... City

I have the morning all to myself today, and I have been playing with the #34 the last few days. So, today I finally recorded a piece of Paradise City, which may be my all time favourite GnR song.

I am not sure about the playing, but boy does #34 sound glorious. When the two guitars finally come in on the distorted tones - It's just massive.


I attached the preset. Scene 1 is the clean intro, scene 2 is the PRS distorted tone and Scene 3 is the Gibson distorted tone. Unfortunately, the preset uses three commercial IRs that are (obviously) not included. Cab X is is the OH 412 MAR PR-H55 57 from the new OH/FAS Player Pack. Cab Y is MR-Pete_CAB_M01_Multi_I and MR_CB71_SIG_05_TR from CabIR.eu - I actually thought I used their Marshall Mode Four IR, but it seems like, I made the mistake of not saving properly.

EDIT: Apparently, I also recorded the Gibson using the Wrecker Rockett, WTF?? Oh well, still sounds good :)

The 800 #34 is a beast and i wonder whats the purpose of leaving the 800 and the modded 800... wont touch them again lol
I haven't had time to dial in the #34, but on first touch I didn't really like it. (I know, heresy!) Much prefer the 800 and 800 Mod. So please leave them!! :)

Thanks for all the positive responses guys

I never really bonded with the two other JCM800 in the box, my favourite higher gain Marshall is the Brit Silver. But this one definitely gives it a run for its money. It might even win.

That PRS is purdy

I agree - Here's some porn :p


But actually, the green Les Paul often gets the most attention

Ditto here as well. When I was resetting my amp block, I temporarily switched from 800 Mod to 800 #34... didn't sound as full as the 800 Mod.

Man, this scene 2 is golden for AFD stuff!!
My cat aproves your patch, I played the sweet child intro and she came to the cave instantly hehe!
I tried some IRs and have 2 winners:
For rhythm with bridge pickup-Factory 58-4x12 TV Mix C1 (ML)
For soloism with neck pickup-OH 412 MAR EDVH 57-00 of the Heavy Hitters Pack by Ownhammer (Marshall Mode Four 4x12 cab, G12EVH speakers, 57 mic positioned close to center)
I tried to compensate: For the harsher pickup the warmer IR and viceversa!
