Something I don't understand is the last part about how useless these video clips are.I'm a fan of the older 2000 DSLs, gigged one for several years. Had several newer ones and while they can be dialed in to sound good the Friedmans do the thing they are trying to accomplish much MUCH better. Sustain without fizz. Night and day when you have them side by side.
Just the fact that a YouTube vid can make them sound very similar is a testament to how relatively useless these clips are.
If video clips are useless, aren't we also implying that if we record audio, it will be just as useless?
A video clip is visual + audio. If we remove the visuals, we have an audio recording. If our gear tones can't be recorded... then that's a problem, I would think.
Here is another question I have. If Friedman amps are doing something different and maybe a bit better, then where are they at festivals and gigs? Any time I go to a festival or a gig I see Friedman up there like maybe 1% of the time. 50% Kemper (easy to transport). Marshall, Peavey 6505s, Mesa Rectifier, Fender, Vox. I hardly ever see a Friedman. I would expect that if Friedman were such a game changer in tone, we would hear and see them revolutionize things like those amps did. That is not happening. Why not?
That's what puzzles me.
