I just found out that you can increase your gain by jumping inputs with a patchcable. I tried this out on my old Marshall JCM 800 1987 4 input head, which I thougt had just a little bit less gain than I wanted. The result was completely amazing ! It was like reaching nirvana! Ive found my perfect tone by using nothing else than my Les Paul and my Marshall... No effects what so ever. Just had to tell someone about this happening, and hopefully someone else could use this if they have the same problem...

I tried out the Ibanez TubeScreamer TS-9, but it just didnt cut it... Now i have found that jumping inputs in some cases could do better than a pedal

Great! Now that you don't need your effects any more, send them to me.

If it is similar to a recto, running the effects loop adds another preamp tube, which in turn adds more gain.

Glad you're enjoying it!

How do you run the fx loop ? just a patch cable from send to return ?

its when you have 4 inputs (two channels) and you plug the two channels into eachother. At the same time plug your guitar into one of the channels... This way you activate both channels and get more gain


O - Channel 1, high gain O - Channel 2, high gain

O - Channel 1, low gain O - Channel 2, low gain


Channel 1, low gain ---> Channel 2, high gain
Guitar ---> Channel 1, high gain

Wait.......... 4 holes........ One for your guitar, two for patching, so that leaves one empty hole ??
Tone is all ...... well probably 75%, in your fingers.
The rest depends on your wallet's thickness !!

Keep the faith, baby!!

^ Yup. But you usually have three inputs open anyway if your not jumping inputs
