Alnico Black Hawk
« on: April 18, 2020, 08:04:30 AM »
Here's a preview of our new album.

This track features my two Schecters, a Stiletto 6-FR with a Gotoh GE1996T bridge in the left speaker, a C-1 Blackjack ATX in the right speaker.

Both have the Black Hawk set with the AlNiCo V bridge magnets option, CLR 3-way switch, BKP CTS 550K pots, BKP Jensen 0.022uF PIO cap.

Left speaker is through a Peavey JSX with JJ ECC83S preamp tubes (with a Sovtek 12AX7 LPS phase inverter tube) and Tung Sol 6L6GC-STR power tubes, into a HiWatt 412 cab with Weber Legacy speakers.

Right speaker is through a Peavey 6534+ with Ruby 12AX& AC5 HG+ preamp tubes and TAD EL34B-STR power tubes, into an Orange PPC412 slant cab with Celestion Vintage 30 speakers (a top speaker was mic'ed).

This track doesn't feature the neck pickup but the other tracks on the album feature the neck and middle positions on the C-1 through the Ultra channel of the JSX (with various reverbs), except for one lead on the Stiletto 6-FR middle position through the same amp (with a Carbon Copy delay in that case).  There are also clean passages using the jSX clean channel and the Weber cab, the intro to the opening track featuring the bridge on the Stiletto through a Boss MO-2 and the Carbon copy on the left, the C-1 into a Mooer Skyverb and the JSX on the right. The other clean passage is the intro to the fourth track, played on the C-1 through the JSX rig.  I'm pretty sure that Josh used the BH neck for that one.  Anyway the Bandcamp address is on this video and I expect it will be available within the next week.

Tuning is C standard.  Both guitars have D'Addario EXL117 strings, 11-56
