Hi1 on TA15 just ROCKS!

Post by Jakeboy » Mon Sep 03, 2018 9:39 am

I am loving the Hi1 channel in 5 watt mode on my TA15 a lot. I have a Marshall JMP1h and whilebthis sounds different, it is still a Marshally Tone. I find that if I turn the Gain knob down to 10--11, it sounds very JTMish. That makes a great pedal platform for an OD made for a Marshall, like a treble booster, or a Lovepedal OD11 which I recorded with yesterday. Speaker was a Red Fang alnico, but I find if I go with traditional Greenbacks on this channel, I get more grease and fat..,the ZZTOP sound just oozes out, especially with a Lovepedal COT pushing it.
I keep finding new uses for this amp, and new killer tones.

Just wanted to share. I love this amp.

Now OT, why isn’t this forum more active? I don’t get it. There are plenty of Boogie Users out there.
Did something happen at some point which wasted the forum?

Just curious.

The forum traffic (or lack thereof) is a mystery to me too. There are a lot of Mesa users out there.

Never used the TA-15. I have the TA-30, and love it.

Hey jake

Just tried that mode, it does sound fantastic :)

EDIT: I was on the Normal side (green LED) with the Top Bst switch engaged when I wrote the comment...awesome cleans..now playing with your mode, sounds great!

I love Green Vox Top-Boost channel too. The Red Fang was made for that channel. It has beautiful yet gritty cleans. Truly an incredible amp that can do anything it seems.
