The Decimator

1/10th the power with all the spunk!

These samples were recorded using my '73 Telecaster with Barden pickups. The selector was in the center position (both pickups) and the volume & tone were all the way up.

The microphones were a Shure SM58 and an AKG C1000S (one on each channel) placed within an inch of the grille cloth and slightly off center.

The Decimator is running with a 6AU6 in V1, a 12AX7 in V2 and a 12AU7 in V3, and the tone controls are set at 1/2 (straight up).
