bbe sonic maximiser

  1. Off-topic / Miscellaneous
    I'm actually contemplating putting this up for sale, and decided to take some photos first, after having a bit of a play ofcourse. I haven't been in a band for a very long time, and I no longer need such a loud head. I'm more than happy with my Pod XT pro & BBE sonic maximiser. Anyway, here...

    I have recently been getting into Shred type stuff and my favorite tone is similar to Paul Gilberts. I currently have a Marshall JCM800 2204 50watt 1982 and an Avatar closed back cab w/ 2 vintage 30's. I use a Carl Martin Plexitone pedal. While I cannot currently afford a new amp, Is...

    Hey Guys I've got a burning question here. As a young hard rock/alt rock/metal/wtf?!! guitarist, I've come to love the MESA Dual/Triple Rectifiers as recorded on a sh1tload of albums by my favourite bands (I'm an avid fan of the two different tones used by Dan Donegan of Disturbed on "Stupify"...

    Okay, I have a Nightwish DVD and I really like the tone on it, and I'm trying ti identify the kind of gear the guitarist is using. I have some fuzzy pics and if anyone could try and identify anything it would be really helpful. These are DVD screenshots, which as far as I'm aware is fair...

    Hello, I am looking to purchase a new amp+cab in the near future. I play mainly melodic metal (a la Dream Theater) and a lot of classic rock (Zeppelin, AC/DC and the like). I really want an amp that has that nice distortion of John Petrucci, so obvously, I was looking into the Dual Recto...

    After reading a bunch of reviews on harmony central praising the POD XT. I decided to one myself hoping to get a good recording unit and a decent tube amp modeler. This is my 3rd week into using the POD xt. (all updates, all model packs) I've been playing for around 5 years and I've owned SS...

    There's an enormous amount of information out there for so many popular pieces of gear. Since many people will swear by their amps, I have NO idea what to get (no good stores around either). So I was wondering if some members who love their gear and sound would like to post some soundclips and...

    Just recently purchased one of these little gems and was blown away with what it did to the sound of my old Marshall. Sounded like a quilt was lifted from the speakers. It was that much of a night and day difference. I never actually had the opportunity of testing this thing out before ordering...

    Hey guys, I have the VL100 Legacy head. The Gain is too light for me. I need something with a really heavy, crunchy gain, like a dual rectifier. Are there any pedals you guys can recommend to get in that area of sound, or should I just sell the Legacy? I adore the clean channel, but like for the...

    Hey guys, I was just wondering if you could give me some advice. I'm currently using a Marshall AVT50 combo along with a RG350 with an evo in bridge and an air norton in the neck. I have never been able to get a good full distorted sound out of the amp. To me it seems muffled and...

    Been mucking around with the tones some more. Trying to find that ever elusive heavy crunch without the fizz-buzz-fizz that goes hand in hand with digital non-tube stuff. Now this is recorded straight into the PC with no EQ, or BBE sonic maximiser. (I think it'd be better with the maximiser...

    Hi guys!! I thought we'd do a less controversial topic this time around... I'd like to hear about your favorite rig setup ie: What guitar you use, amps, effects..in what order do you like up your effects/pedals... I think we can learn from each other on this one!!!

    I want to buy a totaly new amp setup. Today I play trough a JCM800 with GT5 and tube factor (h&k). I can't get the ideal sustain and tone. Is the combination JPM1 and the G force a good combination with a Marshall tube power amp?

    While my Line6 is felxible enough, that's part of the problem. I get a lot of good sounds, no great ones! The Line6 does not "breathe" like a tuber and the dimension of sound doesn't move me. I must say, the Soldano amp model is the one I gravitate towards. I've heard Soldano samples on that...

    I have been thinking of getting one, but don't really know that much about them. I know BBE makes them, but does anyone else make anything comparable? Apart from that, what does everyone here think of them, in terms of value for money, sound etc? Which models would people recommend? Any other...
