Les Sans Culottes has recently finished up tracking for our new album: "The Gods Have Thirst". I had been waiting for my new amp to arrive for the sessions, thank Science it showed up hours before 4 days of tracking madness was set to begin.
What amp you ask?
The Fender 68' deluxe reverb. I had wanted a 65' deluxe reverb for a long time, but the 68' won hands down in a side-by-side comparison. The 68' DR takes pedals much better than the 65' imo, especially the Custom channel, which is very Bassman-ish with a glassier top, and if you still crave the traditional deluxe reverb sound it can be obtained via the vintage channel. Also, the reverb and tremolo are useable in both channels. Brillant!
Yes, for the first time since 2007 my trusty Genz-Benz was left at home. Although there was a couple other amps involved (...one made of plastic?) I'd say 90% of the tracks are Deuxe Reverb. Even the convincing "Vai/Halen" tone for the solo in "what people do for money" was all Deluxe with help from an OKKO overdrive pushing a Fulltone OCD.
A big Thank You to Travis Harrison for capturing tone and always excreting great vibes, day after day, take after take. We can't wait to share the album with everyone.
