    POD HD 500X Live Setup Tips?

    Thank you so much for your reply.Yes, I switched from combo front too Stack Front which seemed to thicken the sound. I use a JtV 69 through a Vox AC 15. I have the Lows set to -4, Focus at 620 and treble at -47. I find that I'm the trebbly one of the bunch and loose definition in my sound when I reduce treble and Brite. I'm a little confused as to where the best settings are in the eq settings above. Yes I do use amp modeling but sometimes less is better.

    POD HD 500X Live Setup Tips?

    If you don't mind me asking. On the hd500 global settings where did you set the eq at? For example , Bass setting, focus setting and treble setting. I always find my guitar tone to be very thin ,trebbly even when I role these setting back without using the amp models. Any suggestions for a good starting point. Thanks

    Hd500 global eq setting

    Hey all. OK I'm sure someone can give me and answer to this one. Preferably a simple one :-). I use my JTV 69 through my hd500 through a Vox ac15 and I wonder if someone can give me a good starting point as to where I should set my Global eq settings, There are a few variables with adjustments that I dont know anything about. OK that's all thanks, Rob
  5. Very nice , great starting place. :)
  6. Thanks edstar for your input so far. I left the volume control pot resistance to the pickup default. The tone pot resistance Ievels I have reduced to 50k from 500k and 25k from 250k . I know this probably looks like a drastic measure but I'm hoping this will reduce the amount of treble bite and mellow the tone a bit? Also what is the purpose of the capacitance function and how does this affect tone? Ok thats all I promise.
  7. I will try changes the Tone Pot settings to see if that makes a difference.I have normally just gone with the default pickup pot setting maybe its time to step outside the box. I have tried different makes and gauges ( Elixir,D'Adario,fender ) from heavy to lite gauges . My preference is 52 - 10 although I do like 46-9 any how in the end the result has always been the same. I have tweeked both settings on my amp (Traynor YCS 50) and guitar till I'm blue in the face and am still not very satisfied with the tone.
  8. Hi all, I have a JTV69 (korean) and i find that the guitar models and subsequent tones to be very brite in nature, They always sound too thin and twangy without warm body tones. My amps treble and mids are low as is the presence.Could it be the pot settings resistance? Help :-)
