I never really understood the point of those Sonic Maximizers. Do they do anything other than add a ridiculously large amount of low end? I don't think I've ever seen a guitarist live that used one and had great tone.

I am not exactly sure what they do. I think they boost the ultra low frequencies and boost and delay the extreme high frequencies. Either way, I personally like the sound it gives to my amp. Although, I haven't tried it in a full band situation. It could be the complete opposite there.

it's just another type of eq basically. I don't like them anymore cause of the "scooped mids" it added to my tone. The reason why I regret buying it isn't cause of the sound (I liked it at first), I just don't see the point in having 2 of them. I suppose it would be cool if the other guitar player used the other side of it, but if not then what's the point? It's a useless channel and I should have just gotten the old ones where it was just one and $100 cheaper.

I like the sonic maximizer. I got it for less than $100 so I figured what the hell. It cleans up the sound a bit IMO and does add low end, but on the 2120 I add more to the mids. I'm personally liking the sound I'm getting out of it. I'll see how it sounds recorded next week. So far it has sounded great for me live. For now I'm keeping it. As time goes on and I mess with different sounds and amps and what not it may leave my setup.

Please post some samples of your recording. I'd be curious to hear the tone.

We enter the studio Sunday to record our part of the Torsofuck/Cumbeast split, so I should have samples by end of next week.
Mind you I'm still learning the ins and outs of the 2120 (and settling on a tone I like, which changes often) and I'm no where near advanced with guitar/guitar rigs like you and some others on here. Feedback will of course be appreciated.

I'm in Defleshuary. It's a 4 way split, Torsofuck/Cumbeast/Defleshuary/Decrepit Womb. I guess I should have worded it Defleshuary's part of a split with Torsofuck, Cumbeast, and Decrepit Womb.

Really? Then tell them to bring back CR! One of the fucking best bands ever! They only played Lancaster, PA like one time and for some reason I wasn't able to go so I never saw em. I miss that band.


Anyway, we have new songs up on our myspace (click the fucker in my signature.) The rig I posted was used by me and the other guitarist to track for it, he obviously used a different guitar than mine.

i like it a lot. it has a great feal to it. only flaw i found with it is playing while standing is hard to get used to cause of the weight, but then again you get used to it. and ive always hated ibanez tremelos......but yeah. its a very nice guitar.

Oh gotcha, though I hardly ever play standing up anyways haha. Hows the access to the upper frets? I know with the Kelly and Warrior bodies, sometimes the horn thing tends to get in the way when trying to play up around 22-24 frets. How about the Deactivators? I have a 7-string version in my Universe, but don't really know how I feel about it...

actually, i find it much easier playing on the upper frets. the body doesnt get in the way at all, infact makes room IMO.
