great summation - i’ve really loved my TC-100 and i suspect it’s because i feel most comfortable with marshall-based gain and eq. The TC has enough of that - but enough different from it that it feels additive to what I have.
i have been trying to stretch my boundaries more with a Mark V...
curious why you say that about H9 vs Strymon? I have been using a Timeline for a while and haven’t noticed any issues with gained up tones?
also, if you add dry into the wet cabs via not setting modulation pedals 100% wet, don’t you need to worry about phasing/latency issues between the dry...
i can see your logic.... i am even worse, as i have a couple of the anniversary ac30s too.
i picked up a vintage ac30, thinking i would sell the anniversaries - but they are so damn nice i now have 3 ac30s!
thanks for this - i have heard come complaints of having essentially 9 different amps vs being able to effectively channel switch (which you can only do across the 3 channels in one fixed mode for each channel vs being able to footswitch modes within a channel, correct?)?
regardless of modes...
Not to derail but how does the Mark V fit in to the type of tones we are discussing here?
I know it has some aspects that functionally make it completely different - but how does the nature and quality of similarly dialed in tones compare to the Fillmore and TC?
i am not sure tbh - i am getting a custom suede color and i ordered it some time ago. I would assume a new order might take some time - i try to generally be patient these days but i also like the TR guys a ton so it’s easier to be patient with them (plus, i have other cabs in the meantime)
the SSS is a larger head size - the matching 2x12 for it is slightly oversized compared to a traditional 2x12.
i have a SSS, as well, and I am waiting for its matching cab - Eli told me it sounds huge (as expected)! Lol
