thanks :) - going out there, on stage is for me - and what it is for others, doesn't matter - to create and be myself in the that moment. everything else dosen't matter. the sound and feel .. is always different, what my hands and mind do, is also different. the tools just makes it happen :) ...
depends on what kind of marshall i think .. and as always what we are used to hear from that type of marshall. then the other thing is removing myself from the in the room sound and feel, and going for controll room or trough pa feel.
for the classic 60's marshall sounds i live easily with the...
i run mine into a small mixer at the moment a mackie profx12 - from the mixer to pa and i use two qsc k10's as monitors also tapped from the mixer. i really miss a global eq on the 11r. i also run - if needed - a nylon string and steel string accoustic trough the mixer and sometimes a guitarsynth.
backwards, i run a digitech harmony man, pog2 and a echobaby in the loop - mono. these works just like it would with an amp to my ears. infront i use a modified ernie ball volume (buffer) usually. i have used a fulltone ultimate octave, klon, carb and bettie in front if the gig/sound needs it. i...
from my limitied experience, it is about the same without the noise gate. i prefer to not use it on any of them boxes, i ended up with an 11r. i feel i loose dynamics and openess with the gate engaged. it is also difficult, for me, to get controlled feedback with the gate in.
guess my perspective is different .. i use a klon or klon clone to boost especially singel coils into nw amps, i use a gaspedal version of the echoplex pre, with a loop, to boost up leads with delay. i use the echoplex pre for what it does to a lead tone, it will never take the place of a klon...
i have one, with a 1 x 12 cab with a blue - i changed to one i had around the house with a lot of hours on it.
play it a lot ... it gets better, just play it
hotcake for drive, is my choise. a lot of new contenders, still the ol' hotcake is working wonders for me with vox style amps, ef86's...
maxon ad-900 x2 - the 2 chip ones - my all time faves without modulation
dl-4 :facepalm still love it
lovepedal echobaby good one
ehx deluxe memory man
ehx memory boy - like this one a lot
... still i want to get a skreddy, love it - also the wampler faux...
great stomper :), i love ce-2's. my old one still gets back on the pedalboard when i am into a chorus mood, i usually prefer delays with modulated delays these days. or a clone of the old dimension d, i use a frommel one.
if i used it as a od/clean box, i ran it after volume, wah and fuzz. when i recorded with it, i pretty much ran it alone and added timebased fx in cubase. never had to use it as a back-up rig, but the plan was to put it after the pedalboard and go via a di box directly to the snake.
mostly based on gigging needs;
digitech harmony man, i have had 2 of these before :facepalm
volume pedal with buffer, needs tuner out - and the size of a cry-baby - would be nice with 4db boost too
echo with modulation, the skreddy and wampler are the first i gonna test.
