Re: Sold my JVM & got an Axe-Fx

I see no reason to hate on the Axe-Fx. If it sounds good, then it is good. Don't even second guess it. I'm just a traditionalist. I like tubes. I like seeing them in the back of the box, cooking away. Hearing the different sounds and feel they impart when the master volume is turned up. Experimenti...

Re: Sold my JVM & got an Axe-Fx

haha that is so true, the other day I made the experiment of comparing my 80´s JCM800 thru a reactive load against the Axe model, same cab, it was so close ... the modeled head is said to be a bit bright, and a 50W, and those details were clear on the comparison. To me the tube thing is cool from t...

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 Lol. Erpece nailed it. Doing that would let you easily compare the amp model to the real thing and would remove the near field mic issue. That is a setup that I would only ...

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! I...

Re: Sold my JVM & got an Axe-Fx

amp modeling, no cab sims AxeFx -> Seymour duncan Powerstage-> either a Jcm800 2X12 cab or a Mesa 2 2X12s So you may not be an FRFR guy. An IR is not a capture of the entire audio field produced by a guitar cabinet, it is a capture of a small audio sample... a small location within that audio field...

Re: Sold my JVM & got an Axe-Fx

have had several rehearsals now and I've tried both of my cabs. Back to using my JVM with the Axe FX in 4CM mode so I can take advantage of all of my effects. Maybe using FOH at some gigs will make me revert back but in rehearsals the band overwhelmingly likes the JVM over the Axe FX modeling. Were...

Re: Best Way To Use a JVM 410H With an External Stereo Power Amp

You could use 4CM to integrate your Axe in front of and in the loop of the JVM then come out the Pre-Amp Out/Send to your external power amp. The power amp insert is just before the master controls in the amp circuit. That should allow you to hit the channel tone stack that sits between the pre-amp ...

Re: Sold my JVM & got an Axe-Fx

@mohi is pretty much spot on with the bedroom player thing. You can get that cranked plexi sound at bedroom volumes. Plus you have a metric shit ton (everyone knows a metric shit ton is a lot more than an standard shit ton [smilie=icon_mrgreen.gif] ) of amp models and cabinet simulations. Pretty muc...

HJS Trifecta

Got my new HJS in February 2018. After several weeks with the amp I was playing when there was a loud pop and sizzle then no output. Took the amp to local Marshall authorized repair center. An output tube had gone, taking the HT fuse with it. A couple days later I got the amp back after they had rep...
