    Problems with my new AXE-FX III: It sounds too good!!!

    90 dB would provide a more accurate representation.

    Does any know how to program the Fender Deluxe ( with out any breakup) High Headroom..

    What unix-guy said; but also consider using the Twin Reverb instead.

    What is your favorite single cut?

    That, or a Tokai Love Rock. There's a lengthy thread on one of the LP forums about a burst fake - if I remember correctly one of the giveaways was the truss rod access; I think it showed evidence of being a Burny. Edit: here is the thread mentioned -...

    What is your favorite single cut?

    I have a few Gibson reissues, and an LP Standard. The Standard is a nice guitar, but definitely doesn't match the reissues IMHO. It's going on the block. I also have various PRSi - including a DGT and a McCarty 594. I don't think they sound or feel exactly the same as a good reissue. This is...

    Insert Presets Function

My litmus test has been to select a Fender Deluxe or Twin with a typical IR, crank up the volume to something close to rehearsal volume and strum the strings with a solid sweep, but muted with the left hand. An amp gives a...

    To Pull This Off at Age 69 Is Incredible

    I need that T-shirt that says "I may be old, but I saw all the great bands." Some of them several times. Kansas, Yes, ELP, Zep (their worst show, though - Tempe 1977), Queen, Rush, Renaissance, Fleetwood Mac, Journey, Heart, Deep Purple (once with Bolin, once with Blackmore, once with Morse)...

    Cygnus Beta - first impressions

    The following graph models my experience, and may model that of others as well. Re-label the y-axis as "delta tweak" and x-axis as "firmware version". In other words, the amount of tweaking has decreased considerably over time, to the point where I load new firmware, start playing, and enjoy the...
