    For those of you that own a Myasnikov, do any of them have FX loops?

    If not, how do you run time-based effects that you would normally run in the FX loop?
    I plan to use a Marshall 9100 power amp.

    Between the preamp and power amp. So you either need transparent fx units, or a mixer.

    Ah okay, I'm planning on using the same pedals that I currently use in the loop of my amp heads. So it sounds like I'd need a mixer.

    I got a GCX and a System Mix Plus, run all my preamps in the loops of the GCX, then into the mixer, and into a Lexicon for time based effects, back into the mixer to blend the dry signal with the effects. I used it primarily for home use with IR’s, so i just put the drives in front, but you could put them in the loops of a GCX or patch mate type unit. If you can score a System Mix used it has a ton of different uses.

    Same as the above, I’m using a Mark L’a (basically a CAE clone) and it works great. I’m using it wet/dry

    The System Mix Plus is a rare piece. Any other similar products out there?

    I've been looking at a bunch of Myasnikov preamps and would like to add one to my collection. Lots of great choices. I'm leaning towards the HBE.

    One more question for y'all. Did you message Oleg on FB to order, or shoot him an email?

    It’s been a couple years but I believe I messaged him. He was prompt at getting back to me.

    Nice! Mind doing some sound clips for us? Mobile phone quality would be enough. Myasnikov's own clips just sound so much worse than what the preamps are capable of.

    What’s the lead time on these?

    Are the prices on his site in USD and current?

    It just arrived today and I'll gladly do some clips, but it'll likely be this weekend 'til I have a chance.

    The price on the website's price sheet photo was current for the CCV. It was $450 USD plus $50 USD shipping.

    He happened to have a CCV in stock, and shipped it out the next day. Took about 8 days to arrive here in North Carolina. It was packed well, too.

    I'm going to do a real playthrough with some different guitars and video of the settings, but I thought I'd post this quick test I did to see how my Zoom sounded.

    Les Paul Classic w/ Wagner Iron Man in the bridge tuned to drop B
    Myasnikov CCV
    Marshall 9100 power amp w/ EL-34's
    Splawn 4x12 with G12M-65's
    Zoom H5 about 6' from cab and about knee height.

    Preamp volume about 9 o' clock
    Preamp gain switch on position 2 (of 3, 1=lowest, 3=highest)
    Power amp volume at 100% with presence on 2.

    @fuzzbomb Best Myasnikov CCV sounds I've heard so far. Keep em coming!

    Wait. Do you mean the one that came stock with EL34s (50/50 and 100/100) or the 9100 that was 5881 only? I just had my 9100 retubed and was under the impression that EL34s are too tall for it.

    It's the 9100 that came stock with 5881's. I *just* bought it a few weeks ago, the guy who owned it had it converted to EL-34's. They are just the tiniest bit too tall, and do push the top cover up just a little. But the CCV still fit in the rack above it without any issue.

    Longer demo of CCV with video. Will try to do another one with a different guitar.

    I tried to just play similar generic patterns and chords over and over.

    @Tisca Do you have any insight on the voicing switch of the 9100? It makes a pretty drastic difference but I haven't found much info on what it does to the circuit.
