Good news!!I love the DMs.
Cool !!!Being GuitarSIAM, it must be Thai.I've been expecting this for over 2 years now.A friend of mine who lives in NW USA has been collaborating with "Mr DM" designing some exciting new tube amps for the DM amps line relaunch.He's (understandably) pissed off by DM's later decision of playing it safe and only reissuing old models.
Wow! That reviewer guy has great touch on the instrument; I'd say that about 98% of the coolness of that review is in the guy's hands.
Although that new DM combo may well be a great-sounding amp anyway. That strat copy sounds pretty nice to me also!
>>PhAtt Phil says,, No not really?How about,, Just inteligent limiting of high frequency response,, always sounds smooth. Listen very carefully, (if you have that freq thing on your media player look at the response on the spectrum analizer).All that sound is 90% under 1kHz response. (A good mixdown working also)Go listen to Carlos Santana?? same thing,,, heavy supession of hi freq ALWAYS works wonders for slick smooth funk Blues.The rest is just practice and learning riffs. >> FWIW,,, I personally use a cheap crappy $150 copy Strat,, complete with the cheapest PU's that can be purchased. LOW GAIN!!!!!Oh and Yes I've got some genuine Fender PU's to A/B test it,, sos I DO know what I'm talkin about.90% of great tone Is In The electronics (Amplifier tricks) not the PU's,,,The more you limit the bandwidth the better it will sound,,, and I'm yet to be proved wrong.
And what are the benefits of such a design?Reliability?Ensuring that the power amp just deals with power, thus leaving all the "tone making" function to the preamp (and the speaker, of course)?Any thoughts?
