Re: Cornford vs Soldano - UNCHAINED

The second clip sounded better, though you sounded more comfortable with it, like it was easier for you. There was a little more gain to the clip, though.

Re: Footswitch cable

It actually doesn't matter. IME, I can never have enough cables for jams or gigs. There's always something going awry with them. Don't worry about getting the best on the market, or the highest price. You need to have a good selection of cables for a variety of situations. The footswitch is the leas...

Re: Fx loop basics

You definitely need to engage the loop using your front panel or footswitch. If that does not correct the issue, we can help. The Db switch alters the level of signal routed to the loop. Most pedals require the lower -10Db setting, most rack effects require the +4Db setting. Weird distortion could o...

Re: Chorus and delay recommendations?

I don't use delay, so I can't help you there, but I'll chime in about the chorus. For years, I used the almost universally loved Boss CE-2 MIJ, but that really coloured my tone. After trying a few replacements, I arrived at the Diamond Halo Chorus. The mix knob is ideal for making the effect subtle....

Re: JVM410H VS JVM1H-Youtube video

Nicely done, thank you.

The JVM1 clean seems to have a little more gain than the JVM4 clean green, just an observation. It may match up with orange or red. Certainly you did a great job getting the tone settings to match up. Were they very far off on the dial settings?

Re: How do you keep people away from your pedalboard/FOH gea

My approach is to plan ahead and bring nothing that is likely to be damaged. I've found that the smaller the venue, the more drunk and rowdy the crowd can be. If they're that drunk, they won't appreciate the nuances of boutique pedals and rack effects anyway.

The white logo ECC83 is a Shuguang with no selection. Rather unremarkable in my opinion, but not unreliable. The red labelled valves are JJ and are much preferred around here for gain stages.

Re: I've lost my blue glow!

I think you should get those valves to a tech or a store with a tester. Getting the amp checked out by a tech would not be a bad idea. Blue glow is normal, but if you notice a change, then something may be awry. Popping noises or rumbling might be a symptom of valves near the end of their useful exi...

Re: Hi-end Vocal mike comparo

Very interesting indeed. Although all of those mics are out of my price range, I'm intrigued by the differences among the choices available. Thanks for the link.

Re: Line Out... how do you guys make it sound better

I find that the DI is so hot that most mixers will not accommodate it unless the channel volume is around 2 to 2.5. Adjusting the mid centre frequency, if you can on that mixer, can help dial it in for you. I usually turn the treble down and the mids up a notch or two. If you cannot get the level do...

Re: Jvm 410c Vs Tsl 122 Clean

Which clean mode are you having trouble with? My friend has a TSL100H and I'm quite fond of it. You could get a fair approximation of the clean with Crunch Green using a moderate to low gain level. I tend to use Clean Orange with gain just above 6 for my clean tones. At low volumes I find myself str...

Re: What do you think of the sound? German Rockcore

Sounds great to me. A little surprising that your recorded it at low volume. Your palm mutes come across a little muddy with the gain so high, though. Some great tunes there, I don't speak German, so I can't comment on the lyrics, but they sound awesome.
