  1. Hey man, I'm living in Greece. I'd be interested in a 2meter cable How much would it be incl postage? Thanks
  2. Thanx for the reply, I am NOT a big fan of hardtail, I mean, I don't mind Les Pauls and Teles but I think since my 600 is my working horse I'd like it to have a tremolo (for those tricks y'know). Now, are you telling me that a mexican 2point fender tremolo would do on the 600 with the graph techs?
  3. The only guitar I can stand the maple neck is my '76 tele, wich I wouldn't replace for the world, but, the finis is nice and thin and it doesn't give you the impression that you're holding something "plastic" (like the variax) The dark glossy finnish DOES look cool though But I guess that's another talk ....right? Any suggestions for the tremolo matter?
  4. thanx for the reply Charlie Watt, really helpful Clay, it's a matter of feel. I really like the feel of rosewood My main concern is replacing the tremolo though :-(
  5. Hey there, I recently moved to the idea of replacing Variax's 600 LR Baggs tremolo bridge I would like something more...... Fendery. 2 point still, like the American standard ones, but with screwed arm. I also have the Ghost Graph Tech saddles on (great upgrade) Anybody have any idea, which tremolo bridges are fitting the 600 in dimensions with no problem? Off course I have no problem drilling larger holes for the 2 point if required Also, I have an idea of maybe replacing the neck. Nothing wrong with it but, I HATE maple. Any idea again where could I find a neck replacement? I know Warmoth was doing stuff like that but I can't seem to find anything on their page for variaxs anymore My 600 is my working horse and I'd like to shape it to my likes with no compromise. Thanx in advance
  6. I'm a little confused with what you're writing but THANK YOU for taking the time and effort Here's the thing. I have a sound, with wah, comp (usually vetta juice or tube comp), od (maybe 2 in series), then a clean bf lux, then BEFORE THE MIXER, a chorus, a comp again and a delay, then the mixer and a reverb afterwards Does the thing that I have some fxs before the mixer means I'm splittin things? Same kind of chain I have too with a dirty amp Now, I have input 1 source variax, input 2 aux, guitar in Z 1m and inputs setup global I'm going out from the L jack output (with LINE selected in button) straight into a mono channel in our mixer Does it look alright? (can you explain a little more about the "same" output?) THANK YOU again
  7. Could it be, that it's got to do with the occasional mono or stereo output of an effect (f.e mono or stereo delay, chorus) ???? Also, what's the ideal setting on the input if using JUST a variax? (f.e input 1 VARIAX, input 2 SAME) ?
  8. I just remembered that I'm using the "pre" version of the amp. Is there any differense?
  9. By saying "mute the B path" you mean to put the level of the "right channel" of the mixer all the way off, right? Some effects I have before the amp and some others (like delay and reverb) I have after the "mixer"
  10. Yes, I am using just the A path, I never use both paths since I don't have "dual sounds". And yes the mixer is also the same level as the A path (+ 3.0 if I remember correct) and off course panned in the middle (or NO pan) since I play mono. In that case what can I do? Should I put the volume of the path B in the mixer ALL the way down? (mute) Can't I have my amp going through both channels of the mixer? Is the volume from path A enough for my patch? Thanx for the quick response
  11. Hey everybody, something i noticed later and annoying me. I have a clean patch on my HD500 (using it with my Variax 600 with the ethernet cable) consisted of a clean fender amp, with a wah, compressor (tube), ovedrive (scream) another tube comp AFTER the amp and some delay and reverb. Now, when I play clean, or with the comp it's wite alright, but, when i press the od, it seems like some "dry" signal is coming out to the speaker. The signal is not with effects. It's kinda like the one you get when you connect your guitar straight into a soundcard. It's annoying cause if i take a solo and i raise the volume it's quite audible and it's uncomfortable to play My out is a straight mono jack into a mono channel of a mixer and my choice of input on HD is Variax for 1 and same for 2 Any help?
