If tone was holding me back i'd update, but I have a feeling the official release won't be far off.
If I deselect and select a boogie amp, will that change only the parameters that were adjusted with the FW upgrade, or will all the parameters default including tonestack?
BTW I tried loading a second boogie amp in one of my existing boogie patches, but the second one didnt have new values; the sag was still at 0% on the lonestar
That's not totally true.Maybe not relevant, but I think if you can't start from scratch with an amp for fear of losing a ton of intricate advanced settings, you might have the wrong amp to begin with. Of course I understand everyone's specifics are different, but resetting amps shouldn't be a huge headache, especially in Quantum.
Sure. That'd be the specific situation I referenced.That's not totally true.
Some people like to have a "Custom Amp" based on a specific amp Brand/Model, just like some people like to mod their real amps
I thought I noticed a good bit more thump in the MkIIc+!Mark I/II:
IMHO the Mesa models are the cat's fuzzy backside now...
Also check out the Carol-Ann models because they're just really good amps and sound even better now.
Yes, Lead 2 Yellow is supposed to sound the same as the IICX, IIRC, but I've always preferred the Yellow.Got to play with 3 a little bit last night, and that spitty nastiness is gone on the marks. man the triaxis yellow channel caught my ear, it's really thick sounding. Glad I spoke up even if some people took my meaning wrong. Bravo Cliff.
I have a Mark IIC+, a Mark IV, a Mark V and a Triaxis. They're all completely different. Mesa always says things like "sounds the same as a IIC+" but the circuits are different and, probably most important, the knob tapers are completely different.Yes, Lead 2 Yellow is supposed to sound the same as the IICX, IIRC, but I've always preferred the Yellow.
Easier to dial in too IMHO.
This happens with "real" amps too (and guitars, for that matter). One of the guys I toured with a few years ago kept going to Marshall amps and Gibson guitars for some reason...but he could never get the tone he was after. Eventually I had him play around with my Egnater MOD50, which had various modules based on Fender-type circuits, along with Mesa type sounds, Marshall, Vox, etc. He loved the Fender based ones (with 6L6s) the most. He went out and bought a Fender and loved it, and has been happy with it ever since. He then borrowed my Rick Kelly for a couple of months and ended up buying himself a tele. So what ended up working best for him was dramatically different than what he THOUGHT would work best for him.Sure. That'd be the specific situation I referenced.
But from helping people with their axe for 7+ years now, I know people grab a recto when they really want a Marshall, and change all the advanced parameters to get close to "that sound."
