    EV PXM 12MP vs ATOMIC CLR w Pics

    I just sent one of my CLR power amps to be repaired. No upgrades (new power amps) available only repair to your unit. minimum of 90 day turn around. That's very poor service. I'm looking at the EV's myself.

    PreSonus AIR12 2-Way Active Sound-Reinforcement Loudspeakers

    Do you mean the PXM 12mp? or qsc k12? I haven’t heard the PXM 12MP to compare. From what I’ve read I would think it would be louder and more detailed than the Air 12. Probably definitely better for frfr speaker for the fractal products. The presonus are smooth and sound good for FOH applications...

    Axe-Fx Firmware Release Version 17.01 Release Candidate

    I’m not talking about impedance, some model could be incorrect, but it’s been discussed in length before that a fuzz won’t respond the same to a buffered input compared to the passive guitar pickups going directly into a fuzz. I don’t think this can be compensated for

    I have a prs sc245 57/08. Awesome guitar,however I can’t seem to bond with it. Nor past prs I’ve owned. I realized this past week why the bridge pickup never sounds right. The bridge pickup is located 1/4 inch closer to the bridge than my gibsons or fenders.

    The inconsistency of master volumes and their useable range being most generally from 2-3 has always been a pain in my posterior. Some were next to impossible to find the volume needed. From kazoo to blasting in the touch of a finger. Can’t say I’d want that modeled.

    Speaker Compression and Speaker Constant Settings Sweet Spots.

    I played with the speaker compression quite a while yesterday and wound up liking Marshall’s And Vox around 6, and fenders around 4.

    Speaker Compression and Speaker Constant Settings Sweet Spots.

    I wouldn’t think speaker compression would depend on master volume. Some amps are as loud with lower master volume than others with it cranked. As well as the efficiency of the speaker. A 20 watt will compress way more than a 100 watt. More like speaker dependent, and volume dependent. The...

    I put a warmoth roasted maple vintage modern on my Eric Johnson strat, totally different guitar the neck almost plays itself. feels and sounds so good! the stock necks are sticky, I guess it's the the finish. Frets seem good on it, but it just feels like it has honey on it.

    Axe-Fx III Firmware Release Version 12.10

    It may have more to do with the inconsistency in note inaccuracy from fret to fret on guitars. Tune your high E, then the 3rd fret and see what the tuner tells you. Compensated nut may help.
