Re: Anybody got some settings to try for a 7 string?

Nope. Endless tweaking.

Sounds great doesn’t it? So wide sounding, super powerful and works great for 7s. It’s almost like shred mode on the JP2C but very dry... In the best way.

Re: Anybody got some settings to try for a 7 string?

On the 90w Mark V I used Channel 2 Crunch mode for 7 strings. Keeps the heavy but gets rid of the mud. Gain: Max Treble: Max Mid: 2oclock Bass: 9-10oclock Presensce: 10oclock GEQ: On / V shape Keep in mind I play at low volume so these settings may not translate well for high volume. Of course you c...

Re: Simul Class C+

Yeh I run mine pretty low as well. The difference to me between class A vs Simul is subtle. Less than I would expect the difference between DRG to HRG to be. But yeh. Too many variables to pinpoint and it’s all subjective as well.

Re: New Old Amp Day: Quad

How close would you say the Quad modded to c++ sounded to your c++ head?

Re: Simul Class C+

Fairly good thread here discussing some of the differences. https://www.rig-talk.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=124080 So if I got this right DRG: Class A: All tubes in Class A (4 x 6L6 or 2 x 6L6 + 2 EL34) Simulclass: Inner pair class A/B, outer pair Class A HRG: 60w: 2 tubes in Class A/B (2 x 6L6) ...

Re: Simul Class C+

I could be way off as I’m no expert on the nuances of the transformers but I think the raving is about the simulclass in general whether switched to Class A or Simul. The tone that poweramp provides is different to a 60, 60/100 etc irrespective of the setting. I haven’t heard an SRG or HRG in person...

Re: New Old Amp Day: Quad

JO - did yours have as much gain as I’m describing which LD set at 3? Just trying to understand if it’s stock or modded.

New Old Amp Day: Quad

A Quad preamp became available local to me at a decent price so I picked it up. Am very very happy with it so far and It is much better than I thought it would be. It does sound a bit different to my c+ but that is expected as I've not yet run it through the c+ powersmp which I'll test out at a late...

Re: What is your thoughts on Cab Clone?

It’s been a while since I checked but, unlike the standalone unit, I don’t think it’s possible to get a non simulated signal front he JP cab clone. So if you process into your DAW and then and an IR you’d be doubling the cabinet simulation. I’m not sure how much the TAE is but if you need a recorded...

Re: What is your thoughts on Cab Clone?

Agree with the comments so far. It depends on your use. The cab clone in the jp sounds good with a cab actually connected to the speaker out. When run passive without a speaker connected it doesn’t sound as good but agree that you should give it a go before buying an external. I use mine mostly for ...

Re: Switching Options for Mark V90?

Don’t the 4 external switching jacks on the PCB10 switch the Mark V channels? Are they relay switches? If so you should be able to I would’ve though. I was able to set this up on the V with the TC GMajor 2.

Re: Settings to improve guitar volume control

it definitely has less gain at the same Tonestack settings but it does sound inherently more powerful, and has the gain if you crank Gain and Treble controls.

But agree, the name suggests just crazy levels of gain.

Re: Settings to improve guitar volume control

I’m sure there are great options using ch1 and 2, but this is the best example I’ve found from channel 3. Agree with previous posts that you may get the best result out of Extreme mode. Whenever I’ve tried c+ or IV mode it just didn’t do the trick.

Re: Mark V 90: no bass response?

This sounds typical to me - you should try the saturation mod (12AT7 in v4 and/or v6, as you like). Next to the more elastic overtone feel comes the ability to open up the presence, which will result in a better bass response. The IIC+ mode is given in the 'non-deep' configuration. The IV mode is g...

Re: Mark V 90: no bass response?

Hi Agree to APEMAN’s point - the Mark V c+ mode was modelled off the non-GEQ c+ which had a smaller cap at the end of the circuit. This acts as a high pass filter so it naturally does not have a lot of bass. The GEQ can be used more aggressively to compensate. The IV mode has the larger cap if I rec...
