    Hey guys!
    I tried googling whether or not the FNA Jazzman would be fitting in a metal setting, and couldn't find too many clips (besides TesseracTs first album, of course).
    Then I realized I had a friend who had one, I borrowed his, and ended up using it in my latest release.
    Anyway, just thought I'd share this with you guys, I believe the bass comes through the mix fairly well here!

    Constructive feedback is always appreciated!

    Your FNA sounds cool. Bit honky on the upper-mid (for my liking, but that's just personal pref). Digging the roomy snare too. Roomy drums need more love in heavier music.

    One thing I think is objectively not that great is the guitar tone. What are you using for him?
  3. Wow! That sounds toight! :) I hoped you stretched before and after that. Holy tendonitis!
    Great work man.
    Take Care,

    Sorry for the late reply!
    I used the POD HD300 with an Overdrive pedal in front for guitar tone on that one. I think I used way too much compression on this recording... :(

    Thanks for the positive feedback! It's not really that hard when you use a pick (I'm actually a guitarist)
