I upped my old workout regime after not doing it for two weeks and was able to cope :D

Might buy myself a weight bench soon and take henching up up a notch.

JCM800 is something I thought was the preserve of people wanting a classic rock tone but I might be wrong.

Anyway, here's a vidya of me playing through all the channels, starting with the cleanest to the dirtiest. Each of the 4 channels has 3 different voicings and I've made links to where each one starts. Probably not as good as it would sound if really cranked (and if I was in a better state when I was playing).


Cool demo :yes: sounds pretty versatile like you say.

JCM800 is a full on monster of high gain, its an ace amp. Wouldn't say it has the clarity of some of the other high end high gain heads, but it's fat and clear as hell.

What were you using to record with?

Well that's that done and out the way with. Now to finally forget about those guys. Tax man had a bit of a party on it but it should keep me in this country for a couple more months. :yes: Getting the forms together for a tax rebate from the United Kingdom sorted out for tomorrow too. Be rolling in it again! laugh out loud.

Nationwide have addressed my complaint, apologised and are resetting my account to £0.00 from its current overdrawn (due to their lack of/poor communication) state. That's a massive weight lifted off my shoulders.

Got Amorphis's new album on gold Vinyl and Emperor's Equilibrium on clear Vinyl too.

Not bad as far as birthday presents go.
