I was messing around with the Jube stack the other day and I was thinking about how many people run these as channel switchers and others feel they work best if treated as a single channel. Both methods are valid of course but I was noticing that my opinion of the channel switching was dependent on the guitar I was using at the time. For example I have two main guitars that I play. The first is a Jackson King V with active pickups with true coil splits. The second guitar is a Charvel San Dimas with the classic Duncan JB/59 combo(my favorite pickup combo) and the Charvel also has a coil split. What I noticed was that when I was using the King V with active pickups I felt that it was very difficult to balance the gain between clean and dirt. I usually end up putting a clean boost up front to take my from rhythm to lead territory. When I was using the Charvel I initially felt the same way unless I switched from my bridge pickup to my neck pickup. The Charvel is setup to have the neck pickup a little lower than the bridge meaning if I want a bit of a gain drop I can flip my toggle and get it to clean up quickly. I attempted to do the same with the King V and it works somewhat but not as well. My King V has direct mounted pickups meaning that the height is not adjustable. I am not sure if EMG's are even designed to have the height tweaked the way traditional pickups are so this may not even be a good idea. To summarize I found that if I had a guitar that had more tone options it made the Jubilee feel a lot more versatile than it did with a guitar that had less tweakability. Anyone else feel the same way? I would love to hear more tips you guys use to make channel switching work in a live situation.
