Flogging sweet tones on a budget

Post: # 1280679Post Freethenoise »

I've reviewed an awful lot of boutique stuff lately. I figured I'd try see what I could conjure up with some cheaper stuff so I don't spoil myself with more $200-$300 overdrive pedals and the sort.

All the guitar tracks were recorded from my Roland Cube 40XL that I've actually been using as a vocal amp at rehearsals. I used a cheap Artist Grungemaster with even cheaper GFS Goldfoil pickups in it.

The bass was recorded direct in with TSE Audio's BSE VST.

The drums were from EZDrummer.

All the sounds were mixed and mastered on Reaper.

That's the funniest guitar model name.

Did you like the stock Wilkinson P90s?

They weren't bad, but they definitely weren't great. They were overly hot and the pair I had were really hummy.

The Goldfoils are much lower output and much, much quieter.
