    Default Ty Tabor's Early Guitar Tone - THE CODE FINALLY CRACKED

    Wow. SO KEWL.
    This is the kind of stuff that makes the age if the internet so amazing.

    I've been wondering about this for YEARS myself.
    Funny how I've met Ty quite a few times and it never dawned on me to ask him about it...hmmm...

    Anyway, this guy is the Indiana Jones of guitar tone.
    I ran across his vids whilst on a King's X video hunt.
    He's been trying to 'crack the code' on Ty's early tone for years and I say he's nailed it.
    Not really complicated in terms of gear but the amp and guitar will set you back quite a bit.
    Did a quick hunt on eBay for the stuff and OUCH.

    PART ONE:



    PART TWO (of special note for all us VH fans at 6:49):



    PART THREE:



    ...and an updated edition with a kewl YouTube trick to get vids to play in stereo:




    Next to getting the secret formula for Ed's tones or Coca-Cola, this is one of the biggest finds ever...LOL!

    Enjoy!

    TT is working with Egnater amps on a "Gretchen" module for their MOD series and also a modified high gain module.
    How open-minded do I have to be before my brains start spilling out?

    Niiiiice!

    The dynamics on that amp are really amazing for solid state.

    Must. Have. Lab 5!


    ...or maybe it's the pickups?







    Don't read this.

    I think it's a magical, totally random combination of the electronics in the guitar and that amp. Who woulda thunk it. I'd known for quite some time that he used the Lab amp but other than that, I was clueless.

    Both the guitar and amp are NEAR IMPOSSIBLE to get your hands on today and each is outrageously expensive...IF you can find them.
