  1. My brother’s into amateur boxing, I tried to convince him to have Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick!
  2. It’s still a bassline in my not-so-humble opinion even though it’s played on a guitar through an octave down. A bassline doesn’t need to be played on a bass, it could be anything in the lower register, even a piano. Yes it’s the main hook... But still a bassline! 🤥🥊
  3. In what way? All Tech21 pedals have a pretty good clean buffer in my experience, but any buffered non-true-bypass pedal will have the effect of brightening your tone slightly with a passive bass as it counters the signal loss you would otherwise get. One issue I remember having though is that the bypass signal distorted a bit when the gain was cranked, which was. a bit weird but didn’t affect ‘normal’ settings.
  4. The Diabolik sounds better to me without a buffer in front of it, but I’d expect putting the OC-2 after would upset the tracking a bit. Not always the case with fuzz/drive though, so worth trying if you haven’t already!
  5. These are great, you get a hard case and a mic clip included in the price too.
  6. Yes, you can adjust the crossover points on the amp so that you can have the distortion and/or clean channel full range if you want to.
  7. Maybe with the X7 / X Ultra, but then again they haven't baked that into an amp yet! The DP3X or Dug amp definitely seems the best option for that tone though unless you want to get creative with crossovers/compressors/amps in a Helix or similar.
  8. And if they do, give it a power amp with more ‘heft’ than the VT500 and ensure the master volume can be adjusted without affecting the DI level!
  9. Agree with the BDI21 recommendation as a solid starting point! Also the Zoom B1on / B3n do a pretty damn good emulation of a Sansamp BDDI and Darkglass B7K. For studio use you can record dry and do everything via plugins like Helix Native (which has a free trial!), but a common trick for heavier music is to mix a clean lowpassed compressed signal with a highpassed distorted signal. The Tech21 DP3X and Darkglass X7 can do this trick in one pedal.
  10. If looking at the Billy Sheehan one, avoid the original version and go straight for the Deluxe. The dirt channel is out of phase with the clean so it sounds weird and drops low end when blended unless you put another phase inverting pedal in the fx loop. The Deluxe version fixes this with a phase switch.
  11. That's a good thing for a PJ. Most off-the-shelf ones I've tried out didn't sound that great with both pickups on, totally different to my Yamaha BB which has a monstrously loud J pickup.
  12. You can also connect something like a Radial JDI or Darkglass Elements in parallel with the speaker cab to capture the additional character that the power tubes provide with the addition of a speaker sim.

    Setting the attack/decay knobs is crucial with these and others like it such as the Meatball. If attack is slow but decay is fast, it'll never sweep. If attack is fast but decay too slow, it'll stay wide open most of the time.
