    Excellent - you can customize the IR by speaker type, mic placement, mic distance, power amp simulation, eq- you’re merely limited by your own ears

    Don't neglect considering the Crucible. It was custom and perfectly designed for a direct rig using the internal reactive load and line out to an IR. Using the 1 watt speaker output is certainly it's least valuable utility, at least based on my testing.

    Here’s a little prototype song I am working on. This time I ran all the guitar and bass through the Harlot into the Two Notes CAB into the computer. I did use a digital envelope filter/phaser effect and mild delay on some parts, but no extra eq or processing in the mixing. Just used a mastering plugin to glue it together. The Harlot works as a killer preamp for direct recording with the CAB!!

    Page = everything set around 12:30
    Harlot = gain at 1 o'clock, volume and treble around 2 o'clock

    For this gig, I used vintage Marshall 2203 into a 212 cab, set just to break up .. the page pushes the amp into a nice warm biting crunch and then Harlot for leads. It sound glorious. Nothing like those vintage Marshalls with Drake transformers ... :)

    Ill try to upload a few clips .. its amazing how well this set up cuts thorough the mix.

    Very nicely done. Definite shades of shakedown street in a very cool way.

    Yeah, it's cool that he's mixing tones like paints on a canvas.

    Really enjoyed the song, sounded killer. I have been wanting to go the preamp into the cabM route, but always thought I needed a preamp of which I would probably go with the constable. Now I may have to try my harlot through my friends nux ss5 and see how it does. What are your harlot settings?

    Glad it’s working for you. Sounds like a big, bold sound with no hiding and no fear!

    The Page is one of those pedals that gives back exactly what you give it. Nice rig sir!

    Did you already review your Harlot purchase? I was curious how you like it.

    I think I was on mode 2, drive at 11:00, bass setting on max for bass, lowest setting for guitar. Tone at 10:00. Volume enough to push the Two Notes power amp sim a little for character. I left it like that and used volume control on guitar for all tones, adjust tone control as needed. 76 Strat, American J Bass.

    There's been some great looking and sounding new pedals here! Can anyone tell me how the Crucible compares to a Fryette Power Station? I'm a few weeks out on the Crucible, I'm trying to decide if I need it...I'm buying it regardless, just curious how others who have both have found them.

    Not your question precisely but it is one of the most valuable Kingsleys that I have had. I'm using it with the internal reactive load in the effects loop to warm up the Atomic Amplifire. The Amplifire Plexi model with the loop send level cranked up to push the the Crucible is one of truest Marshal tones I have ever obtained.

    Very cool, this has my wheels turning on using one of my Kinglsey ODs into the Cab sim. My harlot is a V1 with an internal bass but, but I only have the highest bass and middle bass, so hopefully that will work. I am now going to call it the Harlot V1.5 :)

    I am wondering how the V2 Jester would work as a preamp. Really trying to avoid getting back on the list, even though a Jester Custom would be right up my alley.

    Based on the "new bright boost" @Vishnu described, I'm honestly wondering if I even need a Jester Custom anymore. If Simon could just make me a Jester V2 with the new bright boost, I think I'd be set.

    Just try it! The Two Notes has EQ anyway if the extra bass is a dealbreaker. There are no rules!

    To be clear though...I don't think the OD's would work well as just a regular preamp into an effects return. Who knows though, with a boost and EQ if maybe that might not work as well?
