                    Guitarist 6/2001


To show you, how different these instruments sound, I recorded some audio clips with three different Steinberger guitars: A clean riff, a distorted riff and a short single note line.

All tracks were recorded without any effects, the distortion is just the lead channel of my Mesa/Boogie F-30. The fuller sound of the solo line is achieved by using the contour mode of the F-30 which adds more hights (by still providing enough mids).

For all recordings the bridge humbucker was used and all instruments, tone pots were full up (GP, GL as they have a passive EQ), HazLabs EQ was in center position (GM7TA), volume pots were full up. Amp settings were all the same.

Guitars were strung with LaBella STP 942 sets.

Tracks were normalized (0dB) and are provided in high quality (wav format) to give you the best impression. As the clips are short, the files are a 2-3 MB in size.

Someone interested in Ned Steinbergers patent specifications? For instance download the files for the first design of the L2 bass from 1978, the TransTrem 1, Trans Trem 2, and many more at Google Patents. But note one thing: They do not contain all the information to build the guitar, bass or part.
