Lonestar with pedal steel?

I'm looking to get a pedal steel in the future and was wondering if I'd need to get a separate amp or could just plug it into my Lonestar! Thanks.

Re: Clean channel sounds better with overdrive pedal

I seem to be in the minority in that I love the dirty channel of the Lonestar. For heavier tones I picked up a Digitech Hardwire SC-2 Valve Distortion. The pedal is absolutely marvelous. It picks up where channel 2 leaves off giving you the full rich tone of a cranked Dual Rectifier.

Re: Me playing some mean country licks on my Lonestar!

Great pickin'!! It that a standard Tele or something else? It sounds great. Thanks!! It's a MIM Classic 50's Tele. Got it for 20% off at Sam Ash for a total of $600. Best guitar in the store, imo. I had gone in to get a Gretsch G5120 at the time and picked that sucker up and was floored. I'll get t...

Me playing some mean country licks on my Lonestar!

Hey, I recorded this today. My main clean channel sounds like a crackling campfire, so I have to take the damn thing back into the shop :evil: so I used the "Tweed" setting, which is still rather noisy. Ugh, tube amps. Anyways, the recording didn't come out too bad. Read the vid description for more...

Any reason not to crank the loop volume all the way up?

I just switched to the Digitech Hardwire Delay and Chorus pedals, which have higher voltage capacity than most other pedals, so if damaging them or making the signal clip is out of the question is there any reason not to max out the loop volume?

Why All The Noise??

I have a Mesa Boogie Lonestar 2x12 combo. My main two electric guitars are a Fender 50's Series Telecaster and a Hamer Californian Elite. I have shielded both guitars with copper and potted the pickups on the Tele. My amp and all pedals are running into a Furman SS-6B power conditioner that has EMI/...

All True Bypass pedals in the fx loop??

Is it okay to have all TB in the loop? I guess what I'm asking is if the loop has a buffer in it that can drive the cables to and fro and into the pedals. Thanks!

Re: Should the tone controls add noise?

I dragged my amp into another room and first tried straight in with the loop off. Then with the pedals hooked up on loop on. I think the main problem was being near my computer, which seems to add a lot of noise. I don't understand because I have my guitars shielded and potted, and I plug the pedals...

Should the tone controls add noise?

If I turn any of the tone controls on the amp past 12 o'clock it introduces a lot more hiss/noise. Is this normal? I have a 2x12 combo. Thanks.

Electrical issues...common?

I get weird sounds out of my amp due to electrical happenstances. If I switch the ceiling fan off in my room the amp pops. Today I took the amp to a friend's place, and he had a fan plugged in across the room out of a different outlet, and the whole time my amp was making weird noises. He turned the...

Re: T.C. Electronic Chorus was making NOISE!!

hmm...my bonehead actually tried playing the chorus with the compressor on and it tamed the high end! the beginning of notes were popping a little so i may have to make some adjustments, but maybe that's all i really need to do is use the compressor. the only thing that sucks about that is more tap ...
