    Tube Tone from a Tube Pedal into the Axe FX II

    I have always done this, restore "real" amp feel with passives. Not usually looking for tone. The axe can handle that. The axe feel is great but not the same. I have been ABing this way since I got my axe2 which was first batch. Maybe mkii are better in this regard. Study up on the...

    Very specific noise gate theory/questions...

    previous to the axe i always used a gate before the amp, and a noise supressor in the loop. silent and powerful. gate the guitar, suppress the gain staging hiss. beware the nomenclature, for instance the BOSS ns2 says suppressor on it but it is a gate! choose by circuit function, not name.

    Ugh the "creationists" of the guitar world... Cables make a difference. Period. It is understanding how/when that eludes guitarists which leads to many arguments on the issue. Here is the straight dope: All shielding issues aside, well assume the cable is shielded and not noisy...

    Axe FX II + Tube Amp help?

    I prefer, Global power amp sims off. Speaker distortion minimum, transformer distortion minimum. Set axe output to taste for power amp distortion. In the advanced settings change the power amp filtering of the highs and lows to 20/20. Let the real power amp define the cutoffs. Set...

    Matrix vs. Tube poweramp

    2/90/2 pretty neutral. Decent thump, not as much as a full size head. I went up to the 2150 and the full size transformers yield full size tone. Smaller iron sounds smaller.
