My Live Rig - PRS SC245 & Fractal AX8

2112

Fractal Fanatic
Hey Leon, enjoy all your videos, post and awesome tones!! I just got a PRS SC245 (2014 NOS) for a bargain price (it was birthday present form my wife!). I'm a little disappointed by the tone from the pickups (#7's), they sound a bit one dimensional to my ears. Can you tell me which pickups are installed in yours? It sounds way closer to the tone I expected! Oh and watch out that for that X-Mann (my brother from another mother!), like a fungus he grows on you ;);):grinning::grinning:

They're 245 pickups, definitely some of my favourites. I'm guessing they're similar to something like a Duncan Custom 5 or Custom Custom?

Ha, Ha, Ha....Hey Rushian, congrats on the Birthday PRS Guitar man!!!! I wish my wife would do that....but since she dosen’t, I’ll have to keep buying my own Birthday Guitars! :D

You NEED to download this killer Mesa MKII C++ preset ASAP man. It’s the 1st preset that directly translated over to my set-up.

One day I hope to be called “The poor Mann’s Leon Todd” too! :p

Here’s LT’s preset (Scenes 1,3 & 4) & how they translated to my guitar & gear.....:cool:

I’m truly in love with this one!!!!

Thanks again LT!!!!

Great to know it works on your setup (which is very different to mine). Cheers for the shoutout too!

I've had a few questions about how I use the AX8 live, so here's how I do it (albeit in a controlled environment for this vid). I use the USA C++ model with a 57/121 blend from the Bipolar Cab Pack setup with 4 scenes for original shows (crunch, rhythmic delay, rotary and delay, lead) with a Mission SP-1 for wah. A scene controller takes care of gain changes and I use a subtle PEQ boost for solos.

Mindless self indulgence not included :p

Damn that sounds Smooth !! luv this tone
