I needed a bit of time away after that last round. I've put the results at the bottom of this post. Jimmy, I was thinking of something you said, actually, when I said that “everything was starting to sound the same,” to the effect that you sound like you, whatever rig you play through, but that some rigs make it easier than others. When I said that that (everything sounding the same) was kind of the point in this round, I only meant that I was trying to EQ and set the other controls on each amp with a similar goal, tone-wise and feel-wise, in mind. While I can hear differences between the tracks, listening to them now, they are for the most part more similar than different (or more similar than I'd have expected). When I posted them, though, everything really was beginning to blur together for me. I was kind of bummed. I guess it's encouraging (per your comment, AstroSonic) to know that, given a little time and attention, you can get to a similar place (probably many similar places) with any of these pieces. The dark side of that, I think, at least as I arrived at it in these clips, is that I've homogenized many of their differences. Maybe that's not the right word... There's an area of overlap (insert Venn diagram) between all of these amps. I let me my focus pretty much narrow to that. There are places you can get with any of them, but there are places, for instance, that Monique can go that the GBE can't and vice-versa, and there are things that come more naturally to one amp than another, certain directions that the different amps seem to want to lead you. I'll stop there, before I wander too far afield. After I took some time away from clip-making (or playing with that in the back of my mind) and came back to the pres, I found myself EQing them differently than before – and differently from each other. When I'm interested in an amp, I'll listen to every clip of it I can find. Sometimes they tell me a lot. Sometimes, not so much. (And I suppose they could be misleading sometimes, like specs or internet opinions when you don't know how the writer's assumptions and criteria line up with yours.) I'm not necessarily listening for someone to cop the exact tone I have in mind, but listening to see if there's something in that tone that I can use in mine. That might only make sense to me, but I stand by it. Anyway, I hope these have been of some use to folks. I think I learned something, making them (time will tell!). I appreciate you all listening and appreciate very much the feedback and helpful insights along the way. Answers are below (unless otherwise noted, everything is set as in the photos). . . . . . . . . . . . . . A – Demeter 201 B – Direct to Interface C – GBE 1200, FET channel D – Zephyr, mid boost engaged (high and low boosts also engaged) E – Monique (Sensitivity knob pulled out, which is how I run it almost exclusively) F – Walkabout, EQed a bit “leaner” than pictured (bass at noon, a little more treble) G – Zephyr, no mid boost (but high and low engaged) H – GBE 1200, TUBE channel I – Walkabout, EQed as pictured.
