Any amp that is G3'd should be extremely close.I have my 6505+ sitting at home right now. Running it into a Koch load box and out to the Axe which I then use to load up an IR of my original 5150 cab. This morning I have been A/B between my actual amp and the new G3 Model of it (PVH 6160II), and man, I can't hear any difference. This is amazing. In fw 17 the amp model was nice but it just never seemed to get close. Gonna come back to this tonight and see if it still sounds the same or if it's all just an auditory hallucination.
See wiki amp list.ups ... just noodling through some Amps ... falling over the Splawn Quick Rods ... last time i visited them i remember 3 gears. Now we`ve 6 (OD1 / OD2). Did i miss something or are they new? On the manufactor site it says: 3 modes with rythm/lead (gain station) per gear mode... any mods to get something similiar like the clean channel from the Quick Rod? Just less Input Trim/Gain, but more Master or something?
They make the Quickrod in both versions. Maybe the one Cliff has for G3'ing is the EL34 version?Spawn's Tube Type = EL34/6CA7.
Shouldn't that be KT88?
Negative feedback: 1.88 - was 1.00
LTriode1 Plate Frequency: 2199 Hz - was 4000hZ
LTriode2 Plate Frequency: 40000Hz - was 7800hZ
+ some other parameters have changed as well
Our reference amp has EL34s. Many default parameters will change when a model is ported to G3. Don't expect things to be the same.
Oh, OK.They make the Quickrod in both versions. Maybe the one Cliff has for G3'ing is the EL34 version?
I did notice the presence knob difference, everything else, on my amp anyway, seems super close. Thanks very much for you and your teams constant work.Any amp that is G3'd should be extremely close.
One caveat is that the Presence and Depth controls may not match the taper of the actual amp. On most amps the Presence control does nothing until you turn it almost all the way up. This seems a bit silly so we make the Presence behave more logically. Same goes for the Depth control. Drive, Bass, Mid and Treble will match the actual amp within the tolerance of the pots. Another caveat when comparing amps: many times the knobs aren't "centered". IOW if you put the Treble knob at noon it isn't actually at 50%. You can see this by turning the knob all the way down and all the way up. It may not be symmetrical. This happens when the pots don't have a flat spot and/or the pot is rotated within the mounting hole. Or in the case of an SLO100 it is intentional. On an SLO100 all the way down is around 8:00 and all the way up is 6:00 so 50% is around 1:00 not noon.
No. I always wait until Axe Edit catches up before I load new firmware.Am I the only one still on 17.04? I thought I'd wait for the completed version of 18.00, but all of these stories of amazing tone are making it difficult. Very tempted just to bite the bullet and download.
