What we need here is some Thunderbird action from Simon Gallup and The Cure.....
Are those TB+ in there? BLASPHEMY!
Nice pic. Desktop material!
Need to take some with that wonderful glow going on. Off isn't nearly as cool.
Seems like it.
It sounds reaaaal nice with the Thunderbird and the only real fault I found is its slight sound cutoff while changing patches. I'm not crazy about the Enhancer and Chorus effects, but that's more related to personal taste. As for the rest, pretty easy to save/edit/change patches and banks. I'm switching between 2 sounds for now1) the factory patch bank 1/patch 1 and (2) using the master section as preamp (still tweaking the knob), natural compression with 10 and 1 oc settings and using the 3 pedals for effects, OD pretty much set on the natural setting. Still lots of tweaking left .
You can spend days figuring out various settings that sound cool. I've had one of these for over ten years. They are not expensive, but do have some really good settings and effects. I lot of bang for the buck. I was shocked how good some sounded. Something of a pain in the butt to figure out, but cool once you do. It's very versatile. Has an ungodly number of slots to save patches to. The Guitar sims are really good too. I leave it at home now, but I've used it as a preamp and DI before with good success. Would have no problem using it again either.
Hot damn, I'm IN !
Happy Toobsday .
Yes you are!
Never seen that one, looks quite comprehensive ?
I've been using a Zoom B3N for a couple of years as the core of my live set-up, after using individual pedals for more than 10 years. I got the Boss unit on a total whim, after talking about the guitar version to my guitar-playing brother. Disclaimer: I don't use effects that much, but like to have'em around.
All personal of course, but my long and costly trek through pedalboards and effects since 2008 led me to conclude that :
(1) I'm pretty much the only one who can tell the difference between this or that OD/Chorus/filter/whatever;
(2) There are no 100% ideal set-up, it's about the compromise you will/will not make and how long you're willing/not willing to make it;
(3) What makes it to my gig board has to be easily usable/functional/practical. No tiptoeing for this flat-foot.
Still, I love pedals .
Not saying you did this, but often when that happens, someone used an instrument cable instead of a speaker cable.
I'm extremely particular when it comes to cables-it must have a 1/4"(?mm)plug on each end.
EDIT: Prof. Google says 6.35mm
The smaller amps I’ve built (and most I’ve modded) typically have 220 ohm resistors across the output jacks. (Tube amps, of course.) That’s typically enough to save the output stage without impacting tone much, though I wouldn’t plug and unplug on purpose while the amp is on. Bigger amps just get shorting jacks. Not perfect but better than wide open.
piggybacking here, the resultant self-destruction is likely to include one or more of: blown output transformer, fried output tubes, and/or arc’d sockets. I’ve see this take out power supply components in extreme cases.
i tried to (Roto Baby Fingers Club), but after my callouses got more built up I had to jump ship it’s out there somewhere…
You just described my relationship with Cobalts.
I liked Chromes-a lot-'til @JJR58 turned me on to EBCFs. Lovin' them. These 50-105s are just what the quack ordered.
I need to go into business letting rich people throw money at me that way.
