    Ive always loved the tone of the Marshall Bluesbreaker II pedal, and that has both an overdrive and boost on it. Do you think that would be a good pedal to get a ballsy boost out of an amp?

      Sorry to say I don’t know. Never used one.

        Same here. No experience with other panels beside the MXR.

    Hehe, very cool video. Better than mine. So you win too πŸ™‚ You really should shot some more, you can play and you know how to do it.
    Nice tone and nice gear. I especially like the solo. The tone is great, especially within the intro and the solo. Sometimes I think it could need some more lower mids, but I’m unsure.

    Mine is here: http://www.solodallas.net/highway-to-hell-partial-without-solo/

    Is that a Shure SM 57 and a condenser mic at your cab? Did you record with both mics in the video?

      Thank you Franz! πŸ™‚
      And you are correct. SM57 and the condenser is crappy MXL. That’s what the wash rag is wrapped around it for. My amp was overloading it so I provided a damper.
      Both were used. No post recording EQ, just reverb.

        I like the SM 57. It’s a classic, and as far as I know, AC/DC used them a lot, especially before BiB. Mine was also recorded with one.
        What’s that nice big pedal you are using there?
        I also did some test recordings with the MXR EQ pedal, can be found here: http://www.banane.at/media/mxrtest/
        Nothing special, just a first mid boost test.

          That is a Boss ME-70.
          It was my compromise against ammassing a bunch of single pedals. It gives me basically any effect I could want, from a wah to our needed “boost” for Angus.
          Classic Rock is my passion, which the Marshall can handle on it’s own, but I also play on upto Matallica stuff.

          (BTW full (somewhat) recording details are listed in the description if you watch the vid on Youtube.)

          Until later….Bed Time Here……;)

            Ah, I see. Yeah, I’m also (exclusively) into Classic Rock, mainly into AC/DC πŸ™‚

            Alright…working time here, later then πŸ™‚

                Hehe, Morgen, Fil! Yeah, its funny. I’m a lot into music history at the moment, reading biographies about Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, the Stones, etc. At the same time I’m listening to their music. That’s because I use to hear AC/DC almost all the time (never get bored of them) and want to have a look beyond my own nose now. With 40, very late, eh? πŸ™‚
                But (and most people call this narrow-minded and and I understand this) I don’t seem to like the other old classics or other music styles outside of AC/DC and a handful of Blues musicians like BB King, Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry and all the guys.
                Maybe it’s my ears, maybe it’s just that this simple, but special style is just made for me πŸ™‚
