New soundclips added!

My good friend and tame shredmaster Rich Russell did some great soundclips for me.

Superfly soundclip by Rich Russell

Murder One soundclip by Rich Russell

Rich used a USA Fender Telecaster. The amps were driving a Marshall 1936 2×12. No other effects except a little SHO boost for the ‘shredding’ parts, and a touch of reverb. Microphone was a Shure SM58.

Thermionic Overdrive soundclip by Rich Russell

The Thermionic soundclips was recorded directly into a Valve Junior set to clean, all the drive you hear is coming from the Thermionic. Rich used a USA Fender Telecaster. No other effects except a touch of reverb. Microphone was a Shure SM58.
