Must have taken a while to amass all that gear... why are you selling it all? In the end have you found that you prefer the real deal to the modules?

Unfortunately I am in Canada so can't make an offer on anything.

Well, believe it or not, I'm sticking with my stock Egnater duals rig. (2 M4's, 8 modules)
To be honest, I was never a fan of them until I added a Two Notes Torpedo Studio to my rig.

My theory is, modules are designed around a neutral power amp/speaker combination.
The average MTS user has one power amp and one cab, so modders have to incorporate as much of the original amp into the module as possible.

With the Torpedo, I have the luxury of dialing in a virtual power amp, in a myriad of ways, and then select a speaker/cab/mic of choice. Tweak the eq as necessary.

I literally can take one module, dial up three different power amp profiles, with three different cabs, and have it sound like three completely different amps.
At that point, having a half dozen flavors of Marshall became redundant.

The tones aren't identical to the original amp, but I don't tone chase trying to nail a specific artist/song/album tone. To me, that's a futile waste of time.
If it sounds good and inspires me creatively, it's a good tone.

For the curious, the signal chain is:
Guitar--> RJM Effect Gizmo--> ISP Decimator Pro Rack G--> Torpedo Studio--> digitally into Helix Rack (for modulation, delay, verb)--> digitally into DAW
The Effect Gizmo has a Dunlop CryBaby rack wah and few select dirt-effect pedals in the loops. M4's are in loops 11 and 12.

I monitor through headphones, or RCF NX12SMA's if my son wants to play along with the digital drums.
I don't play out, so the 9,000 lb. rack isn't an issue.

This rig isn't for everyone, but it fits my needs, and I'm 100% happy with it. (ok, 99% happy - it's obscenely expensive)

I had my rig setup very similar to that at one point. I liked it a lot. There's something about 2 RM100's in stereo that just blows that setup away live though. I keep going back and forth. Recently I think I've decided I'm just going to have both rigs.

I'm sure the Torpedo makes a huge dif though. I had a speaker sim in the chain but nothing quite that nice. Maybe next year Wink

Ok, here's the deal, Thursday my daughter goes in for surgery.
The next week or so I'll be taking care of her while she's recovering. I won't have the time for selling/packing/shipping.
So, Tuesday May 2nd, I'm temporarily suspending my sale for about a week or so.
All of today's transactions will ship out by Wednesday.
If you've been sitting on the fence over a module or RM4, speak now - or you'll have to wait.
Thanks. Russ

EDIT: My modules arrived today man. Considering they are 'loose women'..they still sound great and tight! \m/ Very Happy

Take care Russ and wish for a speedy recovery for her.
