Stiletto Ace - tone for days

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N189KP0GwRU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hh5iiatV83c Different styles, songs, guitars.... and straight up Ace tone, sounding incredible. Tight gain on the Gary Moore tune, Fluid Drive on the Vai tune. I'll never understand why this amp wasn't more warmly received....

Re: Stiletto Metal Attempt. :)

Very cool tone. From one Stiletto user to another! Stilettos kick all kinds of ass - I'm always surprised that people are "surprised" by the tones coming out of the Stiletto...

Peace

Re: % of tone - hands vs. rig.

I agree with some of the previous posters (and have answered this question the same way for years) that a players STYLE comes from the head heart and hands... the notes you play, the nuances, vibrato, attack...all of these things are elements of playing style that don't deviate with the equipment.

Re: what speakers suit the stiletto stage 2 the best?

no balls or bass? I don't want to come off harsh...but either your amp is defective or you just aren't dialing it in correctly... I have the ace 50 watt combo, and I've had to dial the bass back (I've got it at about 1:00) because every time I played the bottom strings or palm muted it peaked out th...

This was played at pretty low volumes, and yet the tone was full and not harsh at all. Fluid drive channel with the gain at about 1:00.

love my stiletto...too bad they are misunderstood...

How many times have you read "they are too bright? They are like an icepick in the ears???" I'd like to amend those statements..... "When I dime all the tone controls like Eddie Van Halen says he does and because I don't know any better, its like an icepick in the ears...." My Ace sounds fantastic w...

Re: Modes

Without having to modify the amp, here is the solution I've been using to get more sounds... I have found that this amp takes pedals unbelieveably well! I'm using the fat clean in channel one in conjunction with a BB Preamp, a MI Audio Crunch box, and a MI Audio Tube zone. I can go from an awesome p...

Re: Right then...

I've only had my Deuce Stage 2 for 3 days now...and haven't had it out to a gig or even up to volume as I have family visiting... but even at low volume I've run the amp through all the modes and it sounds great! Mic'd it up...recorded some sound samples...none of the over the top brightness people ...
