Heir Apparent (Analogman Prince of Tone)

Heir Apparent, the Helix model of a Analogman Prince of Tone

Recorded using a Les Paul with Burstbucker pickups into a Twin Reverb model with the normal input. The overdrive pedal and amp are set at default settings. A touch of reverb added for depth.

The Prince of Tone is the same as half of the King of Tone, with an external MODE switch standard. It is the same as the KOT with HIGHER GAIN option, so you can use the full range of the DRIVE knob and it has a little more drive at the top than a normal gain KOT. The DISTORTION mode is improved though, for a louder, stronger distortion sound.

Double Worship HX Stomp Direct (Recording, Headphone, PA) This patch is based on a Fender Twin, with some tremolo for modulation, a couple delay settings, and reverb. The drive section uses the Heir Apparent. Snapshot 1 is clean, SS 2 is drive and SS 3 engages the trem.  nsauceman 14 1
Thrice Dustin Kensrue HX Stomp Direct (Recording, Headphone, PA) These are a few settings that I think are close to Dustin Kensrue from Thrice's current setup. I've heard him say on Twitter that he likes using the Double Amp model and Minotaur and messing with gain settings and snapshots for different tones. I de… nsauceman 8 0
