Re: OK to leave the amp on STAND-BY for long hours?

Still, I wonder... I'm an old fart and I remember all these vacuum tube tv's and radio's of the day... None of them had a stand-by switch and they seemed to work just fine for decades. Right. How many amps from the 50s and 60s still work with just an on-off switch? A bunch. Many of them have an on-...

Re: Ditching the JVM

I'm going to go the other way and say that the JVM is probably the best big amp out there for using "at home". Of course, any 50/100 watt amp is going to sound better turned up loud. Duh. But the JVM's preamp structure and master volume is maybe the best in the business. In my experience, only the F...

Re: resistive Vs reactive loads effects on sound

In this case I'm not talking about it as part of an attenuator, but but just to load the amp, record it direct [ which is a horrible sound by itself ] then run it through a cab sim or IR after the fact. I made my own IRs. They sound pretty much the same to the mic-on-speaker source. But I never use...

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

Have had good reliability and tone from the better affordable tubes like EHX, Tungsol, and JJ. For example, speakers impact tone of amp much more than tubes. Goddamn yes. This can't be repeated enough. ^^^^^^^^^ Get tubes that work for the health and functionality of your amp. If you're dialing for...

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

Cool thanks guys, that's what I needed to hear, buy tubes that work, don't fall for the crazy, overly priced tubes. Any recommendations????? I've heard groove tubes are reasonably priced tubes. The internet is pretty divided on JJ tubes, but fuck them. I use JJs in everything , and I abuse all of m...

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

There are so many things that are way more important than tubes. Yes, tubes are important, but only insofar as they must work properly. For the same money that you'd spend on "holy grail" tubes, you can literally buy five great pedals, a whole set of speakers, several different pickups, a new guitar...

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

Is it worth it to drop all that money to get those special tubes, Hell no!!!!!! This tube madness is insane. You know what the best tubes are? Tubes that work. That's what you need. Just good quality tubes. There's no magical fucking tone hidden in overpriced tubes. You could take that same 700 dam...

Re: Sold my JVM & got an Axe-Fx

I had a BE-100 at home for a while that belonged to a friend and initially I was blown away by the souped up Marshall sounds it produced. It's a one trick pony and does that very well. Guess what - after a couple of weeks I got frustrated I could not really dial in an authentic classic ('inferior'?...

Re: Sold my JVM & got an Axe-Fx

But why on earth would you run an AxeFx JVM model through an actual JVM?

You already have a real JVM! WTF! smilie=icon_lol.gif

Re: Is this pedal order correct?

I would put all of that before the amp except for the delay. I don't know about the looper, I've never used one. But put the delay in the loop and the rest between the guitar and amp input.

Re: OK to leave the amp on STAND-BY for long hours?

Anyone know what the manufacturer's recommendation is on leaving the amp on Stand-by mode for long hours? During the weekends, I like to leave it on stand-by the entire day, so that I can play often w/o having to switch it on and off too many times. I also suppose that switching on/off also deterio...
