Re: FX loop 101

I hope this picture can help you As you can see, an amp is made up of two parts, a pre-amp and a power amp. In short, the preamp dictates the overall sound of your tone i.e gain, eq and general shape... ...and the power amp pushes it through speakers loud enough so you can hear it. somewhere along t...

How is YOUR Roadster set up?

As the title questions, just wondering how you have your Roadster set up channel-wise. Just looking to get ideas for other ways i can get meat out of this beast. Love the tone but because there are so many options, i feel like i'm not using it to it's potential. Here's mine: Channel 1 - Tweed/Diode/...

Re: MFX Suggestions for Roadster

Yeah I have a G Major. But i want a programmable od in front of the amp. I'm also wanting to get away from rack stuff. I know what i'm like and it all starts with 1RU of gear then you end up with your amp in a case with 12RU worth of other stuff. too much hassle. I may just go the M13. Line 6's effe...

Re: MFX Suggestions for Roadster

yeah i get what you're saying about the focus on amps instead of effects....but thats why i ws looking at the M13 as it's just a stompbox modeller instead of amp stuff.....If the G system had the type of effects that Line 6 have, it would be a clear winner. Or if someone can tell me if the M13 will ...

Re: MFX Suggestions for Roadster

Yeah i was thinking of going the digitech route as well, but i want to steer clear of rack. Been and done and i treasure my back too much to go back to lugging a rack around. Jeez the roadster head is heavy enough. And the harmonizer effects to me sound more organic before gains. post gain, they hav...

MFX Suggestions for Roadster

Hey folks. Just thought i'd pick some brains regarding multi fx units that everyone's using. :twisted: I'm on this little hunt for a floor-based processor that can give me my comps, od's, phasers and pitch shift/harmonizing before my preamp, then time/modulation based effects afterwards. Obviously m...

Re: the roadster in the operating theater.

wait, wait, wait.........

i know this thread is old, but...

you're saying you might want to sell your amp because you don't know how to open it up to stick your hands in there and see what it's made up of?

these are the people i love to buy stuff from...i'll take your roadster for a grand...

Re: Roadster needs more gain!!

haha yeah i guess you're all right....dunno about MrMarkIII, though haha :wink: I just hate fiddling with pedals and such. I came from a TriAxis based rack with a Line 6 Spider Valve mkII (VERY good amp for the price btw) to the roadster which i'm glad i did. I'd forgotten what a 'real' AMP feels li...

Re: Roadster needs more gain!!

haha i knew someone would say that. It IS on ten and not hot enough. I'm running Dimarzio Tone Zones, Steve's specials and Air Nortons and my volume is up pretty loud. the notes just feel a little choked and i like the feel of effortlessly tapping. I'm thinking of a flat boost pedal or an overdrive ...

Roadster needs more gain!!

Hey guys. I'm loving my Roadster head so far (about 2 months), although channels 1-3 are fantastic, i feel i need a little bit more gain on channel 4. My lead tone has always had an over the top gain vibe about it (ala steve vai) to the point when playing at rehearsal volume, i get feedback when i s...
