I never posted a clip Metal clip while using my Nik Huber Redwood..
I even said once it worked perfect for everything except metal... Shame on me dry.gif

In my opinion this guitar works like a charm for metal as well smile.gif
My Gibson is depressed right now, poor thing laugh.gif

Anyway, this is just a short clip to show you what it sounds like.
Didn't spend to much time mixing it, but it sounds pretty good.

Hübermetal: Attached File  Hubermetal.mp3 ( 1.75MB ) Number of downloads: 243

Hope you like it, comments, critique, improvement suggestions and/or flaming are welcome biggrin.gif

I'm no pro when it comes to composing, but that was an awesome song, Pål ! biggrin.gif I have nothing negative to say other than the almost pure use of minor pentatonic. I could be wrong, but a metal song must have Aeolian and/or Phrygian Dominant as well !

Those are just details, and as I said, I may be wrong, so you can just ignore it if you want...

AWESOME song, both lead and rhythm ! smile.gif

Thanks mate smile.gif

Well, since it's not a song I didn't really think about scales.
It was just a short clip to show the sound smile.gif

But I'll keep that in mind when I write a complete song out of this riff smile.gif

Thanks again!

There are no metal guitars just guitars beter suited for metal than others so why shouldn't a handmade Nik Huber guitar be bad for metal?

It sounds awesome!

I agree smile.gif
It's just that it's got some "vintage" handwound pickups installed,
which shouldn't be well suited for metal (at least not compared to my Bareknuckle Pickups in my Gibson)..

But I was wrong... again... tongue.gif

Thanks a lot, I'm glad you like it smile.gif

Vintage just means your amp needs to have enough gain on it's own to get a distorted tone...

I was more suprised about how thick the tone of you Redwood is,considering it has a hollow body! Did you double tracked the recording to make it sound fatter or is it just one layer?

Oh and just out of interest, which Bareknuckle pickups do you have in what kind of Gibson? happy.gif

Ah.. I didn't know that smile.gif Thanks!

It's two tracka panned 45% left and right smile.gif
But either way, it sounds just as fat as any solidbody guitar I've ever tried to be honest..

I've got Nailbombs in a 1991 Gibson Les Paul Studio Lite (Limited Edition version),
great guitar! smile.gif
