I got it! Took me a few months and lots of trial & error but I think I finally found MY go-to settings. ... Now the hard part is being content with this tone and not trying to improve it at every gig LOL. Maury Hah! Maury, I've seen your clips on YouTube (nice). I like your attention to detail with...

Mountain - thank you but no matter where I set the FX level the comp just wasn't good. In my experience, compression and distortion through the FX loop pretty much never ever works. A clean boost can, but something about the signal going into an additional gain-enhancer within a loop just ain't hap...

What I would do is set the clean volume to match with CH 2 with the drive circuit on. When you turn off the drive circuit on ch2 (for that SRV tone you want) the volume will be too low on ch2. Use the clean boost on the effects loop to get that volume back. It's like adding another solo boost to th...

Q: Retrofit Lonestar Classic w/10 watt option?

I just got a Lonestar Classic 1x12; I got an amazing deal, a store return for a reduced price -- I feel like I won the lottery -- but it's probably also because it's a 2006 that had been on the floor for a while, and doesn't have the 10 watt setting. My amp tech friend says that retrofitting the 10 ...

I just got my LSC last month, having been a devout Marshall guy for a long time (but getting tired of dragging around the half-stack).
