I get a lot of comments with people asking why their guitar amp doesn't sound the way that it does on video demonstrations even when they are using the same amplifier. The main reason is understanding the difference between preamp distortion and power amp distortion. In this video, I demonstrate how to get your amp to sound at its optimum level. The Studio Rats are core band members Paul Drew on guitar/production/mixing, drummer James Ivey and Dan Hawkins on bass. They collaborate with singers and musicians to produce radio-ready songs.
