    Power amp(s) for three 1x12 60w cabs

    Metallica Black Album Tone

    Here’s a preset I’ve cooked up to play some Black Album tunes with. Amp/cab/settings/EQ were translated as best as possible from notes/pictures of the Black Album sessions and subsequent tour. I used Fabfilter Pro Q3 just to analyze the EQ curves from the album, and ultimately this helped me...

    Metallica - "Orion" cover

    Metallica's Orion is truly a masterpiece. I don't use that word lightly or often or for many things but I honestly believe it applies here. It is so masterfully crafted that I can't really put it into words. It's a very special song to me and I think it kinda shows when I play it. I tried to my...

    Amps of the Axe-Fx III

    After owning the Axe Fx II and now the III, I realized I never actually explored all the cool amps we have, so I decided start exploring them. I am going through all the amps, starting from the very top with the Fender 5F Tweeds. Anyone have any cool tricks on using the tweeds?

    First it's the Axe-Fx III and second is my real Mark V. (the ground noise should give it away) Not 100% sure if you know me but a quick recap is that I love real amps, I love the Axe-Fx, I even like a couple of other modelers. The amp that I believe most modelers struggle with is Mesa Boogie...
