    Treble Boosters Old, New and In-between. Demo, story, Drive block and preset.

    Apologies as I have to drop a name for this one. One of my oldest friends, Andy Cichon, who plays bass for Billy Joel and Shania Twain, is also a killer guitarist. Andy loves his old Marshalls, fuzzes and overdrives, and lately, treble boosters. He's been consulting me about the latter and I've...

    Burg's Super (Reverb) and a Johnny Marr Jag. Free preset/demo.

    Couldn't help myself. 10.01 compelled me to grab my favourite jangle machine and throw together some big, steely Super action. So here's a preset to play with. Please note that it was voiced with a Johnny Marr Jag and its Bare Knuckle pickups which are quite low output, so you may need to tweak...

    My Demo Amps - preset d/l and video

    A few of the amps and sounds I use to demo guitars and pedals for a myriad of manufacturers. They're not fussed about the 'real' amp thing; nor are the viewers much anymore. Anyway, I strapped this together this afternoon for fun and thought you might get a laugh and hopefully some enjoyment...

    9.01 Rumbles

    I had cause to update my recent Rumbles (Dumbles) preset today. Dano sent me a very cute '59 DC NOS+ to demo.

    Boston Calling. Free D/L and vid demo

    An AX8 101 vid: Put together a Marshall rig in minutes - video

    I've already posted this in the Axe-FX II Recordings forum but it is probably better suited to being here. This vid takes you through the basic building stages for putting together a classic rock rig based around a 50W Marshall, quad, some effects and a couple of Scenes. Rock on and have a...

    An AX8 101 vid for classic rock enthusiasts thinking of diving in.

    Build your own Marshall rig in minutes. That's pretty much the gist of this video. Hopefully it makes the process of preset building look attractive and easy enough to chin scratching fence sitters to convince them to have a go. I for one say they won't be sorry!

    Lollar Jag pickups | Vibro-King | Mastery: One for the offset freaks

    As the title says, folks. A friend from Australia sold me this quite amazing Jag he put together so I thought I may as well demo it and the Lollars it features. The Vibro-King model and 3x10 cab proved to be the best men for the job. Here's my preset if you'd like to give it a shot -...

    Crystal Reverbs and the Ghost Fleet Blues

    A new Ibanez 8-string rolled in yesterday. It's a gorgeous thing and plays itself, it's so darned comfortable. Here's my first excursion with it, fluffs and all, using its not inconsiderable clean tones with the mighty preset #134: Crystal Reverbs, unmodded.

    Morgan AC20 and the Brian May Guitar... YT demo

    As the title says, folks. Perhaps a place to start with for your own Brian May musings. Here's the video. And here's the preset. http://axechange.fractalaudio.com/detail.php?preset=4266 The guitar was a little out of tune until I gave the whammy a flick about a minute in. Apologies as I...

    Morgan AC20 with Treble Boost in front - Brian May Guitars demo (video)

    I had to demo a BMG Special for my channel yesterday. That meant I needed to come up with a reasonable patch that paid homage to the referred and revered tones of Dr Brian Harold May. I remember reading that the Morgan AC20 Deluxe was pretty good with a Treble Booster in front of it and it is...

    Triptik suite for Charvel or higher output axes (video demo)

    I can't get past the Carol Anns because they work so damn well for me on stage. Here's a preset featuring four scenes based around the Triptik Clean and Classic models, with a bunch of effects thrown in. The preset itself can be downloaded from...

    Charvel PM San Dimas to Dual Cleans, SLP's, AC-15

    I'm using Youtube as a sounding board for pickup choice for this cool little Charvel I scored recently. But in doing so I was able to give a reasonable demo of all the presets mentioned above.

    Q2 Double Verb with Smitty and Lollar Gold Foils

    I'm loving the cleans from Quantum 2.00. Coupled with a Smitty Custom Guitars Strat fitted with Lollar Gold Foils and I have a suite of goodness. The preset can be downloaded from http://axechange.fractalaudio.com/detail.php?preset=4066

    Burg's Vibro-Lux suite ... and a custom Strat! Oh, and the preset. :D

    I rant and vent on Facebook about probably never being able to afford a (decent) guitar that was built in the same year I was - 1963. I hook up with a guy who turns out to be a master luthier living in Queensland (sunny Australia) and he and I team up for a build. We call our guitar the BK63...

    Silverface Twin and Muff vid. Noise alert.

    Late at night, half cut, he decides it would be a good idea to jam his Normandy Alumicaster into a Muff and Silverface Twin (Q1.02) to see what transpires. Stupidly, following his indulgent sonic rant, he turns off the cameras, Pro Tools and Axe-FX II without saving the preset. Oops. Oh well...next.
