I'll have a listen to the clip when I get home, although not strictly necessary after playing my BC Rich through it... fark I loved it, so much clarity, definition and punch, in fact I'm still waffling on about it to other guitar players at work... it is a thing of sonic beauty!

Sounds great with a G12H too - a lot of the early testing and voicing was done using a G12H.

I have already started putting aside money with the view to getting one made...now I just have to resist spending that money on guitars and other gas

Yeah if I wasn't getting married this year and spending all my spare cash on that, I would have asked Ryan there and then to make me one. However, as I loved it that much, I get the strangest feeling I'll be knocking on Ryan's door sometime next year with a fist full of cash... 8)

Thanks Willow!
Here are the links guys - enjoy! I'm guessing they show Ryan's explanation/demo of some of the different clipping options and also him showing how the lower gain input sounds (Unfortunately I can't watch any of them until I get home cos youtube is blocked at work) :( :(

Not at my work it ain't! Boom! Tasty, tasty amp (and nice chops from Ryan and DM) make me into a spewing raving GAS volcano. :crazy:

Darcy Perry with that 335

I turned up early to drop off drinks and ice with chilly bin. Then turned up again just after the "best blues jam ever" to play around on the cool gear of other forum members. Yes, I missed most of the fun due to the kids sporting commitments. Due to the crazy nature of the day, I almost forgot I was there... but I guess that photo is proof? :shock:

Thank you Grant for your usual awesomeness. 8)

It was great to catch up with some familiar faces and jam on one of Ryan's 5e3 builds with that 335. Apity I couldn't make the after drinks at the CnB. Perhaps next time.

Also, I have a flash venue lined-up in Tamahere, just off State Highway 1.

Its still sounded cool, the poor ole camera mic didn't stand a chance when the vol goes up tho :lol: :lol:
You can gauge that it has a rawness & grind thats great for rhythms, particularly when Ryan busted out the acca dacca.

Hey DM, did I catch the start of the Crue's On with the show 1:40? 8)

Ryan was playing the Acca Dacca stuff through the lower gain input. Plugging into that takes out the 3rd gain stage which leaves what is essentially a marshall plexi circuit (great for 70s rawk and also cleans up quite nicely). The 3rd gain stage is what takes it into that hot rodded JCM800 territory.(At least that's how Ryan explained it to me cos I'm a complete moron when it comes to this stuff!)

Nah just some stuff I made up when trying to come up with some generic hair metal palm muted triad licks... so not entirely surprising if it sounds like Crue or similar.
In my defence, I was left unsupervised...

I heard this story on the radio, make of it what you will:

So this guy's starting his first week of being a prison officer in Auckland, and they're encouraged to start building a bit of a raaport with the inmates, make it a bit easier to deal with them. He's walking through the prison kitchen chatting to the inmates, and he comes up to a guy chopping up vegetables. "You cutting up some swedes mate", says he. Stony silence from the inmate. Apparently it was David Tamahere.
