    If I could figure out how to get a usable lead volume boost out of it, this rig would be my go-to gig rig... Regardless, it's a lot of fun to play! Resized_20200314_165501(1)(1).jpeg

    Choke the volume down for rhythm (via loop), or an attenuator with a switchable boost are the only 2 ways I can think of.

    EQ pedal in the FX loop does the trick for me.

    I know I'm a bit late to the game, but here's my lovely new friend. Guess, it's never too late for good gear :D

    Guitar is a 1990 Gibson Les Paul Classic. Absolutely love everything about this combination!

    Anyways.. thanks for all your posts in this forum! read almost every entry before I decided to buy the amp.

    Now there are two things on my mind:

    - the matching SV112 or the highly praised Barefaced cabs?
    - the new Two Notes Captor X for recording and playing at home since I live in a flat.. and you know what that means:rolleyes:

    What's your opinion?

    Looks good! Put a boost in the loop for volume lead boost, I use an EHX LPB-1, cheap pedal to buy but works well in this loop. :yesway:

    Anyone got any tips on checking out used amps? What to look for to check tube use, if caps are dying, stuff that will end up costing me in the futer pretty much?

    I have an LPB-1,as well and have tried it in the loop. It just saturates more without a noticeable volume boost.

    Really? I have mine set at 9 oclock and I get a very noticeable volume boost in the loop. I'll tell you one thing, if you send your Weber back and have them add the footswitch option you will definitely hear a noticeable volume boost when you switch it off. Give us some detail how youre running your rig now.

    I'm just not understanding your situation based on my own experience with this amp. My setup is plug into the top treble channel input with the volume dimed to get low gain breakup, OD pedals out front for more gain and LPB-1 in loop for lead volume boost, and jhs in loop before LPB-1 for master volume. I've played this way at band volume and it works quite well. What volumes are you playing at? I know you use an attenuator too, I dont know how that affects your setup.

    In your first post, you didn't mention using a volume box before the boost pedal, that's the difference. Otherwise, you wouldn't be getting much of a volume boost. Also, I have a Weber with the "Bypass" option. The downside is, while it could work in the right situation, it completely bypasses the attenuator, so it would be too loud in most situations, even for soloing.

    Isnt that obvious, if youre going for volume you put it last not first right? :shrug:

    Not following. My point, was that you didn't mention the volume box at all in the first post, probably the difference between his setup and yours.

    Like I said in my other post, I dont know what his setup looks like, I was describing my setup.

    Yes, I know that, but when you recommended using the LPB-1 In your first post to Kim Lucky Day, you left out the fact that you were also using a JHS volume box. Unless he is also using a volume box in the loop (in addition to the boost pedal), he won't get the same results. Just trying to clarify, nothing more.
