I must say most of those clips just sounded like a clean amp. I agree about how it sounds like it has no gain. It also doesn't sound great - my opinion.

^agreed.

It def sounded better in person.

Is this any better? I got a volume box now in the loop so I can manage the gain better. Remember, I'm just a noob hobbyist and don't have the skillz yet.

wow... I finally was able to crank my Nitro to about 12:00 and it sounds AMAZING

I got a Fulldrive 2 MOSFET a couple days ago but I have yet to try it with my Nitro...

^I got a volume box in effects loop and made a big difference.

I use my Bad Monkey as clean boost every now and then.

I finally got my EQ pedal dialed in just right and it's sweet.

Dude - your amp is so sick looking. You should do a NAD thread when you get some clips so more people will see this beauty.

hahah funny thing actually.... I put my Splawn on eBay just to feel around and see if someone will buy it, because there's another amp that I've been dying to try and someone is selling it, and I have a feeling it will go soon! I really like trying out different amps, and if this one that I'm gonna get doesn't work out, I'll get another Nitro

I really do love this amp... sounds amazing!

Wait, you just got a Nitro and you're selling it? Or am I missing something?

yuuup you heard right. I kind of used the Nitro as a segway for another amp. I was saving funds for either a Nitro or Peters Chimera, and the Nitro came up first. I realllly wanted to try a Peters Chimera though, so I put it on on the feeBay and I'll see if it sells. If it does, cool, if it doesn't, I still don't mind because I like this amp a lot. I basically have nothing to lose.

And if I don't happen to like the Chimera, I'll get another Nitro

I have about 10 minutes of stuff i recorded with the quickrod. It's gonna bet a while before I get the sound adjusted to sound right.

I record a good bit off center of the cone so it sounds more boxy than most guys prefer. It is a single track, bunch of short segments to try to give you a wider variety of stuff it can do. Maxon OD9 was used for a good deal of it. The volume was high when I first started recording. Where I'm using a different recording interface I'm having a great deal of trouble trying to get it to sound right.

Clips will be uploaded by 10:00 tonight!

Which would be better for a more vintage-y Plexi tone, the Quickrod or the Super Stock? I mean, if the Quickrod does vintage Marshall tones just as well as the Super Stock, I'll go with the Quickrod but...

What do you mean off-center? I have my mike pointed parallel with cab with mic end right at edge of cone on left speaker at about 10 o'clock. Any mic placement tips are welcome.

Thanks for taking time to do one more clip before she's traded for teh schecter.




Khoifish, ummmm........

Sorry for the delay, the first file was deleted when audacity decided to fail on me.

The Presonus Audiobox usb thing isn't cutting it for me. I can't get a good solid sound on it. Not to mention I like all the goodies the Line 6 Toneport offers as far as compressors and such.

Here are some pics!
