Dream Guitars Mojo demo
« on: January 25, 2007, 07:45:39 AM »
Dream Guitars in North Carolina is selling a used Fly Mojo. They have a brief video and audio demo of the Mojo on their website. Go to the following link(see below) and select either the movie(sound up please) or just the audio alone. I have no interest in helping them sell this guitar. I just thought that the demo would go a long way to giving people an idea of what the Mojo sounds like since there are periodic posts on the forum by folks wondering if the Mojo is the guitar for them. BTW, the video and/or audio can be saved with a right click of your mouse.

Thanks much.  I'm one of those curious folks.  It's so hard to find Fly Mojo samples out there!  I was trying to get an idea of the warmth compared to a PRS McCarty.  Anyone have opinions on whether that recording was faithful to what a Mojo can do?

Well, yes, it is faithful to what a Mojo sounds like(speaking from personal experience as a Mojo owner). Of course, with different pickup selections, coil splitting, tone sculpting, etc., the Mojo is even more versatile than that sound clip demonstrates.

Strictly speaking, it's not my sound clip. It's a link to a sound clip recorded by guitarist Al Petteway as a promotional for Dream Guitars in North Carolina.

If anyone knows of more samples, please post.  My first take on the above sample is that I don't hear anything extraordinary.  Maybe it's the amp they used.  I'm a huge Phil Keaggy fan and have loved what he does with a Fly Deluxe. Recently, I've been checking out Dave Martone's playing too. The Fly is a very unique and modern sound.  I've only ever played a P-38 and thought highly of it.  I guess I'm just looking for a better idea if the Mojo brings more warmth.

With the samples I've found of the McCarty, it has an incredible richness.  It really can sing when the gain hits a certain point.  Here's what I've found:

http://www.bogneramplification.com/Sean101BPlexi2.mp3
http://www.bogneramplification.com/Sean101BPlexi3.mp3

I watched Widespread Panic on Austin City Limits a few weeks ago.  Until then, I really couldn't associate a PRS "voice" that drew me in.  Their former lead player was still with them and was playing a McCarty for 90% of the show. It was such a great tone, and I've heard that same voice in all the samples I've found.

I really like what Parker has done and want to understand the Mojo better.

I wonder if any forum members own both a Fly and a PRS McCarty?  I'd love to get a perspective from some who owns (or has played) both.

bigstrings, check out the sound clips posted on this forum. Most likely there are some made with Fly Mojos.

I own a McCarty Hollowbody II, which may be an entirely different animal. The first thing I notice when hopping between the Flys and the PRS is that the gain on the PRS is much lower. So, if I am going to use them together in performance, I will have to address that. What I find is that the PRS sounds "dull" next to the Fly. On its own, it's great. It's sort of the difference between and average and a great mastering job on a CD. The sparkle, dynamic range, etc seems to be much greater with the Fly - any Fly. But, I really think it's a gain issue. I don't mind the darker sound of the PRS, in fact, I like it - just that given the same settings, the PRS sounds anemic.

Thanks Bob, that's good to hear.  I was actually digging the sound of the McCarty a bit more than the Mojo on the Dream Guitars clips posted above...but I know it's hard to judge these things unless you consider the complete rig that you're using, the settings etc.

Thanks for the comments about your hollobody, uburoibob!  I'm grateful for the Dream Guitars clip, but it's not clear which amp is being used.  The McCarty clips I posted were from some very high end amps, so the comparison might not even be fair.  I've checked out everything I could find in the forums, but I'm still not finding that elusive clip saying, "Here's the Mojo on the neck humbucker and then with the coil tap, first clean and then dirty, going through a Marshall or Fender."  Kinda like what they did for the PM20PRO http://www.parkerguitars.com/code/resour/resour_videos.asp  

My amp is a Fender 65 Super Reverb Reissue, so I'd love to get an idea of the clean tone.

The NiteFly M video with Mark Seal is really wonderful.  Parker would be well served to do one like that for the Fly Mojo.  That "New Fly Mojo Video" ain't so new and only shows off the looks.

I wonder how different the NiteFly M's tone is from the Fly Mojo.  How close is it, Mojo owners?

I found out that Mark Seal has upgraded to the Fly Mojo and has a concert video on his site where he wails on one:
