Royal Atlantic w/ an EQ pedal

Hey all - is anyone using an EQ pedal with their RA? I tried a Maxon EQ in the loop of my RA and it added a ton of noise - is that typical when using an EQ pedal? Anyone having better results with a different pedal? I'm not completely sold on using one at all anyways, just trying something new. Than...

Re: some strymon love...

I know what you mean - I never really used a lot of reverb, but now I find myself using it all the time. Strymon is the best!

Re: NGD! 2014 Gibson R8

thanks all! I know I will probably end up eating my words, but I can't ever see myself selling either one of these - actually thinking about unloading some other guitars because of them - Gibson's custom shop is like night and day compared to their standards - not saying at all that the standards ar...

Re: Royal Atlantic mods!...and creamback speakers!

oh, and by the way...before you say I'm crazy for dropping $340 on speakers - I sold my V30's on fleabay for $100 each - so, I only really spent $140 out of pocket - not too bad! :wink:

Royal Atlantic mods!...and creamback speakers!

Hey all - just wanted to share a few things. First off, I love my Royal Atlantic - I had a head/2x12 cab set up for a little while, but recently sold it for a combo (I don't play out and a combo is just easier to move around my house). The only thing that ever bothered me was the mid hump that I cou...

Re: How noisy is the hi/lo modes of your RA?

Yup, same here - reverb adds a little extra noise with no attenuation - but I pretty much always use the multi-soak feature so I don't really notice much noise at all - one of the quieter tube amps I've ever owned/used.

Re: Royal atlantic,how does it feel to play?Stiff or spongy?

diddlydan - based off of what you are looking for in an amp, the Royal Atlantic sounds like EXACTLY what you are looking for..."british distortion and good quality cleans" could be an exact quote from Mesa themselves. That is the mojo and soul of the RA-100. Simply put - best amp I've ever owned/pla...

Re: RA100 in 50W mode, better than I expected

I've had mine about 1 1/2 now - still using the stock tubes, and still not really gassing either - well, maybe a little bit for the new Friedman JJ Jerry Cantrell sig head - but they want like $3500 for just the head :shock:

Re: RA100 in 50W mode, better than I expected

J.J - thanks man - that's my newest baby - it's a 2013 Gibson R9 in faded tobacco. It's my first historic - by far the best Gibby I've ever owned/played. Gibson Custom builds some amazing guitars - it is flawless. It's actually kind of a curse because now I don't even want to play my other guitars, ...

Re: RA100 in 50W mode, better than I expected

JJ - you're not alone man - I got a chance to crank my RA today in 100 watt mode and I'm now back on the "100 watt team" haha. I was rockin' along with some Alice in Chains and damn did sound great. I switched over to 50 watts and was uninspired... I totally agree that 50 watts is sweeter, but I for...

Re: Royal Atlantic/Recto Cab face lift!

Just realized how crappy this pic looked...I try to take a few more some time soon and upload them. Also, I had just finished it and my settings were all messed up. I take a pic of my normal settings just to share too!

Re: Royal Atlantic/Recto Cab face lift!

A few lessons learned from the first go around (for anyone who wants to change their grill cloth): 1. you gotta put the Mesa face plate back on before you fully install the grill (on the RA only) - the wood behind the grill is cut out for the face plate to be "sunk in" - I realized I didn't do this ...
