Re: Boogie Mark V brown sound

Thank you guys! Well... I've always hated channel 2 until now. Sounds much more Marshally now with these settings. I've always thought both Crunch and Edge were thin and wimpy sounding. Who know zeroing out the bass would have done the trick, lol. However, I'm getting more hot-rodded AC/DC than Van ...

Re: JP2C doing VH

Thanks man, my feelings exactly. I wish I hadn't picked a VH tune actually as people elsewhere seem to have focused on that aspect. Thanks for your constructive points and I couldn't agree more.

Re: Don't forget about the clean channel

I use the clean channel about 20% of the time, ch.3, 30% & ch.2, 50%. I have my clean dirtied up so that when the guitar volume is all the way, it gets kind of meaty to where ch.2 picks up from there at half volume on the guitar. Ch.2 has the gain at 9-10 o'clock pushed in. Ch.3 has the gain at 3 o...

JP2C doing VH

I wanted to compare my basic rhythm sound with the one I had three years ago, so I created this comparison. The track is Van Halen's Aftershock. First half: Suhr Modern Pro - Boogie JP-2C - V30 - SM57 Second half: EVH Wolfgang - EVH 5150 III - Greenback - SM57 Verb added in Logic https://soundcloud....

Re: JP-2C vs. Mark V - an alternate view

I don't know whether this helps or hinders anybody (it certainly undermines my original post) but I finally replaced the V today with a second JP-2C. It's just so perfect for me - I loved the V but this just fixes all the minor niggles I had and it's smaller, neater and simpler and runs cooler with...

Re: JP2C + Mark V = redundant?

I have both and I'm very pleased I do. The JP is bigger, bolder, yet furrier/crunchier and slightly less immediate. It has surprising versatility within its subset of tones and its push/pull knobs are incredibly well-thought-out. The MIDI control and the lack of superfluous features just seal the de...

Re: Boogie Mark V brown sound

Really like this. Thanks. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: I was thinking of grabbing a Marshall pedal of some type to get that flavor with the Mark V a little more, but this satisfies that. Thanks!! Glad I could help. I'm still loving the V and gigging with these settings all the time. I've been lazy on the cl...

JP-2C vs. Mark V - an alternate view

Hi guys. Picked up my JP-2C around three weeks ago and wanted to let it sink in before I shared my thoughts. I love it! What a magic little box. So small and neat yet insanely powerful and punchy. The flexiblility is perfectly judged - I can get the clean channel (which is exquisite) to break up jus...

Re: Live recording - tweed this time

Hi, hope you don't mind me butting in. How do you find the MOTU? Just curious as I'd like to upgrade my simple home recording setup at some point in the future and have always looked at these on eBay. They have ADAT right? I already have the Behringer ADA 8000 that I use with current interface so w...

Here is the signal chain: Suhr Modern Pro Boogie Mark V MESA Rectifier 2x12" Shure SM57 (close miked where the dustcap meets the cone) Interface (...

Thank you!

Are you using the GEQ for your crunch sound?
Thanks. Yes, classic Boogie V with the top two flattened off a bit. No EQ on the clean channel.

Re: More Mark V live - shred time!

Thanks dude. Settings are explained here http://forum.grailtone.com/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=72170

For this recording I mic'd my MESA 2x12" though. It's V30-loaded and the mic was an SM57.
