  • FWIW, "grainfreak" aka "Ralph" had a pretty heavy internet forum presence on most of the high traffic guitar tone-centric websites prior to around 2015. At that point, he promptly stopped forum participation due to, as best I can tell, LOTS of drama associated with personal attacks on other listmembers and himself. He still plays, based on what I can find, and is an absolutely STUNNING player, at that.


    This is actually his killer Whitesnake cover band, "Almost Whitesnake". Ralph plays the white LP.



    And his Journey cover band, "Evolution":

    And his older cover band doing "Hold The Line":


    And this is him playing on a Fortin modded Marshall:

  • I've reached out to gainfreak on Facebook after doing a little sleuthing to find out his real name. He's a under the weather currently, but did say he never got a chance to profile his Le Tekro tone. That being said, he mentioned he was able to get the tone with a TJ profile of a Marshall and a Boss BF-2 flanger. As mentioned elsewhere on the forum, a Mesa Boogie profile with a parametric EQ boosting 800 Hz with a very tight Q (bandwidth) will get you the Stryper tone.


    He's also graciously offered to send me a few profiles to try once he gets better. so stay tuned.
