Re: Switch to RKII?!?

Roman’s I’d say better basement bathroom ornaments :lol: I would also say that the trick is in the pups and the amp :wink: . Look into Suhr Aldrich pups. Best on the market . trust me , you don’t have to buy a Suhr guitar just install the Humpups, it’ll make a world of diff. I always thought Seymour...

Re: Switch to RKII?!?

That’s good news man.. :) I’m glad to hear you find that bolt ons have more sustain, I thought I was crazy for a while but I also found that my bolt on Suhr has more /better sustain than my set-net mahog. :?: Could also be the set-up though??? Anyhow I already knew that Gibson dropped in overall qua...

Re: Switch to RKII?!?

Good to know there is no substitute for the LP body style when it comes to tone :wink: . (Probably why I always prefered Gibson LP tone to Fender strats :lol: ) I will try to test ride a Carvin CS6 if I find one definitely... man you have amazing gear… :wink: that new LP clone is very nice. Good for...

Re: Switch to RKII?!?

I hear you. It sucks that you had to get rid of your LP SpotLight though… I Love Gibsons also, I’ve always mainly been a Gibson Les paul Custom player (Cherry sunburst) , but never actually owned one, my friend (So I thought…) :twisted: lend it to me for like 4-5 years before wanting it back. I aske...

Re: Switch to RKII?!?

Well that’s a beautiful Gibson Les Paul Spot light you had :wink: Sorry to hear you had to sell it… Women: you can’t live with em’ and you can’t live without . what’s the diff. between the Spot light and a Les paul Custom? They seem identical to me…. I don’t believe you regretted selling your Fender...

Re: Switch to RKII?!?

I also noticed the same thing! Holy Sh?t! The amp is way tighter now that I am driving it with my C90 1x12 hooked up in parallel and there’s NO Bass Flubbbb as before… :shock: this is awesome . I also get the same volume out of both amps . it’s NOT like the 1x12 C90 is putting out less Volume . they...

Re: Switch to RKII?!?

Thanks for the Feedback bandit2013. Always appreciate your expertise man… Good to hear that I am cutting the output current in half through two cabinets, because last time you told me “The V30 sensitivity is higher than that of the C90. Including other speakers like EVM12L. You will or may not even ...

Re: Switch to RKII?!?

Hey guys has anyone tried a Recto 4x12 with V30's and a Mesa 1x12 C90 widebody closed back front ported cab together using the 1x12 as a Monitor with their Mark V?!? It sounds totally awesome to me… I get the great vintage V30 sounds and the fatness tone of the C90 for me and the drummer to hear in ...

Re: Switch to RKII?!?

So it’s the bias on the power tubes that adds the ice pick highs hey :?: :?: Good to know… thanks for all this great info. man. :) I also can’t stand the ice pick highs, I like a nice fat warm round tone A-La Andy Timmons Clean and J.Trucc’es Distorted Tone… with neck pup selected for leads ALWAYS… ...

Re: Switch to RKII?!?

Just got a mail back from Mesa . here’s they’re response on tuner sucking tone: “The tuner out is an OUT only - there is no signal running back in, so no way for a tuner to suck tone”. that's GOOD News for my ears :) I also remember banging a diaphason on my knees also when I was a kid... didn’t kno...

Re: Switch to RKII?!?

Thanks for the tip on the Snark… I’ll look into one. Cracks me up when you say : “The standby switch is the roulette button, must be a random generator that thows out great sound or crappy sound. Despite the issues perhaps I have mental problem or hearing loss or both” :lol: :lol: big time… Hope tha...

Re: Switch to RKII?!?

Thanks for the great write up. :) Now I understand a lot more about the Roadster…Gassingggg… So you’re saying that if tuner is in the tuner output on the amp it will NOT suck tone, even if it’s NOT true by pass? Correct :?: Because I was thinkin’ of getting a Peterson strobostomp tuner, but they’re ...
