    Just because some of us tend to ignore, or make fun of, caustic comments does not, in anyway, suggest we endorse them. I was called a "political spin doctor". Other were called "dofus". The way you were treated should never have happened.

    I hope we can move on from this...

    Moody, thanks again for the links to your recommended threads. Honestly, they are way over my head in many cases but it's a learning process and good reading. Do you have a Thesaurus for all the terms?

    You, and anyone else who is interested, are most welcome. Indeed, there is a cornucopia of information lnked on Stumbo's wiki page there, literally something for everyone, I kid you not.

    I harbor no resentment.

    Linnin, if you ever see this, I’m sorry things got out of hand. No hard feelings.

    I use a TC Spectracomp. With the default setting and knob set to 9 o'clock it makes everything sound just a tiny bit more balanced and alive. I never shut it off and I wouldn't hesitate to buy another if needed.

    However my experience with compressors is very limited. All I can say is I love having a splash of it with my R500H and 210.

    I do exactly the same. Same compressor, same toneprint, same setting. Great minds think alike, it seems...;)

  15. Apparently there's compression built-in the Rumbles, when you press the Vintage button.

    There is also the always-on Delta-Comp Limiter, as described by manual excerpts in this Rumble Talk:

    While true, I dont believe its the same function or use case as an external compressor. The way I understand it is that its part of the internal signal path in the head, nothing you can really interact with and does not have the same impact on your signal as an external compressor would.

  18. I do believe you'd need to insert the external compressor in the effects loop to get the same response as the Delta-Comp.

    The Delta-Comp limiter is always on, and does provide some compression and sustain, but it is dependent on volume and how you play. That means that it’s part of the signature Rumble tone but not user-controllable in any real sense. For me, certain notes seem to ring out less clearly and die out more quickly in some rooms, and a good compressor like the TC Electronic SpectraComp helps even this out. The SpectraComp is also multi-band, which gives a very natural tone. You don’t really notice it until you turn it off.

    Hi guys, i'm searching for some help, i have a crazy idea: stop gigging with heavy, bulky head + cabs, and i really like the rumble tone, obviously the stage 800 should be the right choice, but what you think about studio 40 + in ear for gigs?
    anyone adopted this kind of solution?
    this way i should have only a very light, little amp, the in ear and the bass to take to a gig
