    ey
    since my limit light comes on on my wt-600

    and it only really comes on when i am popping on the G string, would it be worth it to pick up one of those TC electronics compressor things??

    i think what it does is like u can set how loud u wont the notes to be or somethingsomone was telling me, so like, notes on my G string when popped wont be so loud, doing this, i think will stop my output limit light from coming on


    any suggestions

    Maybe you need an EQ?

    What cabs are you connecting to your head? could it be that maybe they are not allowing you to drive them at full power, e.g. impedance mismatch, so maybe driving the amp too hard to be heard? for example if the cab was an 8 ohm ACME, it'd sap alot of power and volume before it performs..so they say on TB.

    Possiblity I guess.. If you were gonna buy a compressor, TC gets the thumbs up!

    A compressor is what you need. A dbx 166x would work just fine. Of course, you'd have to know how a compressor works to get the settings right. However, it's no big deal thet you limiter light comes on every once in a while. That's what it's for.

    BTW, "u" is spelled "you." Also, sentences begin with a capital letter. or u can seem like an idiot, ur choice.

    Your question is not trivial. If Mr. Dood heeds my advice, he will be better for it. If he truly is illiterate, then he needs to consider where he wants to end up in the social spectrum. Tell me you've never judged anyone (say, me, for example). Haven't you already done that? I judged him for his pathetic spelling and grammar, and you're judging me for my apparent lack of tact.

    Well, it wouldn't be possible to get you on the base, unless you have top secret clearance with SCI access. If you try to come in from the back side, you will be detained and possibly incarcertated. Nosir, it's a bad idea. Even the President doesn't know everything that goes on out here. And that's all I can say, or I will be killed.

    A compressor will solve your problem just fine, and anything by TC electronics is quality gear, although whether it's right for you is, of course, subjective. I personally like my old Hartke's compressor circuit. This causes a problem, since I no longer own my old Hartke :meh:
