We're playing in a pub on Saturday, a pretty good one.

I'll try to record something this week if I can.

I'm in Melbourne and, if I get the chance I might try to check you guys out.

An update.

New modules. Yay! I have kept the Randall Tweed module but the other two slots have Salvation Mods modules now.

Slot 2 is his Mash-all+ module. It gives me plexi, Jose mod, 2203 and JVM tones. I've had it for a while and used it at gigs, it lives on the 2203 setting really. Very cool module. Like it lots.

Slot 3 has his Markus module. It is a Mesa Mark module. It arrived today so I haven't really put it through its paces properly yet but it is definitely Mark tones - and as hard to dial in as a real Mark too. I've even pulled a passable Recto tone out of it, not that I'd ever use Recto tones.

So now I have Fender, Marshall and Mesa tones in one amp without having to resort to any digital bullshit.



Sitting on top is the rack I am currently building. I will be staining it ebony in the next day or three.

Another module I use regularly in another RM100 is a Super V. It's a seriously hotrodded AC30 module. Has real Marshall overtones to it but Voxy sorta cleans when you roll off the guitar volume. I considered getting one for myself but went for the Markus instead. Voodoo labs do a modified version of the Super V too which was very tempting.


It isn't really a Mark V. It doesn't have the clean channel. I knew that when I ordered it. I wanted Carlos Santana lead tones and it does a pretty good job of that. He also make a Lonestar module if Mesa cleans are what you are after. I have the Tweed for my cleans - I wanted saturated lead tones so I grabbed the Markus.

Damn. I might have to start keeping an eye out for an used RM100. I'd use it exactly for that.

Yeah, I didn't think it worth starting a whole new thread for a couple of modules. It seemed to me like it was more of a conclusion to the NAD. It's how I want it now. Fully set up and ready to go. I may buy more modules in the future but it would just be an indulgence really and I have other things to buy. HD500X next; to replace the rack, but that will have to wait 'til next year. I'll just enjoy what I've got for a while.
Oh, and I'm driving it all with that Boss MIDI controller you found on gumtree. It's working perfectly.


And chicken heads on the Fender module. I think I like it.

If you sold the rack stuff and the boss midi thing wouldn't that be almost enough cash to get a HD500x?

Not gonna happen. The Quaddy's too useful and I like having the big rack tuner around. I've used that to tune a piano. I can wait. I'm getting a pretty good sound out of it. I'm running the Quadraverb in the parallel loop. I'll have to grab the interface off my bassist and I'll lay down some clips. It aint bad, aint bad at all. I can live with it.

That's a hell of a versatile setup. I didn't know you had the Marsh-All too. Fender cleans, Marshall crunch, Mesa leads? Does it get better than that?

Always had a soft spot for these amps. I kind of like that the modules were not "Spot on" to what they were replicating. Makes it have its own thing going on rather than just being a replica of every amp. Very HNAD to you.

It kicks arse, it really does. I'd recommend the RM100 to anybody but there is a catch; you'll end up spending a fortune on modules. Cheaper than new amps though. I've spent about $800 on modules so far.

Yeah, except for signature stuff. The Scott Ian module is so over-the-top, I actually would really like to try it but I doubt I'd buy it just because it looks so silly

I do like how Salvation tries to catch some of the look of the original, kind of neat.

ah right, thanks

and yeah. if you're going for modules based on classic amps, making them look right adds to that

The Salvation modules have a nice look to them, some of the other makers get a bit garish. Anthony has pretty good taste with the design of his panels. Unlike say, this one:

I'm sure it's a great sounding module but the graphics are a bit on the nose.

Visiting the family in a few weeks. Maybe I'll snag my brothers RM50. I need a project or two. Tweaking a few modules should be fun.

i didn't realize you only spoke australian.

your modules are modeling other amps.

As promised, here's a quick clip.
I give a short blast on each of the three modules. There's a bit of Quadraverb added in via the parallel loop.

Still learning how to dial in the Markus module, I'm sure I can get it better after getting to know it better but anyway, here 'tis.

The Mash-all is a great module.

It's gonna take me a while to extract the sound I'm looking for out of the Markus but I'm sure it's in there. The tone controls are weird, just like on a real Mesa. What I really want to find in there is Santana's lead tone on Abraxus, or something in that vein anyway. I'll get there I think, it's just gonna take some time with it.

i thought the markus module sounded good already, though obviously that's probably not the exact type of tone you're going for
