  1. Thanks! Waiting for a moderator to approve my account.
  2. This tone is so elusive on the HD500. I've tried for hours with hundreds of combinations of cabinets, mic's, amps etc with no luck. There is something about the thick low end, yet highs that cut thru for lead work that is very special about this amp. I still use my POD XT Live because this tone is crucial to my sound. POD Farm has it as an option still as well...why not the 500 or Pro version? I don't know why Line 6 does not make backwards compatible equipment...it's maddening for all of us. The DSP should surely be able to support the sounds of the older units like the XT and X3. The sounds that those devices produced are now a part of history like the amps themselves and it's just as important to continue modeling. I would rather have the latest Line 6 board able to model a handful of amps better (HD versions) and yet keep the older (SD versions)....than to have a board that only models a handful of amps in the HD version only and completely ignore that the rest ever existed. I understand that there may not be resources available to model all the previously modeled amp in HD, but at least give us the SD versions to continue using as a courtesy to so-called 'legacy' customers.. Otherwise we are forced into hanging onto our older boards and not upgrading because we wont settle OR forced into finding a new tone that doesn't resemble anything we've come to love. I hope that Line 6 products in the future doesn't continue to abandon amps, but finds a way to be inclusive, of the models that haven't been upgraded. There is still value in having them available for many of us that have come to love, use and depend on the amps/effects that perhaps aren't first round picks.
  3. I have to agree with the frustration....whatever the cause. Unplugging the cable from the guitar every time I set it down is not very convenient....it's like my acoustic/electric Taylor, if left plugged in the battery drains. With all the technology built into the 89F, I can't believe they haven't figure this out yet. My iPad has a Li-ion battery and its standby time is infinite (not literally, but it can sit weeks)...the volume knob should be the equivalent of the magnetic cover on my iPad...and work the same to save the battery equivalently.
  4. Ok thanks. It must have already been updated and that was the differences I was hearing. So does this mean I can't use Custom 1? What's the point then?
  5. Got my 89F finally and love it. I've setup my Custom 1 and 2 settings and have noticed that the patches that I've directly copied from the other banks sound different using the Custom 1 and 2 than say the original location. I'm using various selections, copied exactly as they were from the Spank, Lester, and Acoustic banks specifically...yet they sound more 'alive' when playing them with the selection knob selected to the respective original location (ie Lester - position 1) vs where i have them in the Custom 1/2 locations. Can anyone explain this? Why are they not the same...it sounds as if by copying the patch to another location I am now modeling a model....if that makes any sense. Is this just the way it is, am I doing something wrong and if so how do I fix it?
  6. I too have the PW Satch straps...immediately installed schaller strap locks...have em on all my guitars...worth the investment/insurance.
  7. I don't think it'll be a problem...go to your local store and try one out. I have had the JTV-89F for a few weeks now and its not a problem for me...I can't imagine your technique is wildly different, but perhaps it is...worth checking out in person to make sure.
