    Fellow TBers. I beg you for your support in my bands struggle to get to the #1 position on purevolume.com. My band's name is SHAFTER OUR PUREVOLUME PAGE and we're a struggling rock/pop band...and although I know many of you may or may not like the music, I ask you to support a fellow TBer and listen the songs on the site. Our objective is to get as many plays as possible so the more songs you listen to, the better off we'll be. In my opinion, although it is not the sole factor in my band being recognized, it will be helpful in our discovery. Thank you for your support and time.

    If you give me one of those MTD's you have for sale, I'll have me and my entire family sit in front of our PCs all day Thursday listening to the songs. :D

    With such a rave review, how could anyone say no?

    BTW, I really like the first track Pirates... getting to the rest as I have time... Very NFG'esque.

    What if I don't like your band? Do I still have to support you? Is supporting a punk band punk? Cause I'm so punk I don't even support myself.

    Ben, you are too funny man. If you don't like my band, then tough...you're going to listen to it if you like it or not. C'mon were both from the bay area, you gotta support local boys. :bassist:

    McHack, thank you so much for the compliment. Seriously. Pirates is one of my favorite tracks because I feel like the Drum and Bass really shine in that song. My albumn "when the stars align" is a good example of how various pre-amps sound recorded. I used the Aguilar DB659 for most of it and for a couple songs I used the Alembic F1-X and Euphonic Audio Iamp800. But McHack, thank you so much for the support.

    Jongor:

    I used my two Lakland 55-02's. I guess it depends on which song, but I used the Aguilar DB659 for the majority of the songs, then I used an Alembic F1-X and a Euphonic Audio Iamp800. I head back into the studio on Wednesday.
