My JVM growls at me

I play a lot through my Marshall Code 50 amp, but whenever I splurge and turn on the big dawg, JVM410H, the thing seems like it is growling at me. The distortion differences between the two is quite noticeable. I know the Code 50 is supposed to be a modeling amp, but I can’t get the distortions out ...

Re: Hello from Circleville, Ohio

More to the nice little story: I did it, I boxed up that LTD guitar that my buddy in Michigan liked and dropped shipped it to him in Ypsilanti, MI. I never play it, I'm to hung up on my ESP's and play them constantly. The LTD just collects dust and string changes. I told my buddy that I was sending ...

Re: A Happy Story from Circleville, Ohio

A Happy little story: So my friend from Michigan gets outta prison, all he's got is a few clothes, a gang box, with personal items, a Behringer electric guitar, a tape player, and a few wires to hookup the guitar to the tape player for a clean channel. Hey, the dude's been in for 10 years. I finally...

Re: Hi from Tennessee!

Ditto to that, man. The JVM is all BEAST stock, no mods!!! There are plenty of channels to hone your sound. You can get all the levels of Marshall out of it!! I just added a few effects to the effects loop for solos, you know: chorus, delay, harmonizer, flanger, eq, and a wah on the front of the amp...

Re: Help in playing faster

Hello: Great suggestions and sound advice all over the board. The number one thing to speed is practice, practice, practice!! Take a lick from a fast guitar player and learn it, of course it will be hard at first, but you have to train your hands to move like that, and keep your movements small, lik...

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.

BOSS NS2 and other equipment

I just bought the Boss NS2 Noise Suppressor for my JVM410H, I've tried it out in front of the signal chain, and in the fx loop, and found that it works better out in front of the signal chain along with the wah, compressor, and tuner. Has anyone else had these results, I wire, from the guitar, the w...

Re: When do you call your 9 volt battery for your active pick-ups dead?

Update: I just did my 3 month maintenance to my number 2 ESP E2 M2 Urban Camo Guitar in which I installed new Procell 9V Battery in back in December, I took a voltage reading and it had 8.94 volts, which is excellent for 3 months worth of use. I’ve been to the studio, practices, and played a lot at ...

When do you call your 9 volt battery for your active pick-ups dead?

So when do you replace your battery for your pickups? Wait til the middle of a show and your sound craps out due to poor maintenance on your guitar? I’ve been reading up on this and the consensus says the 9 volt battery starts to go dead at 80% of its voltage capacity, that’s 7.2 volts. I guess you ...

Re: Can Pedal power supplies cause noise in the signal

Update: The sound was coming from the daisy chain pedal supply chord, once I changed that everything changed. There must have been a short in the cable, I’ll have to hook up my handy dandy megger to it and check it, but once I swapped for a new one”poof’ noise gone. Now I can start putting pedals ba...

Re: Floyd Rose’s noiseless springs

Update: one thing I do notice on guitar #1, the guitar with the noiseless springs, is that when you make a quick stop while playing, it’s utter silence. No ringing, no humming, no machine noise, nothing. On guitar # 2, which is still stock, you have that little bit of machine noise, ringing when you...

Re: Floyd Rose’s noiseless springs

Update: I burned the money(16.99) and bought the noiseless springs from Floyd Rose. Installation was easy just used my handy dandy multi tool Gerber pliers to remove the old springs one at a time and install a new one in its place. Be prepared to make a few adjustments when installing new springs ca...

Floyd Rose’s noiseless springs

Have any of y’all used the noiseless springs on your Floyd rose tremelo system and noticed a difference in sound and quality of sound? They claim these noiseless springs take all the spring noise out of your tremelo system and give your guitar a crisp, clean sound. Well I bought a set of the standar...
