    The more I use their Luna amp and NY8 cabs the more I like how my sound is right where I want it. Great gear!

    . With a little help from my friends. The cats were killing it and not even breaking a sweat.

    I"m listening now to the show now. What is the first song? I like those chords at around 1:58 mark and again around 2:32. Great playing!

    Mark,

    Maybe missed it, but let it be known when you are playing in NYC.

    thanks! Those chords are on the inner four strings with a major triad over a b9 in the root. So something like x7888x and sliding it around chromatically. Jim Hall did this often.

    I guess I didn’t think to post here about it, but I was all over Facebook with it. Please Facebook friend me if you’ve not already. Thanks !!

    I corrected a typo in my original reply. Also, some folks motte this as E/F but personally I don’t care for that approach.

    Demo of some Raezers Edge amplification. Rich tone, crystal clear, absolutely inaudible noise floor. 200 watts of class D headroom.

    I'm spellbound by your music and playing. It would probably make any amp/cab combination sound good, but this one should please the tone perfectionists among us. Also, a lesson to all amp reviewers: less rapid-fire runs, more lingering notes and chords, please!

    So amazing and beautiful in every way ! Thank you very much for creating and posting this.

    "Rich tone" is putting it far, far beyond mildly!

    Really sounds a lot like Mark Kleinhaut. I really wish you would stop posting this stuff, though. My GAS is bad enough without it. And I already have more amps than I can use.

    Mark, In my opinion, your tone on your earlier videos was to die for i.e. you have always had great tone with this Halfling This doesn't sound that much better to my ears. With that said, how it sounds and feels to your ears in the room is the most important thing. I'm listening to this via a Youtube video and while I have a very good playback system I'm still dealing with the quality of the Youtube video. It sounds great but you always sounded great.

    Hi Rob, for recording, this amp rig might not be better or even materially different than the sound I get on videos from my normal “home” rig, but translating to the volume of a bandstand I can tell you the Raezers performs in a way my little low powered home rig couldn’t begin to touch. Unless an amp makes hiss and hum, almost any amp can sound great in a low volume home setting.

    Mark, I agree and its why I would not buy an new amp/speaker combo based strictly on a YouTube video. I either I have to ideally hear with my own ears or from the advice of seasoned gigging musicians such as yourself.

    I follow that approach too, mostly. With boutique gear you almost always have to rely on the recommendations of other players. That’s kind of why I’m posting this

    Mark, is this the same rig you used when you played at Fat Cat in NYC? That was a really good sound, nice and fat. This seems a bit brighter cleaner than the live sound, but I imagine that's mostly a function of volume.

    It sounds great! Thanks.

    I would like to hear a A/B test between Raezer's Edge and Acoustic Image Clarus.

    Interesting and thank you, Mark. I ran across this on YouTube yesterday, as it happens.

    I have a clear favorite of those three- the AI as the notes sound more "solid" somehow. Next was the RE and last the Quilter. Is that because I have a Clarus 2r (Series II I think, all white buttons and IIRC the Series III had some red buttons) of my own and am used to the sound? Although that is with solo guitar as presented; with a band, most if not all of the differences would probably be inaudible.

    And I have an RE 12" cab and a Redstone 8"; I like the former much better and assumed that was due to the 12" rather than 8" driver. But your RE 8" sounds great and very similar to the RE 12", so perhaps it is ported vs. non-ported that makes the difference.

    I doubt between AI and Raezer's Edge. Maybe in the latter I notice a little more clarity in the notes.

    I did this too at the time white shirt is Raezers Edge "Luna", blue shirt is Acoustic Image "Clarus SLR", black shirt Quilter "Toneblock 202".

    AI sounds darker and more familiar to my ears since I have one. But in that context I really like the sound of the "Luna".

    Thanks, again!

    I was a dyed in the wool AI player for many years, since they first came out, which is so long ago I barely recall. I had their very first model and upgraded a few times and absolutely loved the sound. Jack Zucker convinces me to reopen the running and audition new products and Raezers made me an offer I couldn’t refuse- a free no strings trial.
