Re: Difference Between the Pitbull and Deliverance?

I had the Deliverance and it was a nice module but too boomy on the bottom end. It had nice crunch sounds and was good for that JMC800 crunch, but I sold it because my other modules could also do similar sounds as well as much higher gain that the Deliverance couldn't do. So for Crunch and 80's hard...

Re: Synergy Bogner Ecstasy Module Questions

No worries:), I actually modded my Synergy XTC to be more like the amp and now both sound dead on. Whoa, that's cool! Are the Synergy modules easy to mod? Pretty much, the PCB boards are through hole which is unusual for the price point, this makes it much easier to de-solder. There are thin ribbon...

Re: Syn-1 Sag

As some already know, the SAG switch is supposed to simulate a vintage amps power supply "sagging" due to the fact that the power supply was not up to snuff. When he amps were pushed hard, the power supply voltage would drop causing a drop in voltage to the preamp tubes as well. That's why the SAG f...

Re: Synergy Bogner Ecstasy Module Questions

If you read my post I said Ecstacy AMPS don't have a Schizo switch I ready your post multiple times and didn't see the "don't" . My apologies. The Schizo Switch has been standard on nearly all of his later designs and to my ears, the Synergy Ecstasy sounds awesome and exactly how I'd dial in the he...

Re: Synergy Bogner Ecstasy Module Questions

The thing with the Synergy version is that the Ecstacy amps don't have a Schizo switch. Instead they have Gain Boost, Structure. The Schizo switch is a combo of those switches The Synergy Bogner Ecstasy does have a Schizo Switch and it's referenced in the manual and description. This is from the we...

Re: Syn50 Questions

Also keep in mind the various preamps paired with the correct power amp will also be more representative. For example PowerBall and SLO modules are best with 6L6 as that’s what the real amps had. The Ecstasy and Vai modules are best with EL34 and the Uber sounds very good with all types depending on...

Re: Synergy Exctasy any reviews?

I have one and it is worth the hype. They sell out very fast. I have owned a 101B and also built a clone of one and this module is the real deal. Also download the pdf manual from the Synergy site to see the dip switches under the the tube metal grill. The 2 small dip switches are labeled 100B/101B ...

Re: Syn-1 Sag

Don't know how the sag is setup, but it seems to be sensitive to gain and volume. Try changing the 12AX7 in the Syn-1.

Re: Synergy Exctasy any reviews?

The Pre EQ is a bright switch, it switches between 2 values, 1.0N for B1 and 4.7 for B2. B2 lets in more lower mids and that is why it seem to have more gain.

Re: syn50 cathode bias

The Synergy 50 head uses a Push/Pull power amp section that is fixed bias, some refer to fixed bias as ("adjustable" bias) Its kind of interesting a lot of the media hype speaks of Cathode biasing the preamps. 99% of all guitars amps preamp tubes use cathode biasing. I think what the deal with Syner...

Re: SYN-2 sag control

The SAG control is set up to mimic the amp loosing power (SAG) under high power with heavier pick attack transients. You will find it is directly related to how loud the preamp volume is. The louder the volume is turned up, the more sensitive the sag control is. Older vintage Amps like the older Mar...
