Re: Decrease amount of gain, Tube change?

V1 is on the left, looking from the front of the module. Try a 5751 in V2.

Re: WTB: Friedman HBE (Single Channel)

I have 3 single Friedman mods that I've been hoarding. I don't have much history on them. I bought the 3 in a bulk deal. One is a supposedly HBE but modded to Steve Stevens specs. I could probably whip up some clips if you're interested. I would love to unload the 3 pack but let me know. Here's som...

I might. I know I bought a silver face module that is supposed to be a Friedman... never looked on the bottom for a decal. I'll take a look at it tonight.
Sounds good, thanks.

WTB: Friedman HBE (Single Channel)

I'm specifically looking for one of the old, Randall-based HBE modules with the telltale Rack Systems decal on the underside. Let me know if you have one you're willing to part with. It needn't be cosmetically mint, so long as it works and sounds as it should.

Thanks.

Re: SYN-2 Volume-Level Settings

I have a SYN1, and I've been running through a ton of different sounds with the Plexi module. Just today, I tried full dime on the level and volume. It sounded great, had some noise, but not much. Thanks for the input. I'm not sure running both volumes wide open would work with the (extremely high-...

SYN-2 Volume-Level Settings

SYN-2 owners, how are you setting your module and rack master-volume levels relative to the power amp (or host amp) master? I'm having a bit of trouble striking the right balance of tone (from the module), fullness (from the amp), and minimal background noise.

Re: DOOM!!!!

I haven't played all of the Synergy modules, but I doubt any of them will be better than your Salvation is at creating that type of tone. As for an Orange-type module, I wouldn't get my hopes up. I spoke with one of the big Synergy dealers recently, and he only mentioned the Engl Powerball, Fryette ...

Re: Randall RM50 best clean mod?

If the breakup you're hearing is the result of volume (and not the module's gain setting), it may be coming from your speakers or power section. You might consider KT88/6550 tubes or higher-wattage speakers as an initial step.

Re: Plexi - Wow

On balance, the Synergy modules tend to feel a bit stiffer and more immediate to me, which is to say, "more like a conventional [non-modular] tube amp." This is neither good nor bad, just different.

Re: Rebuild the rig!!!

I would convert the RM4 and get a power amp. That way, you'll have four module slots to work with and won't need two separate footswitches (as you would if running a Syn-2 into a standard amp's effects loop).

Might be looking to sell my Spawn module in a few weeks, after I get a new one in.
Thanks. Let me know what you decide.
