Re: Fender Super Sonic Review...

Clean channel with EQ in the loop on and off. Also, BD-2 on about 1/2 way into clip.

Re: Fender Super Sonic Review...

Just did a little clip with the Tele. Ignore the playing check out the tone.
I still like the FSS now that I'm getting it dialed in. Nothing but FSS on this clip. No pedals.

Re: Fender Super Sonic Review...

I'm going to do a few more FSS clips very soon. But I thought this was a pretty good review on Youtube. I have no idea what they're saying though.

Getting modded. Dropping off tomarrow at amp specialist.

The treble is unusable, so its always off. The clean breaks up too easily. The amp fall apart when you turn it up. Unusual for 60 watt tube amp. Getting those things addressed and the cool thing, have the 1st gain stage made foot switchable. Modding for a little more Marshally gain. I'll let ya know how it work when it comes back.

And/or put Furman PQ3 or TC 1140 in the loop. Would probably cost less than the mod.

Re: Fender Super Sonic Review...

I run it through a Legacy cab with v30's.
Stuff in the loop comes after the preamp. I'd rather addess the problem with the pre amp itself than trying to correct them with eq. I have put an eq in the loop and it helped a lot. But what I'd really like is a amp a cord and a guitar. I may use pedals at times. But don't want to rely on them to correct a $1300 amp. And since every amp is a compromize of something, and I do really like the "foundational tone" of the FSS, I thin its worth spending some money on to get it closer to what I want. I liked the JSX tone a lot. But it just couldn't do things the FSS can. Like warm smooth slight gain. I play more with little gain than a lot. Which is why I had the JSX modded for less gain. And I prefer a combo...that doesn't kill me when I carry it. And there is no need for more than one speaker when you only use one mic.

Re: Fender Super Sonic Review...

Dropped the FSS off today. The tech said he's excited to mod the FSS. It has a lot of potential. Can't wait to get it back!

Re: Fender Super Sonic Review...

I will log everything done and post it here. If this guy is right, and I suspect he is. Fender made some goofy choices when choosing pots and caps. I told him the volume issue was last on my list of things I want to address. We think a it may be addressed by what we are already doing. Like I said before. I don't play very loud, I play with 2 drummers both with Roland kits. And I have my own PA.
