AD30 clips to give you a vague idea of what it can do. Open-backed 1999 AD30R combo with Vintage 30 speakers. '90 G&L ASAT used (maple neck, alder body, large MFD pickups). Two overdrive pedals are Banzai Fireball II dual overdrive, and a Maxon OD-808 overdrive. Delay is Guyatone MD3. Mic is a Red5 RVD20 (bog standard dynamic mic) a couple of inches away from the grille, couple of inches from the centre of the cone, and about 30 degrees offset. Recorded through a tiny Behringer UB802 desk into a Soundblaster 5.1 live card, using Magix audio studio.

Everything was recorded as a .wav file and converted to .mp3 using a clever little free program called "Switch." Do a search on, or on Google, and you'll come up with it. Quick & very easy. I like it!

Thanks to LeonC for hosting them...

Gain about 75%, master 20%, bass 75%, mid 50%, treble 65%. Just running through bridge, neck, and middle settings on the ASAT, rolling back the tone on each one. No pedals on this clip.

AD30 clean - running through the pickup settings from bridge to neck. Gain 25%, master 50%, everything else same.

AD30 clean settings plus overdrive pedals. First the Banzai Fireball II, then the Maxon OD-808. Bridge then neck pickup.

Fireball left on my regular settings: internal trim pots maxed to give me most the most trebley, scooped sound possible. External tone fully clockwise, main volume, boost volume & overdrive level at 45%. Switch in uncompressed mode.

OD-808 running from gain settings at 75%, balance at 30%, tone at 25% my normal setting), to balance at 75% and tone at 75%. Then repeated but with gain at 25% instead.

AD30 dirty settings - gain 75%. Then using the overdrive pedals as in clip 3, except leaving the OD-808 on my normal settings. About 2:30 mins in, I kick on both pedals, then drop the tone and possibly the OD-808.Can't remember!

AD30 dirty settings, neck pickup with MD3 delay. Using Fireball II first stomp only, then kick in the OD-808 when I go off on a random.

Also, some crunchier ones with a Gordon Smith GS1, Bareknuckle Cold Sweat humbucker in the bridge, and my G&L Comanche. Look to the "Bareknuckle" and "Comanche" downloads at...

Description of settings etc is here...

G(sus) saves

Orange AD15, Matamp 1224, Fender 'JD' Tele, G&L ASAT, Duesenberg Starplayer TV, Eggle Kanuga, Avalon D25, Warwick FNA Jazzman, Eden Nemesis / Bergantino EX112S, Eastman MD305 & other stuff...

Hi guys, been REAL busy lately, but I _do_ have new clips!!

We recorded practice the other week, and I got a rough mix. (no overdubs, etc). I wish our sound guy would have EQ'd the guitar a little bit better, but it is 100% dry--no post EQ--other than he ran some sort of slight stereo delay to spatialize it in the mix. I would have prefered to run the amp w/less treble, but our sound guy wanted it that way (treble maxed).

Guitar: Anderson w/maple neck, maple top over hollow ash, duncan custom pickup

Amp: Orange rockerverb 50
Bass: 2:00
Middle: 1:30
Treble: MAXED (ack!)
Gain: 2:30

FX: old Rocktron Intellifex in the loop used for delay/boost on leads, and slight chorus on rythms.

Cab: Bogner 4x12 w/V30's

Mic: Beta 57, straight on, but just where the cone meets the rest of the speaker. (right at that little seam)

There are definitely some mistakes in there, esp the middle parts on the two U2 songs :)

Red Hot Chili Peppers - "Suck My Kiss" ... ss_mp3.mp3

Rage Against the Machine - "Killing in the Name of" ... Bounce.mp3

U2 - "I Will Follow" and "Vertigo" ... Splice.mp3 ... Bounce.mp3

Alice in Chains - "Would?"

Pearl Jam - "Jeremy" and "Evenflow" ... Bounce.mp3

yeah you guys can hear my guitar tone on my bands website...

those 3 songs were recorded with a mesa/boogie subway rocket combo and in about 5 days you will be hearing a lot of different Orange amps for the guitar tracks of our new songs...which are completely different from the ones on there now...oh and the songs on there now are a home recording...the new ones are off our 1st in studio debut...

Someone wanted to hear some Hendrix on a Rockerverb. No problemo.

Pardon various false starts and clams. Listen for the tone.

<b>Castles Made of Sand</b>

<b>Wait Until Tomorrow/Wind Cries Mary</b>

<b>Spanish Castle Magic</b>

All clips with my Strat-o-parts-caster (mostly Warmoth). Played through my Rockerverb 50 into my custom 4x12 with old G12H30s. Recorded wtih a Shure SM57, natch!

Original instrumental song, called Bloom, that I created around the end of last year. Guitar is a Guild Bluesbird played through my Rockerverb 50 combo.

I almost forgot...Here's a few of my band. A lot of people tell us we give them 'what the hell is going on?' syndrome...but hopefully it'll display what the OR-80 sounds like recorded...though IMHO, the dude who mastered this stuff squashed the mids out way too much.

Fender Strat straight into an OTR 80 combo: Twice, (once a sort of punky sound - FAC toward the left, gain 2 o clock, bridge pick-up, the second, something a bit more ballsy - fac towards the right neck pick-up) this is an unmastered monitor mix and i'm going to cheakily send you to the BBC as i don't think the MP3s are working on our webby. (It's the Junglists at the top btw...)

Lots of AD30TC Combo clips here:

The filenames are somewhat self-explanatory, at least for finnish users. :)

P.S. Please normalize your sound clips to the maximum possible volume level right before clipping.

Yet another in a never-ending stream of Rockerverb clips. 8)

I musta took the wrong pills!

Warmoth Strat with WCR SR pickups into a 4x12 with old G12H30s. Replifex in the loop for delay. BlackBox Oxygen in front for a little subtle compression and gain boost. Shure SM57 in front of the amp, slightly off center on one of the speakers.

Just a quick recording of my Rockerverb 50. Crappy mic right into soundcard, kinda muddy, but you get the idea. I might get some rack recording gear later but, for now this will do.
