For the past 2 weeks, i was in New Hampshire with my friend, and had to live with playing through my Marshall Mini Stack (not an mg, the travel kind) suffice to say it sounded bad, through anything except my neck pickup, although even that was bad.


I just got back today, plugged into my Supersonic with my TS9, and was surrounded by the most saturated, harmonic laden, tone. That was so versatile, it had enough bite and gain but could clean up and wasnt overly distorted


If anyone happens to have a Supersonic and a TS9, try out my settings:

Amp

Gain 1 (Preamp) - 8
Gain 2 (Poweramp) -10
Treble- 6 1/2
Bass-5 1/2
Middle-7
Volume - 5


Tubescreamer

Drive- 12 o clock
Tone- 12 o clock
Level- Maxed out

At first when I read your title, I went WTF?!?!? What's wrong with this kid!?!?!?

But now that you've explained it, I could not agree more.

how are the higher gain settings on the supersonic?



They are REALLY smooth and liquidy, really good for lead lines, a little muddy on low volumes, but with a good OD pedal it cant really do higher gain stuff like Satriani, Vai, not good if youre into tight metal though.

I sometimes on purpose set a really ****ty tone, and just play like crazy. It makes me feel nice. If I have good tone setup, i almost feel guilty whn just going crazy and "shreading" all over the place.

I get that ... my music teacher uses a really nasty SS amp for music class. Afterward I go home, plug into my mesa, and the difference in sound quality makes me really appreciate the nicer amplifier!

As opposed to flabby metal or lose metal?

Haha, mines EXACTLY the same thing; we've got this Crate SS amp at practice that just makes my schecter or ibanez sound terrible, but i go home, plug into my DC-5 and just hit a friggin E chord, and have to stand back and appreciate the better amp.

Although cringe when i remember the price tag of such greatness. >_>



It was worth it.

The same thing happens when I only have access to an acoustic, or have to use my little zoom recorder to hear my guitar. When I plug into a REAL amp, it sounds heavenly.

I only get to crank my Laney about once a month, but when I do it's worth having to use a Pod for the rest of the time, I always end up with a big shit-eating grin on my face when I'm going through the Laney.
A dwarf might hear you. What then?

Yes as there are such things as DIFFERENT tones....



The low end on the supersonic is very loose and open as opposed to say a Peavey 6505 for a real tight low end.

when i travel i always drag along a POD and some headphones to jam in the Hotel, and when i get back home to my Amps i have to apologize to them for temporarly going digital, and warming them up, tickling the knobs, teasing them by cranking them for 30 seconds then back to low volume. sitting infront of them with an acoustic singing to them.

ok just kidding, but yes i think everyone could take for granted their great tone.

Sometimes having a good tone is bad for me... hear me out first haha

I play through an AC30 and well i always nitpick at it. If i dont like something i must change it until its perfect. Yet when my friends come over and i havent dialed in my so called "good tone" they still think it sounds awesome.
