I rarely pay attention to the dirty tones in demo videos. It's not that I refuse to listen to them; I'll generally watch the whole video, which means I'm hearing both. But I don't listen for the dirty tones of others. Is this a peculiar quirk unique to me, or does anyone else relate? I have a specific rationale for this, BTW. My thinking is, there are so many variables to dirty tones, it's almost useless making comparisons. When you factor in playing style/technique, different gear (guitar pickups, wiring, pedals, amps), different recording equipment, etc., I just don't think there's much chance of the demo's dirt sounding like my dirt. Plus, we listen for/hear different things, don't we? One player's "creamy crunch" is another player's "can of angry bees." And that's if we're even that predisposed to dirt tones. Personally, I'd say at least 90% of what I do is clean. And when I go for dirty tones, it's usually just a bit of grit...just a hint of hair...just over the edge of breakup. Often, I don't use a pedal for that, either. Now the clean I'm talking about involves playing through a Vox amp with AC tones, so it's not a pristine or glassy clean. Admittedly, then, even our tastes in clean tones vary. I'm ruminating on this just now because I'm preparing to do a demo vid of one of my teles into one of my Vox Pathfinder 15R amps, and I'm wondering if I should even try to include dirty tones in the video. So although I know my own tastes and tendencies regarding clean and dirty tones, I'm wondering what others would like to hear. I would therefore like your input. Should I include a dirty tones aspect as I run through each pickup selection option?
