08 Oct AC/DC – Love Hungry Man (tone sample and settings)

Hi,

First of all, I’d like to introduce myself since this is my first post here on solodallas.com as a contributor. :)

My name is Adam, I’m 18, and I’m a huge classic rock fan and player from Hungary. I’ve been playing for quite a few years now, and I plan to do this for a living. My all-time favorite is (of course) AC/DC, but I also like lots of other classic rock bands/guys such as Led Zeppelin, Van Halen, Guns n’ Roses, Free, The Who, Tom Petty, Eric Clapton, Jimi Hendrix etc. I could go on for about a page more, but let’s get to the interesting part, shall we? :)

10 Nov AC/DC’s “If You Want Blood (You’ve Got It)” New Series

Well, with the arrival of the Aracom PRX150 DAG (Power Attenuator) I can finally reach new heights. Why? Because this is a REAL attenuator, like I’ve never owned before (review coming soon). This attenuator – a passive one – lets me crank properly any amplifier power section – included the ones of MVs amps, such a 2203 or a 2204, as in the case with this video – and obtain finally proper sound. I know, I seem a bit too revolutionary, but please listen for yourself.
