Guys, we've spent considerable money converting the Les Paul Forum to this new XenForo platform, and we have ongoing monthly operating expenses. THE "DONATIONS" TAB IS NOW WORKING, AND WE WOULD APPRECIATE ANY DONATIONS YOU CAN MAKE TO KEEP THE LES PAUL FORUM GOING! Thank you!
I love Gary’s reverb on this. I’m not normally into effects but can anybody help identify what he’s using? I like that ‘fluttery’ sound on some of the bent notes.
Here’s the clip:
I’ve finally got enough cash to buy one of these.
Though I’ve played USA standard Les-Pauls for years I have no experience of custom shop reissues. I’m travelling to both this weekend to try them before I make a choice. They’re virtually the same price.
In your opinion is there a...
I have a couple of USA Les-Pauls which play and sound great (fitted with wcr pups), however I want them to look more vintage. In addition to m69 ring replicas I'm also looking at nickel bridges and tail pieces. The Creamtone pictures look great but I hear great things about Faber. Those of you...
For the last 4 years I've been using a Super Lead and LOVING it!!! For the last month I've been using a jtm45 and loving it.
Most of the music I listen to is 60s and 70s classic rock - les Paul's and plexis. I'm always on the look out for new things to listen to. Is there anybody current out...
The bass player in my band brought his jtm 45 to rehearsals last night for me to try. Oh my! I had the channels linked, lead channel full and normal channel at 12 o'clock. I had prescience at 11 o'clock and the others between 3 and 4 o'clock. It sounded awesome!!!!! Front pup with the tone...
So, I've had WCR Crossroads in my main LP for years and tonally I love them. However, the one thing they don't do is this - when you hold a long note at high volume it doesn't trail off into cool harmonic singing feedback.
The Crossroads aren't potted but Jim apparently does do something to...
Take a listen to the great Suffy Walden of Stray Dog here! (Not Stray!)
He was using Thor amps, which was Terry Marshall's company after he left Marshall amps. The tone here is killer. Does anyone know anything about Thor amps or have any direct experience?
Re: Greg Martin reissue or inspired by model.
Check this out guys. Apologies if already posted -
(I had posted this in the Historic section originally but don't think anyone noticed it).
I watched a recent vid on YT of the guy from V Picks demonstrating the difference in tone using a heavier pick. Very interesting and I could hear a difference.
I normally use Dunlop 1.14mm picks but decided to try some Dunlop 2mm picks... wow, very noticeable difference in tone. Bigger, rounder...
Hi Joe, you recently tweeted a shot of one of your pedal boards and it appeared to have a new signature mxr pedal on there. Are you allowed to give us the low down? Don't worry if its top secret at this stage!
So, I've had a Marshall Power Brake since the early 90s when they were launched. Roughly 2 years ago I switched to using a hot-plate clone. Last night at rehearsal I thought I'd check out the Marshall Power Brake again. Sounded great! To be clear I don't attenuate down to bedroom levels, just...
Sick of my Vox 847. It's so noisy I can't use it. It's the 2nd one I've had and both have suffered with this. Spraying it with switch cleaner no longer works.
So I've decided, time to move on. I love the tone of vintage wahs. Tone wise the sound I shoot for is in the Gary Moore / Bonamassa mode...
