Solo guitar recorded by Jorge Goncalves using Amplifire® and this WAV impulse response file cab collection. See SoundCloud description for more details.
Andre LaFosse recorded four quick improvs, each using a different combination of two IRs from the Dr. Bonkers Poly 1X12 collection. The same guitar, amp, and reverb settings were used for each demo track:
- Reverend Avenger TL on bridge pickup
• Kazrog Recabinet 5 for IR loading and mixing (set completely flat - no eq, speaker dynamics, or other Kazrog enhanced features here)
• Scuffham S-Gear 2 on the "Duke" amp model (no Scuffham IRs/speaker sims used)
• Valhalla Room for early reflection reverb/stereo imaging
Both Guitar and Bass were recorded using these impulse response (ir) files, Please see video description for more details.

The small closed back cabinet is lightweight, deadened with what looks to be fiberglass insulation, but the combo sounds pretty stark and revealing- dark at lower volumes and with a bit of a bite at louder volumes. The speaker design is way over-engineered for strictly guitar use, as it doesn't bottom out or fart like most guitar speakers when you try to play bass guitar through them at gig volume. But the Polytone® also doesn't sound like a blanket is over the speaker when playing guitar through it, unlike some prominent bass speakers sound when playing guitar through them.
Impulse responses made with this cab can really sound great with many different types of digital amp models using clean or light gain, even bass amp models. If you try to play black metal or djent with these impulse response (IR) files, you will probably be very disappointed in them just as you would be with the real cabinet.
