First impressions... love the cleans, not sure about ch. 2. It's very punchy and articulate, perhaps not the voicing I was looking for. I don't know if it needs a retube but it doesn't suffice in the high gain department. Other vids I've seen of the std. version confirm this. It sounds kinda EVH-ish but more ballsy. I've read here on the Gear Page some say it requires a good od/boost on top for more saturated/fluid soloing, and that people like me should've been looking into the SE+ version instead of the std to begin with. I'll definately play around with it a bit more, but after that I think I'm going to be looking for an SE+. One question... can anyone give me any settings that would yield a smoother tone similar to Rob Marcello's leads? According to the website he used a standard version on "Too Many Notes". I just can't seem to dial out that crunchy aggression!!! I'm using a PRS Cu24 with HFS/VB pickups... just got it recently, so I'm not too familiar with the pickups. Maybe I should look into different ones? Other gear... Mesa 4x12 std recto cab (now called Stilleto) and a G-Major in the loop. Used to have a Fulltone FD2+mosfet 10th anniversary but sold it because I'm looking for a BB Preamp. Thanks!
