    Pedal jack on back of axe?

    So the manual says the pedal jack accepts a std guitar cable for a switch, or a trs for a pedal. Can it be configured to be 2 switches if a trs is used (ala e boss fs-6 dual pedal)? I have the opportunity to use my axe acoustically but there is ZERO stage room, so I will barely be able to fit...

    Organ-ish sustain assistance?

    What's up. I'm working on a rock organ-ish patch....using octave up and down as well as rotary and a plexi to get the slightly distorted sound (like deep purple used to run his keyboards through an amp if I'm not mistaken to get the crunchy tone) It sounds great, but one thing i love about a...

    Global Effects ROCK HARD!!!!!

    Apologize for the long post, but this just was awesome!!!! So, I had a dilemma. I converted my 4x12 cab into a stereo cab, with 2 vertical 2x12's(all in same 4x12 shell mind you). And I was very unhappy with the sounds of my Axe II through it. Sounded great in mono, great in stereo through...

    Editing Mark Day's HBE patch question

    So, I dig mark's patch a lot for leads(is one of 2 goto lead patches actually), but i don't like using it as is for Rythym playing due to the delay. But when i turn off the delay, it shoots the volume up substantially due to their being three levels of effects Delay thru Reverb How would I go...

    So, just got my axe II. Plugged it into my newly re-wired Stereo Cab ( Carvin 4x12 with a control plate with 2 jacks, selector switch, hooked up correctly, 99.99% sure) The sound is bad, very harsh treble,not much bass response, just sounds poor (cab sims off, PA sims on with Art SLA-2)...

    question about PA Speakers in general, not just Axe, but vocals too?

    So, I'm looking into buying a stage PA Speaker. The main use will be for an acoustic duo i'm re-starting up and will be the single main for small gigs. The secondary use would be great if it also worked well with the axe for FRFR. My stupid question: Do the same features and benefits that...

    Trouble dialing in tone through FRFR, just a little venting

    So, I've had my Axe for the whole of 5 days now. It took me less than 20 minutes to get superb clean, classic rock dirty, and classic rock lead tones built up when running through my basic set-up. (cab sims off) Axe => EHX 44 Magnum power amp => 2 Mesa 1x10" cabs in parallel. (L out copied...
