Since a few have jumped ship, I'm curious to know what you're playing though now.
I'm still a fan although I've sold most of it; Drew's post still gave me GAS.

I'm not out of mts be any means. I realized I have too much tonal overlap, some tones just aren't for me and I don't need to keep them. Although, I could get out of mts completely and be very happy.

If I was to leave, I'd pick up a Friedman BE and some variant of the Rectifier and call it good....if not, just as expensive Wink

I gravitate to these tones on MTS anyway.

Used a GSP1101 rack unit for a while, which sounded killer. But I was on a quest to shrink even smaller lol. So my live rig now is a HD500X (Line6), and my backup board is a RK FlyRig 5 (the Richie Kotzen version).

Granted, my band made the switch to in-ears and running everything direct/no amps. But I will have MTS in my studio once it's finished, so I'm not gone permanently lol.

Well I tried to go to the darkside twice but neither time the amps gave me the sound/tone I thought they would be. First time I bought a Mesa Single Rectifier Solo 50 head and the second time was a Friedman Runt 50. Neither sounded anywhere near as good as the MTS stuff I have! The Runt's clean channel was unusable because it was ten times louder than the dirty channel.
I was really disappointed with it. I almost rolled the dice and bought a Marshall JVM410 but chickened out after the 2 previous attempts. Just going to stick with my MTS stuff.

I'm still using my MTS stuff and patiently waiting for the Synergy stuff. In the meantime I picked up a Friedman Smallbox combo and a 1978 Marshall JMP modded by Friedman with BE/HBE. The JMP is currently my fav. Can't wait to try some Synergy stuff in the effects loop!

Don't get a JVM410...Get a Mashall+ and have the tone you wanted all along....Those JVMs are so finicky and most sound different from one another to an extent...Finding a "good one" is really hard....I think that's why there's so many Marshall-esaque modding companies like Cameron and Friedman....They know the tone Marshall folks really want doesn't come from Marshall very often anymore...

Thanks Matt. I think I am pretty good with the Marshall tones for now with the JPlex,JFM800 and my Gigmods SLiV. Some day I will have to try a Mashall+!

I still haven't done this, did sell a lot of modules though.....

Latest piece of fun is an AX8....it won't replace MTS but it sure is excellent for messing with.

I still have my MOD50 head and five modules, but the fact that I can't get an OD/dist pedal to sound good through the T/D or BMAN modules is kind of a dealbreaker.
My other amps are a Peavey JSX combo, a Peavey XXX head (original version) and a Fender Super Reverb head/212 + dirt pedals (not exactly top shelf stuff, but they work for me).

I'm leaning toward slimming it down to just the JSX and Super Reverb. The JSX takes pedals much better than my MOD50 does (on the T/D or BMAN modules), and the XXX is way too bright, even with JJ 12AX7s.

I may change my mind after NAMM - having only two modules at a time is really limiting. A SYN-2 would put me back at the M4 level.
