bodom actually uses krank in the studio and arch enemy used to use krank. so I'd say go with the krank. plus they sound great
dude bodom never used crank in the studio. the stuff they use in the studio is the same as the stuff they use live. since they use marshall jcm 800s, or a tube preamp-->tube poweramp setup, they never used cranks
OK, so first off, i am not planning to purchase a cab or head or anything now, this is just for my knowledge.
Is it better to get an amp head with the matching cab or getting a different cab. So would it be better to get a Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier with its matching 412 cab, or with say... a Vader 412 cab???
... he uses a preamp, plugged into some effects and then a poweramp, rather than plugging the preamp into a normal amp. This is basically the same as a normal amp but with the pre- and power-amp sections split up.
Although, why it says he uses 2 Celestion speakers and a 4x12 cabinet, I don't know...
Have you ever tried using your VOX amplug into a PC?? I wanna know how that works, and if it acts as an interface.
In answering your question, the majority of your tone comes from your fingers. Then another big part from your amp, then the rest from pedals (they color your tone), pups, and your guitar (woods and such). So if 2 people had similar gear, and similar playing ability and style, they should sound the same. In Theory.
i know that i could crank the preamp gain on an amp but if i were to add a preamp in the fx loop, it would be the same as adding a distortion pedal?? also how would a preamp in the fx loop affect the distortion and tone?
so i play metal, mostly modern stuff, and i know that modern metal uses pre-amp gain. so i was wondering, if i wanted to get a good modern metal tone, would i need to buy one? if so, which ones are good.
also if possible, could anyone tell me what a preamp would do and how it works
I've had my Computer and Fender Princeton amp also plugged into the same powerboard for the last 6 months. Shouldn't they of blown up as well?
I'm in Australia maybe when they are doing the conversion of the Peavey amps they are doing something wrong. Could that be a possibility?
if thats the case then ur the unluckiest person ive ever seen to have 2 amps blow up in the same way is just unlucky
id just return the amp and get a refund but if u like the amp, and got it from a local store, try to get a replacement. cos as said before, local stores will feel bad for you and dont want to lose customers, where as chain stores (ie guitar center) wont give a rats a$$ if they lose a customer as they have a million others.
try one more time, but in a different plug cos third times the charm, and if it still blows up dont get a peavey or get a refund
maybe the room u have it in is having wat we call in lebanon a "mass" (lebanese slang not sure wat the actual word is) simply it means that a power jack, a room or even ur entire house, is either: 1) taking too much power than it should: so 250V instead of the the 220V 2) its taking too little power: 200V instead of 220V
since the amp is blowing up i assume its probably taking too much power
thats an electrical point of view thats my 2 cents
