    It does sound great, but I think that Robert could plug into a concrete block and get some sweet tones

    Very nice as usual. Was the drive all amp? Reverb digital pedal? Lovely playing. Think I favour the clean sounds but both are cool.

    Thanks very much amigos!

    The reverb/delay is from my DAW. Just a little bit of verb for the main parts of the demo. I used delay on the intro track, especially on the G&L guitar part. Ambient delays. I used delay on the solo too.

    The drive is all the amp, except for the intro track solo. I used a little boost from an overdrive pedal, just to get a bit more "hang" with the single coils. It didn't change the tone really, just gave me a smidgen more sustain.

    Gracias again!

    Sounds really great Wasn't it too much when you set up the volume full up ? 15 watts is very loud usually. I love the vibrato and it suits well even with the crunch and distorded sound

    What do you mean by "too much"? Do you mean volume? I was using the Suhr Reactive Load, so volume wasn't an issue.

    Glad you like it. Yeah the vibrato is super cool. I got into composing mode and had fun with that intro track... it's fun to do little mini-songs like that.

    Probably didn't explain myself properly I was surprised that you could stay so close to the amp when you cranked up the volume, I can't stay too close to my Tweed vibrolux amp (which is only 10W BTW) not even at half volume. Do you know of he would ship to europe ?
    Yeah because I'm using the Reactive Load and impulse responses on the computer, I'm not going through a real speaker cab. I can crank the amps as I want, and regulate the output level via my soundcard. Very handy for home use!

    Shipping to Europe? I don't know. Just contact Kevin at koamps@gmail.com and he'll tell ya.

    By the way, I'm going to Grenoble on July 9th for 5 days. First visit in France for me! My daughter (14) and I are going to Sweden in July, and she was on an exchange program last year and stayed for 3 months with a family in Grenoble. We figured, what the heck, let's stop by there on our way to Sweden.
