Can I ask you what amps and preamps you used for your first fh album, live also?
There was a lot of time that passed from my first amp (Fender Champ) to the time when we got a record deal.

Towards the end of that time frame, I had picked up (and still have it to this day) a 50 watt Marshall Mk2 that I had modified by putting in a master volume so I didn't have to turn it up all the way to get a good tone. It's been in a road case for about 10 years now.

Low Noise With Ultra High Gain!

Post by Bill Leverty » Sun Mar 02, 2008 6:47 am

I am amazed at how much gain I'm able to get out of this head without any distortion pedal, and how QUIET it is!

I also love how you can get a ton of gain and tone at an extremely low volume.

I got to play an RM-20 when I was in IL and It SMOKES!!!!!!!! I love that amp. That is a LOUD 20 watts. Sounds more like 50 to me...

New RM-4 and RT 2/50... SCHWEEEET!

Post by Bill Leverty » Tue Mar 11, 2008 6:52 am

I just got an RM-4 and an RT 2/50.

I'm in heaven!

I also added a tweed module (amazing versatility for clean to bluesy tones) and a top boost (I was really surprised at how great this one sounded).

These will be added to my coveted collection of MTS modules.

I really like the ability to match either the EL34's or 6L6's to whichever module you want. Recording will be a dream!

I was also talking to my friend, Chris at Guitar 1 Technologies, who was Dan Donegan's tech, (most recently out with Van Halen) and he told me that the RM-4 and RT 2/50 combination was bullet proof and totally road-worthy.

First gig with the RM-4 - AWESOME!

Post by Bill Leverty » Wed Mar 19, 2008 5:05 am

I played my first gig with my new RM-4 yesterday and it went WAY beyond my expectations.

This was a volunteer gig that I did at Children's Hospital in my hometown. I was set up in a small "auditorium" where I played for about 40 people.

One thing that I was asked (told) to do was to KEEP IT DOWN. I figured that was going to be the case, and I was curious as to how the rig would sound at a very low volume.

Well, without any pedal before the head (only a delay in the paralell effects loop), the amp sounded AMAZING at an extremely low volume.

I've found that most amps don't sound good until you turn them up. Not the MTS stuff. It sounded GREAT at a low volume. I had already heard it cranked up and knew it sounded great loud; but, now I know that even at a very low volume, it KILLS!! :D
