    10 Celestion speakers comparison (110 seconds)

    The Hempback indeed looks like a Lynchback and is also 50 watt, but from what I've heard of it, it definitely sounds different. They're quite hard to get as well, not in stock in any shop that I've seen so far.

    10 Celestion speakers comparison (110 seconds)

    Unfortunately they don't sell the Lynchbacks anymore. Actually it's the fattest sounding speaker I own. Definitely one of my favourites.

    10 Celestion speakers comparison (110 seconds)

    I actually never used a greenback in my life :D but it is definitely on my GAS list.

    10 Celestion speakers comparison (110 seconds)

    I made a comparison video of 10 Celestion speakers. The same riff, but 10 different speakers. I glued the riffs after eachother so you can easily hear the differences. Also bass guitar + drums backed down in the mix. Which one is your favourite?

    10 Celestion speakers comparison video (high gain)

    Celestion K-100 (clean, crunch and high gain demo)

    Did it come stock with that K100 + V30 configuration? Always heard great things of Zilla cabs, but never used one in real life. How is it compared to for example a mesa OS cab?

    Celestion K-100 (clean, crunch and high gain demo)

    The K-100 is a different voiced speaker than most other Celestions. I like the warmth of this speaker, but if you mic it too much to the center it also has a weird hiss which I dislike. This speaker reminds me a bit of a T-75 but a totally different sound. The T-75 has great warmth too and some...

    Backing track to practice all modes in C major (epic orchestra)

    You split everything and than tell what it is, but the whole piece on its own is still clearly a C major backing track. Actually the F and B in the first part can be considered as half cadences that want to resolve to C, but instead go back to D minor (dorian). (they lean towards a IV-I and a...

    My guitar collection shown in a video

    Thanks! Tried the left leg thing too, but I guess the guitar is just a little bit too big. I'm half human/half midget, so that might also be the problem.

    My guitar collection shown in a video

    Hi all, I just made a video of my whole guitar collection just for fun and to practice speaking English in front of a camera. There are a few 7 strings in there too. Anyway, just a lighthearted video, nothing too serious. If you got any questions regarding some of my guitars, feel free to ask...

    EMG 60A demonstration (+comparison with ceramic EMG 60)

    I'm a fan of the (ceramic) EMG 60 in the neck position. Bridge position is nice too, but maybe a bit too smooth, I'd rather choose an 81 or 57 in the bridge. I bought the Alnico version (EMG 60A), which is ofcourse a bit darker sounding. Happily surprised about it, it has that 60 smoothness but...

    EMG 57 vs EMG 81 comparison (high gain)

    I'm definitely interested as well in the Fishman classics, never tried any of them.

    EMG 57 vs EMG 81 comparison (high gain)

    I was very interested in Fishmans when they started to become popular and they're definitely nice sounding pickups, but I still prefer my EMG's over them. Not a huge difference, but still enough to prefer one brand over the other. Most Fishmans always sound a bit too scooped and bright. It's...

    EMG 57 vs EMG 81 comparison (high gain)

    Well, the splitted 81 is not bad, but it's hard to describe what it actually is what I don't really like about it. For example I own a Strandberg Sälen which is a Telecaster-ish guitar and those passive Suhr single coils are just way better than that splitted EMG. But it's not that the EMG gets...

    EMG 57 vs EMG 81 comparison (high gain)

    For bridge position I definitely like the 57 and 81 the most. How do you use the TW, do you use it in combination with the 66 TW and use a switch or pullable pot to switch to the single coilish mode? I actually have a 81TW currently installed in the neck position of one of my guitars. It's a...

    EMG 57 vs EMG 81 comparison (high gain)

    Thanks! I Appreciate it. I'm actually going to upload a small review of the EMG60A (alnico version) soon, which is quite an interesting pickup too.

    Backing track to practice all modes in C major (epic orchestra)

    So, lots of metal players here who might not be that much into improvisation than for example jazz players, but anyway I'd still like to share this backing track I made. It's not too complicated and I think it's great for people starting out to play over changes. In other words: practicing...

    :offtopic: By the way, that's a nice looking white mesa half stack in your profile picture, kid :metal: is that custom ordered?

    10 famous songs played backwards for fun (video)

    Hi all, I had this idea for a few months now and thought well... It's time to create this. We all heard records played back in reverse with those 'devil' messages, but I had the idea to actually play some famous songs and see if you can recognize them. For variation I did a few on guitar, keys...
