  1. Page's Les Paul gave him a very distinctive sound live. It gave him a sort of characteristic "quack" that he was known for when playing in the middle pickup selector. It added a fullness and 3-dimensional sound compared to the telecaster before. The LP responds better to higher gain, and the mids cut through very well.
  2. You never know...Page could be serious and actually have a plan together. The problem isn't him -- it's all this media BS that takes pieces of what he said, hyping up a Zep Reunion, following him around with cameras, etc, and making the five hundred thousandth "newest" Rolling Stone article. What we're seeing is the effects of overexposure. Be it interviews, news articles, or random videos. It's promising, and a little bit too much. Personally, I keep to dabbling in historical LZ stuff because it's a guaranteed enjoyment. The future? That's a mystery.
  3. Haha, that's right. The cryptic nature of LZ is what keeps me infinity interested in them.
  4. I love Zeppelin's early 70's era. Absolutely adore it. You can really see the connection between themselves and their audience in RAH. The energy, the freshness, the character. I've always been wanting to find a good quality video of them playing live 1971 or early 72'.
  5. Threads like this are impossible to really form an concrete answer. It's constantly changing. I like everything!
  6. There ya go. I had a pretty hard time reading it and hate people like that. It's like they're trying to expose some flaw out of you, which isn't anyone's business. I say worry about yourself and everyone else be damned. That's why LZ was so successful--they don't let interviewers like that guy win them over.
  7. One of the WORST recent one's I've read in a while: http://www.gq.com/moty/2014/jimmy-page-men-of-the-year Interviewer asks mostly questions about Page's drug use, calls him an addict, and of course his appearance in TSRTS and the whole symbolism behind his occult interest. Just...that's not a way to go about things.
  8. All these attractiveness statistics are really nonsense. Be yourself, and don't be so superstitious to the point where you're looking ridiculous out of desperation. That's probably doing more harm than good.
  9. It's coming along, I can tell you that. Obviously, there's no way it's "truthful" because it's a rearrangement, but it's more honest than the mock footage itself. I don't know, I don't want to rush things, but let's say around the holidays this year. Perhaps LZF and I can work together and throw out a full cut or something along that by then. It's really a professional job so far, but to ensure that level of quality is consistent throughout the whole film we've got to give it a lot of intimate time to develop. We have, of course, so it's a definite prospect to look forward to!
  10. Well said my friend! Welcome to the forum!! Mate, you've got to be WAY more specific. You're either talking live set ups or within the studio. You never mentioned your budget, a song from PG (which in itself is a very vast album of many different sounds). This matters, but I'll try and help you the best I can. For live, Jimmy kept things pretty consistent throughout the mid 70's on. The guy above is correct - Page used his 200W modified Marshall, a Super Lead if I might add. Yes, a maestro echoplex and very few other effects and pedals. A wah of some sort would be a good investment to consider. The MXR Phase 90 is quite superb for The Rover. I digress... Don't get too caught up in the exact pedals, exact pickups, exact cabinets, etc Page used. The reality is, you'd have a awfully hard time accumulating these set ups and would cost a fortune. Also, if you think you can just wake up one day and say "Oh, I'm going to mod my future 100 watt Marshall to 200 watts" you're going about it the wrong way. That's way over my head and 99% of guitarists. Page used a Les Paul. Any guitar like this, in addition to the multitude of valve amps out on the market will work. The reality of the matter is -- and Jimmy himself would tell you this -- there is no "secret" like a lot of people make it out to be. It's just his LP straight into a cranked Marshall. No phase mods, etc, during this era, for live performances. Until you give us more info on the specific sound you're trying to achieve, I'm afraid I can't add anymore without writing an entire encyclopedia. I plan on making a thread in the near future covering the specifics of Page's live tone and the most efficient way to accurately achieve it. Remember though, gear isn't what gives you your tone. It's all in your hands.
  11. I should go!!! To see Mr. Page himself in person, in NYC - I have to find a way to get in to this.
  12. If you even bothered to read the title, it's for a digital conversion, the way most people listen to music today. Yes, CD"s are digital but if you were following all posts you would realize we've been referring to FLAC conversion the entire time. It isn't pointless at all to listen via FLAC my friend. I can utilize it on my laptop, phone -- anywhere I can connect an aux cable which 99% of speaker sets have nowadays. Plus, if you bought all the remastered albums, it would be so much more efficient to conveniently have them stored in FLAC on your devices so you could make playlists and jam out in your car, or whatever. I also mentioned headphones and speakers, meaning good audio listening equipment in general. I never said a direct speaker set up waas the only way to go. This whole thread is for LZ fans to attain the highest quality possible in the modern era's technology. CD's are becoming more obsolete every day, and to be honest, take up space when travelling. I have the whole LZ vinyl collection but of course am preferring the new remasters. There's still nothing wrong with listening via CD or vinyl. I prefer it when I'm by my speaker set. "He probably means on a computer, My cd drive is very loud and I hate having to hear it when listening to music so I have all my cds ripped to my comp in flac." Exactly!
  13. Okay my friends, here s an update! With the new 2014 CD and Vinyl remasters being released, there isn't a better time to update your library. Rip these CD's in FLAC codec or any other losless codec and you're set. Now go buy a good pair of speakers and headphones and TRULY appreciate the beauty of Zeppelin, the way they should be heard.
  14. After losing gravity for the eleventh time I've given up. Sorry, but this is just too obscure for me to enjoy. Cool concept nonetheless.
