    Very cool.
    That guitar is making a big sence to the sound. I would never get that tone out of my SG copy with Guitar Rig 4. The Gretsch got something that really colours the sound.

      At least not with the humbuckers … The Filtertron is really “singlecoilish” never heard that before, but it gives the sound that little extra (is THAT maybe “that great Gretsch Sound”??) xDxD

    Is that a TVJones Filtertron ? Or the recent Gretsch Humbucker?
    Great tone and playing.

    Another great one. Just love your playing style.
    And regarding the strings, yeah, I changed mine also today and now I know the old ones did sound like a package cord on a yoghurt cup, hehe ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thats it dude! The before-after sound after string changing is outstanding … I asked myself how I could play with (“just”) 1-month old strings xD

        Yes, same here. Mine were also about 4 weeks old.
        I’ve read somewhere that the strings should be changed after circa 20-40 hours of playing depending on the playing style. Maybe we should just halve the string changing interval ๐Ÿ™‚

            Hehe, well, even for me and my poor playing (trying to get the Highway to Hell basics right these days) it’s a big difference with new strings on. So I think for a pro it must be a really huge difference.
            As far as I remember, Ang and Mal have new strings at every gig.
            And my local dealer here gives me a discount If I buy 10 packs at one time ๐Ÿ™‚

        Anytime. It’s even great to watch you playing, you’re flying along with the music. Very, very Malcolm-style ๐Ÿ™‚

    So, this is just a quick one to test the sound with Guitar Rig 4 … I’m quite happy, but still some room for tonal improvements … little to much trebble on either the Amp or the cabinet .. a neverending story^^

    An I now know the holy secret of Malcolms tone: new strings!! lol^^

      Nice cover!
      Yes, about strings, seems to me not only it sounds better, but they’re more comfortable to fret, bend, slide, etc, and that contributes even if it’s just a bit to a better overall quality.
