I just got a Torpedo CAB last week to mate with my HD500. I've spent a little bit of time tweaking but, as we all know, with the POD you can get lost in tweaking for days. Having a bunch of Torpedo options seems like it could just increase my tweaking time. So...for those of you who have already gone down this road could you give me some suggestions regarding your favorite settings. ( I am fine that these are opinions.) For example, with the HD500, I could just turn off the cab, use the amp and then turn off power amp on the CAB. Alternatively, I could go preamp on POD and use one of the many power amps on the CAB. I suppose I could use two power amps..who knows, maybe in some situations this might actually sound good. At this point, I have only put the Cab in the F/X loop, haven't had any issues but I know some people like it post HD500. My sounds were OK with the HD500 cabs but I thought I could do better with the Torpedo, so I am experimenting. So far I have found that I really liked getting rid of the Mesa Cab with the Mesa model and using the Torpedo. On the other hand, I previously used a Bassman nrm model with the HD500 and it was OK. I found the Bassman preamp nrm model to be difficult to dial in(really need to boost it up with the mixer). OK..so all preamps are not created equal. In any event, if you could share with me some of your experiences and preferences, it would help me. Thanks.
