I get questions about these units on YouTube from time to time, and one guy asked if I could compare the same settings on both units, and a clip of the PDI-03 as a DI into some impulses with just my Engl head into it. Challenge accepted! Since I have a month off work, I'm happy to get stuck into...
More Youtube spam - I dug the Custom 69 and Texas Special combo, but I really liked the Area 61 when I had that in the neck slot of my Strat so I grabbed an Area 67, as thatr combo was pretty comparable to the Fender pickups I had in currently.
First impressions - the Fenders have a bit more of...
Following up from this thread...
A week or so back I ordered an Area '61 to try in the neck position of my Strat. I finally got the balls to try to install it today, and amazingly, didn't fuck anything up, OR burn myself. Thanks to Chris and Max for pep talks while I wired.

Even if you don't care about the gear, it's worth checking out just for the extremely fucking cool sound clip.
This is a comparison clip of the Bare Knuckle Nailbomb and Aftermath bridge pickups playing through a high-gain sound. The guitar used is my burl-top Blackmachine B2, and everything other than the pickups are kept the same between the clips...
