    New Vintage Audio IRs

    Most IR makers use an a transparent power amp so the tone is as close to only being the cabinet being captured as possible. I'm sure someone like @York Audio can explain this a whole lot better.

    New Vintage Audio IRs

    Checked out the site and looked at the Mesa Traditional. The description says the captures were done with a 2:90 power amp, so my initial thoughts would be it is probably not ideal for the Axe with the power section already modeled in the Amp block. "...these IRs are captured with the monstrous...

    Wish Peavey Rockmaster Preamp

    I went from the 50/50 to a Mesa 2:90, and later a 2:50. I put 6V6 power tubes in the Mesas and found it was a good compromise between the EL84s in the 50/50 and the 6L6s in the Mesas.

    no distortion from IIC++

    By great, I meant plenty of gain (for me). Equal, or similar to all the other JP6 pickups I have used, but in your context, probably less gain than an EMG or D'Activator.
