The year is 2003 and Thrice have just released their album The Artist In The Ambulance catapulting them to the forefront of the punk/hardcore hybrid movement. This preset is modelled after the same album. Fortunately, the 2000s were a simpler time for Thrice and other bands, so modelling the sound of this album based on all of the information out there about their gear helped.
Although Thrice themselves didn’t use a BBE Sonic Maximizer, one was used in this patch as a form of pre-EQ (a lot of bands at the time used this pedal) which tightens up the sound a little bit. A simple, but effective preset.
Recorded on a Fender Telecaster in the bridge position.
Disclaimer: Like most presets, don’t expect a plug and play experience. Depending on your guitar, pickups, strings and playing, this preset might sound different after purchase. Where possible, we will assist all customers with tweaking their presets to get their desired tone. All of the demos that you hear of these presets are not mastered; they have not been mixed in any way and are not double-tracked. All demos are single-tracked guitars. For clone presets especially, what you hear in the song is a result of layered tracks, production and other studio additions to get that sound, the guitars themselves in the mix sound different.
Important: After placing your order, please allow upwards of 24 hours for your presets to be made available. Due to how the Neural DSP Cortex Cloud currently works, you will need to befriend our profile, and presets will be shared with you. Make sure you add the user “Beggars” on Cortex Cloud.
