No problem brother, I was just giving you the heads up on how I am going about this
Got the les Paul dialed in today,lowered the pole pieces on the 6th and 5th string on the bridge pup by one whole turn to give me a tad more bite and pintch harmonics. Lots of dynamic range on the probuckers! Even the clean channel was really nice and more so with the split coils wow! And loud too. The Ruby power tubes still strong at over a year old.I stand like 15 feet away to really hear the amp to see how it sounds bright or not.
Didn't even get into boosting yet today,Creamback is nice and tight!
Cheers Ken , I have to believe you have her dialed in now, I just got home from work and I am going to do a set up on 2 of my fiddles today
more of my dsl40c
here is another sloppy bit of my Melody’s in my head, 2 dsl40c’s and a lead 100 mosfet , with a LP thanks in advance for your time to listen to this
Saw a good band lastnight one les Paul and a LTD guitars
Not everyone in this thread will have CR experience. It's also an exceedingly long thread. That's why the thread here
was started. Focused on the CR with what makes it unique and where people with CR experience can avoid assumptions.
Hi all. Been a while since I've posted just been jamming and working! But just wanted to mention that I tried the 40cr on two back to back weekends trying to like it over my stock 40c and found it very "sterile" I guess is the right word. Sure the 40c has some "issues" but when it's dialed in for a certain sound its just so touch sensitive and lively. I just could not get the new amp to sound anything like the old one. They really are very different amps. It seems everyone praises the new one, am I missing something?
No, you aren't missing anything.
It has a different speaker, it just sounds different.
Best to stick with the original...
You're not the only one. I had played a DSL40CR pretty extensively one day just to see what the fuss was about and found it rather difficult to dial in. Sounded great, but didn't do anything I felt like I couldn't already get out of my Boss Katana 100 (except bass response, but that's probably more to do with cabinet sizes than anything else). When the older C model dropped to 399 on Sweetwater, I figured it was worth the plunge and bought one. I much prefer the C, especially at home and bedroom volumes. Yeah, the treble is a little tough to tame (thinking about swapping speakers to help with that), but the overall "fullness" of sound is incredible. I originally intended to keep the Katana as a home amp; I sold it a couple of weeks after the C arrived home.
Na I heard that also even Rebea from Andertons prefers the old ones also
I agree with you that the treble is a bit hard to tame on the C series, but it is by no means impossible. Barring a speaker swap, it can be done with careful settings on the EQ. I keep Treble and Presence at 2, and when I record, I stay away from the center of the speaker and also lower gain a little bit, which usually does the trick. This forum also abounds with people who have replaced the speaker with a Greenback and had nothing but positive things to report. It seems that after replacing the speaker with something like the Greenback, you can be much more liberal in your use of treble and presence.
Good to know. Thanks for the input... I've been eyeing the Eminence Private Jack for this reason; Greenback voicing with a higher wattage handling. I'm also not opposed to the WGS ET65 or Invader 50, either. Hard to know what to jump for without actually hearing them in the room.
I listened to Johan Segeborn's Greenback S, M, and H model comparison today, and think that the M model is a very classic and safe choice, based on the Youtube comparison.
I still have the 70/80 in mine and think it kills! Jus pup changes. No channel bouncing.
I'm running a Greenback in mine. Great sound. Pure classic rock. Still wary to crank it in 40w mode. Run in triode when I want to get loud. Or split the wattage between my cab and the Greenback. Anyone run one loud at 40w?
I prefer the C to the CR too. I had played the new ones a couple of times in different stores but wasn't hearing anything better than my old one (currently with a V30 in it).
I've put mine into a 412 of G12M's and it sounded like a stud Marshall.
This amp takes pedals well...
