    Small Amp VS Big Amp (15W EL84 vs 60W 6L6/EL34)

    Hey guys, I'm a huge fan of the laney Ironheart amps. They sound HUGE! I love how raw the upper midrange and treble frequencies sound in combination with those fat lows. The clean tones are really great too! I've been wanting to make a couple 'Small Amp VS Big Amp' videos for a while and I...

    Comparing 8 tube amps using my LB-2 and Axe Fx III...

    Interesting! I thought it was kind of based on his live Mesa sound but this amp has much more mids than my Recto as you can hear in the video. Yeah, it's so killer! Thanks! I really enjoy doing those comparisons but imho it gets a little tricky when my amps have different power tubes and...

    Hey dudes an dudettes! The Axe Fx III is the brain and centerpiece of my studio. I use it for amp modeling a lot but it also functions as my main sound card device so I always record via USB. Together with the LB-2 it works so well with my tube amps. It's so easy to get great tones with my real...

    Thanks, I do appreciate it and I think you're right! It's funny, a while back I made a comparison video of my 13 tube amp heads.

    For Chad: The Metallica Live Tones

    Tom who used to work for Digitech explained in a video that it's just an octave above for each string. That's why they called it '12 string effect' rather than '12 string simulator'. Maybe I'm wrong though. Either way, it's a great pedal but you can definitely get pretty close with the Axe Fx.

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Version 5.03

    Just tried the new amp (I could still install via Fractal Bot). Very interesting amp indeed! Nice and dry with big growly mids.

    LB-2 with 120 watt amps?

    I know the manual states that I shouldn't use amps that have a higher wattage than 100 watts. But what if I only turn up the master to say 3-4? Will I still hurt the LB-2 and/or the amp if I don't max out the master volume? Has anyone tried the LB-2 with amps that have a higher wattage than 100?

    Question about a setup idea (with tube amp and LB-2 in loop)

    When I turn down the guitar itself there is still hum present. I guess it should be fixable with humbuster cables then! Would I need to only have two humbuster cables in front the amp and after the loadbox to fix this?

    Question about a setup idea (with tube amp and LB-2 in loop)

    hmm, I've been getting hum unfortunately when using the amp and loadbox in the loop. The hum goes away when I plug my guitar in the front of the amp instead of the front axe fx input. The ground/lift switch in the loadbox is pressed in because there was a loop going on, not a hum loop but rather...
  86. Guitarjon

    Question about a setup idea (with tube amp and LB-2 in loop)

    It's working!! I did have to press the gnd/lift button on the back of the LB-2 to get rid of a feedback loop but it does sound great! There is also another multi effect pedal in a different loop which I can also enable and place anywhere I want to in the chain. Good stuff!

    Good question! I did in fact A/B the amp with the loop on and off because a few guys told me that the amp sounds worse with the loop on.
