A guitar with personality and character. Most people sample the nicest guitar they can get their hands on, but we went for the most interesting. This is over 10000 samples of a Defil Tarantella electric guitar made in Poland in 1972, which is a lot like those cheesy old Japanese and Italian electrics of the 1960s, but even weirder. We sampled it as a 6-string, as a 12-string, in Nashville tuning, and both electrically and acoustically. This is basically the ultimate quirky indie guitar, and a terrible guitar for death metal unless you're making death metal ironically.
There was also a matching bass manufactured at the time - the Defil Mambo. Looking for one to sample which does not have a broken or warped neck has proven difficult, but we have acquired a Defil Rytm, which has a double cutaway and different pickups, and that's probably getting sampled at some point.
Requires Plogue Sforzando version 1.933 or newer, which can be downloaded for free from Plogue's website. All the samples are also included as unlocked WAV files, so you can also use them as one-shot samples etc. if desired.
