    Hello my old fellow Fractalians long time no read.......as you know, I sold my AF2 Mk2 + MFC101 last summer. Bought a nice mountain bike instead so I can loose some weight. It has the same color as the AxeFx display ;-) Also put together my pedal board - yepp, it's true - I'm using a simple...

    Battery Change

    The unit only runs on battery when it's not used.....of corse, batteries have a limited life span but if you have your device since 2012 or so, I wouldn't really worry about it.

    I agree with you regarding low mids - the 250 - 400Hz range is essential! The high end or what some people call "chime" is important too, but it's very different to what most people know from other modern high gain amps. It's balanced....not just "too" present in the mix..... If you want to...

    Deluxe reverb model drive/gain?

    if you wish a bit more headroom for a Deluxe Reverb - use it with a 4Ohm Speaker instead of a 8Ohm by design. This would lower the primary impedance of your OT by half. This is what I call a "safe mismatch". You'll have less mids, a bit more clarity in the low and the highs as on the matched...

    Deluxe reverb model drive/gain?

    Most players prefer the Vibrato (should be named into Tremolo, because that's what it is) channel because of the reverb effect. This channel has one extra gain stage too ;) The normal channel is not bad, but if you bought a Deluxe "Reverb" you want to use the "Reverb" wouldn't you? ;) There...

    Difference between cab lo cut and amp speaker tab tone adjustments?

    no, the differences were between clean preamp and the OD circuit. Different signal divider network.....this can't be compensated with input trim because the d-concept is a clean preamp into OD not a booster stage into a preamp circuit as all other amps were designed. The clean preamp and the...
