-Fx III "Zen Master" vs Real Zendrive

    I find this statement somewhat confusing, this difference in the high end would be feasible if Camilo were playing with the guitar directly plugged into the Axe III ergo avoiding the tone-sucker coiled cable, but watching the video gives me the impression that the coiled cable is present in both...

    Balancing Cleans to Distortion

    Some time ago I noticed that cleans are more reactive to my strumming than distortion. In fact we can say it the other way and will be more right: cleans are transparent and high gain compress the nuances of your playing...I could have a nice clean for arpeggios or soft passages, but the same...
