Update to link: Since posting I've added and switched things around some. All clips are using either Teles or a Tom Anderson hollow T. RxES/ Zendrive used on "Lyles Blues" and two others indicated...other stuff is the onboard sim amps. Hipshot clip is TA.

Nice clips Madison...the rxes sounds so sweet. The B-bender madness is dead on, you nailed that one. I have a tele at Charlie McVay's getting a B bender installed, can't wait. The hipshot sounds great.

Thanks huckleberry, I was trying to replicate Keith Gattis' style on the bender...but that is near impossible :-). I've given serious thought of sending my Tele to Charlie McVay...it's the $600 that scares me away, BUT the McVay would be an upgrade to the Hipshot. Because of the lack of string angle on the HS, you can occasionally get the dreaded "sitar" effect. Not so with the McVay...just a well thought out and constructed bending device, with little added weight and few mods to your guitar.
It'd be nice to just save up and get the whole package, Crook Tele with the bender already in place!
Great playing and tone! I love that dwight track. What are the eq settings? I'm interested because your b-bender clip is quite trebly, in contrast to the clips on the main site of brad playing through them where the sound is quite dark and bassy. Zendrive sounds good, too.
Thanks for listening nickg! Actually for the bender and tele clips I used a COSM modeling amp onboard the BR-1200. Only used the RxES on the two clips titled accordingly, and at only about 2 on the amp volume, going into a single Tonker.
The past few days I've been recording (not posted) the RxES into an open back blue/silver alnico cab with an SM57 and interestingly enough what sounds fairly bright in the room to my ears, translates to fairly dark once on tape...much as Brad's tone on the Z site.
I've added yet another clip, this time the RxES into the Z open back 2x12 loaded with Weber Blue/Silver 50w Alnicos. Rythym is straight in, the solo is running thru the Zendrive. It's a spin on a Lyle Lovett tune my band does.
After a lot of experimenting with mic placement, this clip is pretty much what the "live" setting sounds like.
Oh and the overdose switch is off. By kicking it it the ES can really get AGGRESSIVE. ;D
GuitarZ: Best Pandemic Comment - Delivery guy shows up. As we're social distancing, I look at myself in brown loafers, black socks, gym shorts, t-shirt and say "I realize this is not my best look". His response "You can wear whatever you want to the apocalypse."

GuitarZ: Needed some noise to fill a break in a tune I'm recording. It was too quiet. Just happened to have some High Quality Dr Z Ghia noise to fill the void. "Heal Your Sound with Dr Z! It's not just a guitar tone prescription!"

GuitarZ: Must be great to be a skunk. Eating bird food about 10' from our sun room. I'm clapping and yelling. At best, it might have given me one "yea what?" look while continuing to dine. At one point, there were two skunks and two racoons.

easyed: Guitar Z, I encountered to ultimate garbage raiding combo once. We'd been having problems with the garbage cans being raided by raccoons for weeks. Late in the evening I heard rattling at the cans. I went out and found that he'd allied with a skunk. "OK"

GuitarZ: EasyEd - Someone at work topped us both. The inside of their car had been somewhat ransacked. They were blaming their son. They checked the video. It was a Bear! I'll stick with the racoons, skunks, foxes, and squirrels.

bigboki: In this age and time when everybody are struggling and especially S&Ms I am amazed to see that kind of ignorance. I am really sorry for your experience dear Dr Z but it is for the better. You don't want to do business with those kind of people anyway.

GuitarZ: Didn't want to restart the plumbing thread, so I figured I'd ShoutBox this. How the heck does cleaning the aerator on a faucet cause a leak to start under the faucet? Huh? Arggggh!!!!

The Bad Poodle Experience: well, Mike, it shouldn't have been the cause of a leak. double-check your work.

GuitarZ: I updated in the Plumbing thread that the Moen website says that a faulty aerator can cause a handle/base leak. Eiyy! I really don't understand how plumbing works. I was ready to double check all connections. But, the leaking stopped with cleaned Aerator.
