Re: boxy sounding amp
It was definetly the speaker! A buddy of mine had an old Carvin br12 that he wasn't using so he gave it to me. I pulled the old speaker and installed tha Carvin.....WHAT AN EFFING DIFFERENCE!!! It sounds like a completely different amp. The lows are fat but tight, nice mids w/o being honky, and smooth sweet glassy highs but not screechy or harsh. I know the Carvin wouldn't be most ppls first choice but it was free and considering how good it sounds to my ears I would definetly buy one in the future, especially considering how little they cost.
I plugged my old Digitech gsp21 Legend Pro into the effects loop and used it only for effects. I'm in love again. u gotta love the rich chorus, multiple delays, awesome flanger, and even the digital reverb is pretty good even tho I don't use it. I'm thinking about having the combo turned into a head and getting a 2x12 or 4x12 cabinet to further accentuate the awesome tones I am getting. I have a friend who will fabricate a new faceplate for it if I do have it made into a head so that the writing on the amps face will be right-side up.
