Smitty Meets the Dunes!

Smitty Meets the Dunes!

“Put a little hair on the dog here for ya!”

The insurmountable Smitty meets the Dunes! 📠🎸

Dunes is an overdrive from our friends at EarthQuaker Devices, and wow does it sound good! In this video, we’re recording the Dunes with a PRS S2 Custom 24 through a 70s Fender Twin with a SM57 on each cone (one SM57, one Beta 57A). Each mic has a totally different response and color, I did some EQ shifts and compressors in post to make it “one big sound” 🔊

Fender Mustang GT Series

Fender’s new Mustang GT amplifiers are *excellent* digital modeling combos. They are extremely easy to use, offer detailed tone settings, and are extremely lightweight.

We have all three models in stock:

  • Mustang GT 40 for $249
  • Mustang GT 100 for $399
  • Mustang GT 200 for $599

Come into Music 6000 and give these amps a try — they are surprisingly great sounding. The models are good enough to trick you into thinking it’s a tube amp. Very well done!

The best part of the GT 100 & 200 is the stereo XLR out on the back. Wonderful DI system, sound amazing direct. We used a Mustang GT on this video:

That despicable Smitty is at it again — this time it sounds like he’s breaking our vintage Harmony H303A! Just kidding — this amp rocks!

We’ve used three silly effects pedals: Boss DS-1, EQD Sea Machine, and EQD Ghost Echo. Using a PRS SE 7-string model. Cascade Vin-Jet long-ribbon microphone on the amp 🎙Ā Bizarre tones, you get better performance with a Telecaster 😏

Louis showcases some vintage tones in this video!

We’re using a 60s Harmony Model H303A tube combo, just a 6″ speaker šŸ˜‰ 12 o’clock is where we put the amp.

Louis is playing a Fender American Professional Telecaster, going through a Tech 21 Comptortion in the beginning of the video, then a EarthQuaker Dispatch Master for slapback! Shure SM57 mic’ing it 🎤
