Hi gain samples.
Regarding the clips for M6 and Smooth operator named High Gain:
The intro of each clip presents a 1-track rhythm guitar without any
processing at all.
The remaing part of the clips features a left and right double-
tracked rhythm guitar with some subtle mix-processing to fit into a
production (EQ and compression).
Each clip also features a non-processed solo-track, but with a touch
of delay on it.
The equipment used was:
Mesa/Boogie Dual Rectifier through a Mesa/Boogie Stiletto Traditional
(Rhythm settings on Red/Modern mode: Gain 11 o’clock, Treble 12, Mid

Much of our parts we make ourselves in our hometown, Jönköping,Sweden. For example we punchpress the Stratocaster® bobins for all our Stratocaster® pickups with our own tool. This will make them perfect in shape and even the right look appears just like the old original ones. Only the best parts are good enough for our customers.
