Re: BB/BE, OS and Savage modules in stock at Sweetwater

Definitely look into the cathode bias select mod for your Randall, it's great to re-visit your Randall/Egnater mods with different cathode settings. I use an RM4 with the stock Randall/Egnater Fender setting and an M4 with the mod set to boutique.

Just got an M4 with the cathode bias mod yesterday. I did a quick sound test with an Egnater SL2X, a JF Twox and Custom RVerb, a Salvation TwinFace and MarkUs, a Sacred Groove SL+ and a stock Grail. The Fender (stock) setting has the big bass and sounds great with the clean Twox mod, while the Marsh...

Bingo, that's the routing I use, I just have a jumper running from loop 1 out to loop 2 in since my looper has individual in/outs for each loop. I just bought an M4 this morning to go to 8 modules so I'll be using the looper to select them. I also wire my guitars with stereo jacks so the rhythm/lead...

Get a loop switcher, I use an old Rocktron Loop 8 Floor. Guitar goes to loop 1 input, loop 1 send goes to RM22 input, RM22 send goes to loop 1 return, loop 1 output feeds loop 2 input. Loop 2 send goes to RM4 input, RM4 output goes loop 2 return, loop 2 output goes to RM22 return, or to as many fx ...

Re: Got a JF Hammerhead module - Wow!

I’m looking this more than my Synergy SLO module. Great string definition and clarity. Wonder how good is the JF Ecstasy module. I liked the XTC more when I had both and moved the Hammerhead along, thought it was more flexible in the lower gain settings and boosted. https://i.imgur.com/vQRecPT.jpg

I use a TC Nova Drive in front of an RM4. It's my favorite into a Jaded Faith Twox module for pedal dirt sound. It's progammable with a screamer side and distortion side that can be flipped or routed in parallel. The screamer is a nice boost for Marshall/Boogie mods and it'll change presets to match...

Line 6 HX Effects & IR loader

So this looks like a nice foot switch for your modular preamp:

MIDI I/O + 4 relays, 4CM with up to 9 FX and IR loading for playing MTS/Synergy preamps direct. Nice & trim little package.

There are a bunch of unused loops on the back of an RM4, try inserting jumper cables in them an see if it eliminates the crackles. The normalled connections will oxidize over time from not being used and creat all kinds of flaky intermittent issues.

We did this thread in January and my picks were Salvation Twinface, Sacred Groove SL+ and Salvation MarkUs.

Just to show why I'm modular, today's picks:
clean - Jaded Faith Twox
crunch - Jaded Faith XTC
hi-gain - Sacred Groove SL+

I'm guessing the Fenders are the only remaining Egnater design as they still feature the D/S switching from his last run of modules: DUAL<>SINGLE SLIDE SWITCH: The T/DLX module includes a switch used to allow the new Synergy modules to be used in older single channel Egnater and Randall modular amps...

Tube Screamer, Rat, Big Muff, Boss OD/DS pedals into Clean, Twinface, and Twox mods sound pretty different compared to those pedals feeding the actual amps. Without the pedals, I find them pretty dead-on so I assumed it had something to do with the shared input circuitry in the amp itself when runni...
