jsx combo

  1. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    All I have a JSX combo for about 6 months now, the other night I was playing it and all of a sudden a load squeal omitted from the amp for about 5 seconds and then the output sound was reduced by about a half. Since then the punch of the overdrive is just not there and it sounds a bit hollow...

    Hey Guys, Just got my G-major Effects Processor this morning... But I'm still trying to figure our the best way to run it through the effects loop of the JSX Combo. How do you guys do it? What inputs/outputs (that go through the effects loop) do you use on the G-Major? And I cant seem to get...

    Hey guys, So I just ordered a JSX 2x12 Combo, cant wait!! Played a Vox Valvetronix 120VTX for the last 3 years & decided it was time to leave the world or hybrid amps and get an adult amp! lol So... I've been looking into the Xotic BB Preamp pedal & thinking of treating myself to one... Have...

    Hey guys I'm looking for a tube/valve amp. I play mostly all lead. Looking for a steve vai, paul gilbert, satch, jason becker kind of tone. Looking for Combo's not heads and cabinets. Let me know! I was looking at the 333xl bugera. How is that? Thanks! How does the bugera compare to the line 6...

    Hey folks, I have a rig that I currently use and LOVE (pod xt + atomic reactor amp), and I was thinking of getting another setup (perhaps going all-tube), since I split my time between college (in a diff state) and my home. My max cost for this is about 1300-1400. I play primarily instrumental...

    Hi, Do you prefer transistor amps, or tube equipped ones? I checked out the amp guide, but there was nothing there (I couldn't find anything when I did a search). I know not much about this particular subject, so I thought I'd post this poll. Also, maybe it turns out as something interesting...

    I thought I had found the ideal in the fender supersonic, but it doesnt seem to sound that good at gigging volumes on the clean channels, vibrolux expecially. Anybody used the peavey xxx 40 with effects? What are the clean sounds like? should i just sell one of the kids and get a mesa...

    Hi, I thought it would be interesting to have a thread that's entirely dedicated to overdrive and distortion, in which you can share info about which pedals you prefer and why, how you've managed to get the sound you searched through the use of your pedals, etc. etc. It might be a cool thread...

    Something like a Mesa Express 5:25 but doesn't break the bank.

    I'm the first to admit I was skeptical about these new Bugera amps by Behringer (6260, 6262 and 333, said to be inspired by Peavey 5150, 5150 II and XXX respectively). I wasn't sure they could make a good sounding valve amp for the price. Tonight I tested one of each (6262 head, and the combo...

    A while ago I decided it was time to move up from my trusted old Johnson Millenium amp and to the real thing (tube amp). The idea was to have a great 3 or 4 channel amp as the basis, and then put on effects later on when I can afford it (a Digitech GSP1011 was in my mind). Could I have chosen...

    What do you guys figure is the best amp/rig for $1000 or under? I'm currently using a Pod XT with an Atomic Reactor amp, and it's pretty sweet, but it never hurts to hear what else is out there. Note: I play metal/hard rock, so keep that in mind when you make any recommendations please...

    Anyone in Long Island NY area looking to trade a mint JSX Combo for a similar high gain head ( such as JSX / Engl/ EVH 5153). Must be in mint condition. I love the tone on this amp...its weight is not practical as I am actively gigging / rehearsing all over the area. Footswitch/ manual and...

    Hi guys, I have been playing guitar for a while, and I am looking for a new amp (preferably tube amp) that sounds good. For my current setup, I use the Ibanez RG 2550 Prestige guitar with stock pups, Digitech RP200 and BOSS MT-2 pedals. I sometimes use my Mexican-made Fender Stratocaster. So...

    All I have just bought an MXR 10 band equalizer, patched it into my new JSX combo effects loop and bam! tone at last, I have to tell you the sonic range coming out of it is amazing. I have had a crappy sound setup for years now but I think I am finally sorting it out, I really recommend those...

    Why is it that everyone is always stomping on the Quality of Crate amps...... Have they spent time with one in the last 10 yrs???? Do they realize that for 7 yrs running Crate was the most sold amp in the World....not USA "WORLD". I just don't get it............every model they make isn't GREAT...
