    It sounds pretty damn close to me man, well done. EQ settings/amp obviously play a big part in it as well, but I can hear how the core tone is strat-like for sure.

    Just so you know I recorded mine: Strat direct into the 68' 1987 then through a SM57 with the board flat & the amp flat; no pedals at all, a 4 x 12" with G75-T's.

    I'm not using a Mic. Im using my Zoom H2 just so u know.
    What I have reaslied is that I'm missing the low frequencies. So I need to EQ that out.
    That may be one of the downsides of tapped humbuckers.

    This is actually a good little experiment :cheers:

    Yeah possibly. For a clean Strat tone a good yardstick could be Knoffler?

    I won't make any excuses about the tone. but listening to to the original .WAV and the conversion SoundClick does there's a difference. but do you really think it's Ice-Pick or just bright? lol

    Ok lets go with "tinny". I expect more warmth and a hint of graininess in a Marshall/strat clean tone.
    That sounded like Seymour Duncan pickups which were sort of too clinical. :hippie:
