  1. Been down tuned 1/2 step for a year now .. no problems. Needed and ever-so-slight intonation adjustment, that's it.
  2. I switched to the Elixers and liked them a lot. Those Fenders sound interesting ..especially of that is what they used to develop the models.
  3. Did the same thing on V2 .. replaced with a MESA 12ax7 ... more low end, sounds "heavier". Tried a RUBY brand 12ax7 in V2 and it sounded frigging horrible. Had previously tried the MESA in V1 and that sounded horrible. So ... it seems like .. if you want to play .. play with V2 (12AX7 on the left). SOVTEKs are know for being transparent ..... I assume MESAs are "built for modern, heavy gain."
  4. Get new tubes. all the way around. They're not expensive.
  5. Certainly slapping a variax into a Pacifica would be a disaster .. but it sorta makes no sense .. Variax is a high end deal and these guitars may provide a high end line for Yamaha ... whose electric guitar presence is sorta non-existent right now .. Been playing my JTV-89 more and more .. it may be the finest one I own ... certainly it was the most expensive as far as MAP price ... but I got a deal on the end of the line 89s w/o trem. a steal at $650!!!
  6. I hear nothing good about Mavericks with respect to my DAW and plugins, not going near that.
  7. How'd it turn out ? My MK1 still going strong ... if Ifigure .. it is dies I can probably seel the Strymon preamp and Celestion Vintage 30 speaker for good money or use the chasis to build my own freaking amp.
  8. Seems like the JTV is still making great headway as far as sales. I just kids wish they would leave the workbench and all that stuff along so we can just build out tones and get the community going. The AMPLIFI will only further enhance the JTV experience and stimulate more sales. My JTV has always worked perfectly, just sayin'.
  9. Was that originally composed in some other language other than English and then sent to google translate?
  10. Spider Valve no longer listed in product line. Still liking my MK1 though.
  11. What make you think that the XLR out skips the pre-amp tube? You might be right .. just wondering.
  12. and if you have the Strymon ... tubes-> modeling->pre-amp tubes->power amp tubes. I've been tending on having the Strymon pre-amp maxxed to minimize the on board gain :)
  13. HA HA .. I'll take close up pics of mine next time I crack open the amp. Not releasing the schematics is stupid of Strymon as this thingy does not interefere with their pedals .. and how many people have MK1s? Although it is funny I just saw two in the Guitar Center I was at. I felt around the back of them for the tell tale double toggle switches .. nothing doing.
