This albums sound like it's going to be ridiculous.
I have very high hopes for this album and since Portnoy gets to write it will be quite a show.
I didn't really get too pumped for his playing on Petrucci's solo album, it sounded restricted since he didn't necessarily write.
Petrucci at SEGA Music Awards (Solo tunes w/Full Band & Allman Bros. Cover with Rena)
This is a very cool video with Petrucci going to the SEGA Music Awards.
He plays "Glasgow Kiss" & "Lost Without You" with a full house band and at the end him and his wife cover "Jessica."
Super High Quality...
So for the longest time my Dad has wanted a Marshall JCM800 that sounded like Van Halen, Alice in Chains, Lynch, Whitesnake or whatever tone he was seeking out with those guys using Marshalls.
I told him for years the way those guys got those tones was through Modded Marshalls and not a stock...
At least for me and I have not been pleased with their last few albums but this one takes the cake.
It literally sounds like the new form of Dream Theater mixed a touch of Awake and Petrucci's lead tone in Liquid Tension Experiment.
They try some new things vocally that I think James hits the...
I love this new Dream Theater song and they have not released a new song in a while where I felt in love.
However, this is very SDOT, Ocatavarium. Everything sounds great and Petrucci's solo is glorious. So good.
His best solo out of all the ones recently.
Labrie's vocals are spot-on, reminds...
Last night was the last show of the entire "The Astonishing Live" Tour.
We were settled into a lovely-cozy-modern theater in Durham, NC.
I've waited seven years to see this band because that was the last time they came to NC (Progressive Nation Tour 2009).
I was beyond excited to finally see...
I apologize guys... I've been meaning to celebrate some new gear with you all sooner!
However, I just haven't had the time and wanted to have footage before sharing.
Without any further, I present the MESA:Boogie Mark V and the EBMM JPX LTD.
Here's some video footage:
Something weird is going...
So this some of the coolest vids I have seen in a while on the Tube.
MI is throwing full past clinic videos of guitarist they featured:
Coolest One right Now: One with John Petrucci from 1998. Magical. He's using the Tri-Axis and it sounds glorious!
PG Clinic Old & New
Finally some serious possible competition against the Mini Rectifier. I want a Road King so I might switch to the Mini Mark rather than the Mini Rec depending on how much I like it (but it'll take a lot for me to switch :lol:). Also mid-boost on ch. 1 and the built-in cab clone are interesting...
So I've seen similar threads to this before, I'm sure you guys probably have too, so I apologize if this sounds familiar. Anyway, in your experience, how does the DM Crunch Lab/ Liquifire combo sound in a Les Paul-style guitar?
I've heard from a couple of sources that they sound too compressed...
Brief & Accurate Description of gear/guitar:EBMM JP6 Stealth Black W/piezo and shield inlays.
Modifications (if any):Bare Knuckle painkiller in bridge (I still have crunch lab & can put back in upon request)
Accessories (hardshell case etc):Hardshell MM JP6 case
Location (City,State or...
Go to DiMarzio's website and look for the Crunch Lab and Liquifire pickups. Yes they do have six and seven string versions. They are basically tweaked versions of the D-Sonic and Air Norton.
