Sounds GREAT, Yamaha amps usually do. :music-guitarred:

I wonder if it is only the JX amps own distortion used ?
IMO the G series amps have a rather weak overdrive/distortion, but with pedals they do metal nicely.

Johann always lists exactly the equipment used. So we can be sure that it is just the amp we are hearing.
