I recently used Bert’s Wisselord (spelling?) Magnatone on some studio sessions for a guy’s album over here in DK. I’d totally overlooked these profiles until now. Such a good clean tone with my Alpher Mako Elite with Bare Knuckle pups (their tele neck and LP-style bridge humbucker, don’t remember the exact names). The pre-loaded chorus effect got great use, too, which was really lucky; I never use chorus, so wouldn’t have known how to dial it in
Thanks Sam !! It was a pity I couldn't profile the faboulus chorus/vibrato but I did my best to produce a kinda simular effect..
I love those pofiles too.
The Watkins Westminster is also a very usable sound, it's not impressive at all listening to it solo but a killer in the track...imho
quote from the past (2016)
The Mad Professor amp (which one?) never made it to any pack, right?
Right... I believe it was a CS-40. It was such a complex amp and I had to make a choice : spend a lot of time on this amp trying to get some acceptable sounds or profile a couple of other amps ...it became the second choice..
While we all wait for Bert's Bogner profile pack.
Here is some more of his Incredible Friedman BE100 profile .
WARNING me in PJs in this video. what can I say it was late.
Hope you enjoy.
Hell yeah, I've certainly enjoyed your playing, sound, guitar and especially your PJs. I look forward to more !!
breu Count me in for the XTC profiles!!!! Very excited about this !!!
Btw, if you ever have the chance to profile a Wizard Modern Classic, you would have one guaranteed customer
I would love to profile a Wizard Modern Classic.
As far as I know nobody in the Netherlands is using a Wizard...so unfortunately I can’t lay my hands on one...
Hi Bert, same to you, all the best! Can't tell you how much I like your Friedman rigs as well as the Filmo and the Acoustic pack. All very inspiring stuff. I use it a lot. Cool thing
Any plans for new packs / profiles in 2020?
Thanks man, I’m happy to hear that !!!
New plans, yeah, for instance, I’m gonna do my Bogner ecstasy classic the way I did my BE100 pack !!
Hi Bert , just wanted to let you know that I just did some leads with a CAE lead from your commercial pack on my latest track.
I also got the Fimo & acoustic packs , really great stuff , thanks for your efforts & superb ear
Yooh, thanks for posting waraba Cool playing, cool sound !! Appreciate it very much
The Filmo cleans are something very-special IMHO, as are the edge-of-breakup and crunch Rigs.
So true. I love that pack so much. And it has two aspects:
One is the warm and always thick sound which works under almost every circumstance, i.e. different guitars and pick up types as well as the volume. It simply sounds great.
Second is the fact that the unit was not build to amplify guitars - but does it so well. Great case of out of the box thinking to profile it
Yeah Nicky, you're right !!
I made these profiles during the making of the Wisseloord pack and I remember a certain struggle to find the right cab for these amps so I was not fully convinced about the quality.
For that reason I didn't add these to the Wisseloord pack.
After a while I gave the profiles a "second chance" and while listening to it I had a really WOW experience which resulted in the Filmo pack
And indeed, it's no way an amp made for guitar but for that purpose it does an outstanding job
I'm using one of my favourite profiles from Bert on this track. It's the Friedman BE100. The Wah is a Dunlop Cry Baby. The track is called "Life After Love" by Justin Derrico. Hope you enjoy my take on it?
Turn it up
Hi John, thanks for posting your video man !! It's great, love it !! Your guitar is awesome too btw
This is the first video in my serie "Bert's favorites"
It's about profiles which I use in my main session bank.
I hope you'll like it.
If you want more or more detailed info in the video's please let me know.
Well done Nate !! Beautiful song, playing, lyrics and sound man Very Black sabbath'ish as mentioned before. Like that very much !!
hoi iedereen ik heb een vraag heb de profiles van bert over de pa een ks set geprobeerd en tot mijn verbazing klinken ze op mijn monitor wel goed maar op de pa die helemaal recht staat helemaal niet hoe kan dat toch?
Ha Gerard, dat kan in principe ook niet....
Kan je vertellen hoe je routing is...? Pak je live een andere output..? Heb je pure cab aanstaan...? Is er iets mis met de PA..?
Thanks for sharing that, Bert! I think most of us are always looking to learn more about how all the pro's do what they do!
Jeff, you can always ask anything you want to know man... no problem !!
I've always said that Definition is my favourite parameter on the KPA. I hit it first before any Stack EQ or anything else.
Thank you for sharing the video, Bert. I watched it with youtube's text translation on.
Hey Nicky, thanks man, I didn't know there was a translation and subtitle function on YouTube That's good to know !!
It translate my name into Bernd Maylander though which is not so nice haha
Yes, definition is favourite but can change the character and sound of the profile which doesn't mean at all that's a bad thing to happen...but absolutely the first thing to grab when it comes to fine tuning or tweaking...
But imho the most important thing is that the source has to be right..
