Well ... I am in the band again, after almost 8 years .... Took my Laney up to 6 (1 o'clock) on the MV. Those who know AORs understand that its pretty freaking loud. New problems with playing that loud. First feedback is a byooootch!!! I mean its really bad, even covering the pup with palm does not really work. I push it with Spina's TS9 and the minute I stop playing I get a phenomenal radio reception. I also get a pretty lould hum. So, Hush, Deciminator, or what else ? Thanks dudes. P.S. The old trick of matching the pre-amp with MV really works.
