New Quad Owner *with vid*

Post by skoora » Fri Feb 08, 2019 9:46 pm

Had a studio pre about 5 years ago and kind of wanted one again but wanted to try a quad. Well here it is. Ch 1 sounds a fair bit "bigger" than Ch 2. Clean or dirty. Just has more girth. No idea if this thing has been modded or not. I had it open when I first got it to make sure the tubes shipped OK and it looked fairly original inside. Really digging it so far. CH 1 clean gets an awesome breakup tone with the gain all the way up. Very AC/DC like but slightly cleaner. The Lead channel also responds to volume roll-off great. Get a great chimey breakup tone with the volume down on the guitar. Did a quick vid with my phone just on Lead 1. Using my MKV for power. Gibson 80's V with Wolfetone Marshallheads

Sounds bad @$$
The fact that Stephen appears from nowhere, is sentenced to death in an emotional public trial without anyone interfering at all and is then altogether forgotten as if nothing happened, is already suspicious.

Yeah, I dig it. gotta admit I haven't spent much time on CH 2 as CH 1 is so good. Even though CH2 has a little more gain it sounds smaller than CH 1. Mind you, I have no idea if somebody in the past tried mod's etc.

Saw one in Tacoma not long ago. Don't see many of them around. Just awesome.
