Re: Any Boss Pedals work in the JVM Loop?

My DD3 was distorting a bit on the loop, I replaced it by a Carbon Copy and am very happy with it.

Re: Ditching the JVM

Curiously enough, I never felt the need of using pedals with the JVM except perhaps a TS in front for some modernities, and I love using it at home. Totally different experiences ....

Good luck in your tone journey!

I got rid of all my actives (maybe it comes with aging) but when had them, at 7.5V or So replaced the batteries.

Re: Looking at upgrading tubes, not sure what to buy?

I second that. I made an small investment on tubes to get some quality stuff, a while ago, and that is enough .... overpriced stuff = snake oil.

Re: Sold my JVM & got an Axe-Fx

In thinking ahout it, this is what I find interesting. We listening to recording artists and we go out and buy guitars, amps, and gear in an attempt to sound like the tones we have heard and like. We setup, play, and wonder why our rig doesn’t sound like the tones we are trying to replicate” “WTF! ...

It is on sale but I don't accept any bargaining, I guess (hope) nobody will bid for it so I can keep it [smilie=icon_mrgreen.gif]

Re: Can Pedal power supplies cause noise in the signal

You will most likely get ground loops, specially if the outputs of the supply are not isolated and you feed with it pedals both in front and in the FX Loop.

Re: Sold my JVM & got an Axe-Fx

Totally fair. I occupy the space somewhere between the new tech recording process and the old school pro studio. I run a small home studio where I record myself and others. I'm fortunate to not be restricted by noise considerations. If some band just insists on drum sample replacement or amp sims, ...

Re: Sold my JVM & got an Axe-Fx

Yes you are totally right on that point. The music offering is so huge nowadays because that accessibility that has turned into an almost impossible task to find new stuff that catches your ears. On the other hand it made a bunch of good artists to have a chance to get exposure, but it is a minority...

Re: Sold my JVM & got an Axe-Fx

Well I disagree with you. Even if I think there is a number of people that really live music like you describe, there is also a lot of them that do it the old school way, or in any of the countless mixed possibilities. I just cannot record or jam with a proper plexi sound at home without turning dea...

Re: Sold my JVM & got an Axe-Fx

I am really considering selling all my tube amps after 3 months with the Axe FX III. I am a bedroom player 100% and it is the solution best suits my needs. So far sold the cabs, still keep the heads basically due to sentimental reasons, but when compare them thru the Reactive Load with the models, I...

Re: Sold my JVM & got an Axe-Fx

Hi, after a couple of months with the AxeFx, I cannot be happier. I sincerely think it is not the typical self justification of an expensive gear, just an honest conclusion. I own three 100W Marshalls and two 4x12s, and barely play guitar thru them anymore. As a bedroom player, that gadget is extrem...

Re: Sold my JVM & got an Axe-Fx

Got it! I haven't had any other of the previous iterations of the machine but this III is unbeliavable. My fear was that, not being a great tone dialer, it would cost me lots of time to get nice sounds .... far from reality, it is really easy. Yet no plans to sell my Marshall heads, but being mostly...
