Re: Best Method of changing premap tubes

That is what I wanted to know. Thanks. I was trying to find out if you could get to the tubes by removing the grille cloth. You can't on the V, and I didn't want to try on the Jp-2C unless I knew it was possible.

Re: Best Method of changing premap tubes

OK, well, I will answer my own post in case it helps anyone else. First, the tube layout is in the JP-2C allows easier access to the preamp tubes. V1, for example, is not stuck behind a transformer. I only needed to remove three power tubes to gain access to all the preamp tubes. I placed the head u...

On my Mark V, I generally remove all power tubes, then squish my hand around the transformer to get to V1. Not fun, but doable. The J...

Re: PRS Torero... is it worth looking into?

I have an Esp Eclipse II and an EC-400. MesaENGR412 has it right. The Eclipse neck is not as wide at the nut. The Eclipse neck is the more rounded C as opposed to the Torrero' more oval shape. Also, the Eclipse II has 22 frets and thr Torero and EC-400 both have 24 frets. Also, the Torero is much he...

Hi, I just picked up one of the new model Toreros in scarlet red. Fantastic guitar. It feels really nice to play. It has one of the most comfortable necks necks i have ever played. I also have an ESP KH-2. I performed the 18 volt mod on it. Personally, i don't hear a big difference in either headroo...

Re: Nova System or G-Major II?

: :?: How many relays does it have? Are there any glitches between presets? Can you turn off individual effects and use the Bank buttons for preset changes? Does the delay spill over? Can one of the CTL buttons be used for Tap Tempo? Since you had the G-major 2, you know it will do all of these thi...

I use the LPS in the PI position in all my amps. Buy them from The Tubestore or Doug's Tubes. Better price and better service.

Re: Nova System or G-Major II?

I have both. For a rack setup with a switching system like an RG-16, I prefer the G-major 2. The nova system cannot do the for cable method. If you want to use the drive, you have use the guitar input, which means all other effects, like delay and reverb, will be before distortion. Use the line inpu...

Re: triple rec and mark iv together

Just use the Radial JS-X 2 switchbone. It will solve the phase problem and any ground issues.

If you want to switch via midi, use the RJM Y-Not. It also has a phase switch. I have both and both work flawlessly.
