"I'm not exactly sure of 'my sound'. I like a diversity. I like clean or messy. Not sure what I like,
but I do know it when I hear it. I don't like over-drive tones that are too harsh. I wish I had a nice acoustic guitar... It's a great instrument…"

"Beautiful guitar Ray! I Love the color!
Well said Doug! Mark Knopfler once said in an MC video: "a pick (meaning, attack, feel, soul, etc.) is actually the biggest amplifier that there is ..".
Greetings from Mexico City to you all!
Bruno."

"Beautiful, Ray. ...I think most of my 'tone' comes from my fingers.  I use GHS boomers- 09's. My first Strat was like back in '77. Man, that was a (literally) heavy guitar. I usually go for maple fretboards. I like the ebony too. I also love my many…"

"Wow Rob! You are the most informed opinion I've ever come across this and other several forums! Thanx so much for sharing! As obvious as it may seem, we never get to consider stepping a couple of steps back on the pickups output and cranking a bit…"

"Doug, the more I think about it, just remember that ebony is a very bright tone wood, probably brighter than Maple - not sure what the padouk does to the equation.   You might want to select a pickup that is balance for Maple necks, or if you think…"

"hi Bruno, thanks for your kind comments.   A lot of people like Texas Specials, but they are fairly HOT pickups, i.e. loud output.  A louder pickup will make the high end more loud, so if you don't like the sound of the pickup, having a loud output…"

"Hi Doug, glad you enjoyed the post.   Your Strat neck seems really interesting- haven't tried Padouk yet.  An ebony fingerboard will make the guitar brighter, so if treble is bothering you on the lead pickup, a pickup swap may be in order.  If your…"

"Excellent post! Thanks. I own a Deluxe Players Strat MIM. I replaced the neck with a Warmouth padouk neck with an ebony fingerboard. It has a push-button that enables the use of all three pickups at once or even just the neck and bridge pickups. To…"

Chris Alpiar replied to Robert Throckmorton's discussion Garritan Purchases Giga Technology Assets From TASCAM
"well Giga is not sounds, it is a technology, Giga was the industry standard for large orchestral compositions because of how it was set up to really take over a PC and made loading many instrument samples a possibility. The lack of support by TEAC…"

Adrian Allan replied to Robert Throckmorton's discussion Garritan Purchases Giga Technology Assets From TASCAM
"What I don't get about this partnership is the fact that Garritan have a reputation for being at the low end of VST samples - the sort of stuff used by notation packages like Sibelius, but not for the serious film composers. However, from what I…"
