Great 8-string guitar for rock and metal music! Get crystal clear, clear tones, flashy leads with incredible realism. Shreddage 3 Hydra with two different pickups, over 30,000 samples and over 50 included tone snapshots is the most complete Shreddage guitar ever.
Shreddage 3 Hydra is the culmination of everything we learned at Impact Soundworks over 10 years of creating virtual guitars. This is our vision of what an uncompromising, high-quality 8-string guitar should be like. Our internal quality bar was so high that we recorded all the samples three times, striving for perfect characteristics and tone. Now, finally, everything is ready, and you can enjoy the perfect rock and metal virtual guitar in your music.
We selected the “Iron Label” RGIF8 for our guitar, tuned to low E, and equipped it with Fishman Fluence Tosin Abasi Signature pickups. These pickups take the Shreddage 3 Hydra to the highest class, even when compared to our other instruments. Not only do they have crisp and distinct tones (neck and bridge positions), but their clarity and low noise are unparalleled. Some sustain notes sound for over 40 seconds!
Thanks to exhaustive sampling of all useful articulations, dynamics, RR variations and layers, Hydra provides you with all the tools you need to create absolutely incredible guitar tracks. With the correct spelling, you can create rhythmic parts, chords and leads that will amaze you with their sound and realism.
Naturally, this killer guitar for rock and metal music, especially heavy subgenres and progressive variations. But, as you can hear in our demos, the possibilities of pure tone are also impressive. Clarity and shutter speed make Hydra the perfect choice for any gaze style music.
