You've got the BE and HBE? How much of a difference is there between the two? Same basic tone but the HBE has more gain?

More gain and low end on the HBE...it's also hairy!

I may put a few power chords on the DI out...if I get a break over the weekend.

From what I read on the Synergy website, channel two has more gain? Can you detect a difference between the two channels?

From the Synergy Website: "Channel two carries a similar voice to channel one, while frothing with even more harmonically rich gain on tap."

I'm not sure if it's more gain stock or the pot taper is different..I did think I was imagining things when it sounded a little different switching channels with all controls at noon...hmm

The two channels on the SLO are the same. Channel 1 is not lower gain for a clean channel. Of course, you can turn the gain knob down but it is still the high gain side of an SLO.

The description for the HBE said it was different on the Synergy website, but that has been corrected after I posted about it on the Synergy Facebook page.

Well after some humming and hawing I've taken the plunge - Syn-2, VH4, HBE and SLO ordered.

Would have liked some good demos - if the Synergy people are listening get Pete Thorn on it ASAP :)

Now I have to wait for the shipping to the UK and the inevitable import tax!

Once it gets here I'm going to put the SLO head to head with my dual JF SLOD-100, should be interesting as the JF mod was so good I sold my Soldano SLO after getting it!

A bit of a non sequitur here, but I was excited to see that Engl just signed on to produce a module. Hopefully this signals that Synergy is going to cover the field, genre wise.

Got my SYN1/SLO/HBE today

I was very happy to receive my SYN1 and the SLO and HBE modules today. I really like the cab simulated XLR output. Great products, worth the wait and the relatively high price!

The VH4 and HBE are here, and they're good. Really, really good. I'm sure my new-to-me Friedman-modded RM100 helps, but these are the best tones I've gotten out of a modular setup to date.
