    You'll get a darker tone (EQ) with bulk resistance like that. In a passive electronic guitar,

    it would be about finding the right pot and capacitor to wire in. Can't do that here, it's an active

    circuit with fixed values.


    Richie Castellano of Blue Oyster Cult tried this earlier this year, live on Facebook, with a 12k-Ohm DiMarzio.

    In real-time I double checked and told him it would too dark of a tone for his liking,... it was too dark of a tone

    for his liking. He swapped it out for an 8k-Ohm DiMarzio a day or two later.


    Thanks for the response.


    But it won't screw up the processor board it will just NOT sound as if it was on a passive guitar setup?

    Spec is 6.4k-Ohm bulk resistance,... good. Need to keep bulk resistance within a 6k-8k Ohm range,

    so as to not create problems for the processor board. Very good.


    So I guess putting in a DiMarzio DP110 FS-1 Guitar Pickup that has a DC Resistance: 14.23 Kohm isn't a good idea? What would I have to do so the processor board is happy with a 14.23 k Ohm pickup as I really would like this pickup in my JTV-69s?

    [Deleted original reply because it wasn't all that helpful, had almost no relevance to the original post regarding nylon string modeling on a Variax, was not really helpful and, in actuality, I would have deleted the whole danged thing but apparently this forum doesn't allow you to delete your post. If it does, please tell me how. Thank you for your understanding.]

  4. Line 6 have not done anything in regards to nylon guitar modeling since the Variax acoustic guitar model before the JTV's came out. Not until people bark enough, using the above suggested ideascale link, your not able to IR anything into a JTV unless Line 6 releases something. So your out of luck I'm afraid. People have been asking to swap out current models with other guitars models and we've seen nothing to this point of this happening. There is also nothing you can do with IR's on Helix/POD HD500x that will change the modelling on the JTV in the fashion you're thinking. 

  5. Here is what I found in the XT live documentation:




    Press the Soft Button under the word VARIAX and turn the Effect Tweak knob to choose ON or OFF to tell PODXT Live whether you’d like it control the Variax. When control is enabled, PODXT Live can change Variax models as you change PODXT Live channels, as described on page 4•10



    pretty sure it change my JTV when I had it connected via the VDI.

    Has anyone hooked up a JTV 69s to a PODxt Live pedal?  I've read that there is limited compatibility between the two, but haven't found documentation on what the limitations are.  Any input is appreciated.  Thank you.

    Yes, when I first got my JTV I connected to my XT live and all the XT was able to do was change what model of guitar on the JTV. No custom tunings are available on the XT. This is all from memory as I switched to HD500x soon after.

    So I've watched the two videos on setting a virtual capo - when I push my model button down and get it and the tuning select wheel to blink, as soon as I move the tuning select to where I want to store openE (modal in this case), the tuning select knob stops blinking and I get nothing saved... every time.  It seems as if this does not want to be this difficult - any suggestions on how I can store OpenE tuning in what is now the factory "Model" position on the tuning wheel?  

    Also after watching some of the videos I see where you might be having the problem. First, you can't store open E to Model like you want to do, the way you may think it works. Model would then store the open E to Spank 1 if that's the tuning you want for Spank 1, if you had it on T-Model 5, it would save it there. It saves the tuning with the model selected. I'm guessing you just want to have an Open E tuning on one of the tuning positions(tuning knob), just choose any other one other than Model and Standard. When you push the Guitar model selector after, it goes to audition mode, you'd have to hold the Guitar selector knob for about 2.5 sec for it to save the new tuning. I hope I made sense in my explanation but if you need more clarification then please post.

    Thank you so much, Phil, no, mine was second hand, it didn't come with anything! So I need the VDI cable (which I know) and a stand-alone VDI interface (which I don't know).  :)  Can you give me a link to an interface like that, please? Can I buy the one that was supposed to come with the guitar?

    You'd need this:




    But do a google search to see if you can find these used or other sites as this price seems a little hight to me.

    Hi all

    I've FINALLY got a midi cable to connect to the DT25 and updated v2 firmware.  DTedit connects fine and I can make changes and it changes on the amp.  What I can't figure out is that there are 2 preamp sets per channel making 16 possible presets, but i can't see how this works.  There doesnt seem to be a manual anywhere to explain this. 

    So, question is, how do I access all 16 amps from my amp when I'm not connected to DTedit?


    You'd only be able to access 4 amps when not connected to DTedit using the I, II, III, IV switch. What you program in DTedit for these will correlate once you've applied the programming. Hope this helps. 



  10. Thank you guys for all your help. will definitely play with it tomorrow. It is the New SDD.


    Did you ever figure out how to use the POD to control the SDD-3000 pedal? The only thing I have figured out is when doing patch changes on the POD it then changes the SDD to a corresponding patch. Eg: POD HD 500x, Bank 15 patch(preset) C, then changes SDD to patch(preset) 30A. I'd like to be able to use the expression pedal or foot switches on the POD to change things on the SDD but can't figure out the MIDI implementation using the CC's. Any insight would be grateful. 



  11. The first way that comes to mind would be to put the HX in the effects loop of the POD. To control the HX use a MIDI cable from the POD to the HX, not sure how in depth this could be but worth a try if you have a MIDI cable or 2 around. I do a very simple setup with my Korg SDD-3000 pedal in the effect loop of the POD and use one MIDI cable from the POD to the SDD. All it does is change program patches when I change on the POD the SDD follows. 


    Hope this helps somewhat. 



  12. Just to update... I put new EH EL84s and a new EH  12ax7 in the amp and so far, the problem with the presence (or any knob) jumping went away.


    Can't see how changing the tubes would fix it.

    Could it be a dirty(or bad) potentiometer on either the DT25 or POD 500x? If you have these set extremely different and the dirty one cuts in, thus changing your settings as it seeing a different value. Remember you can change both pots on each side, DT25 or POD 500x. This might be your problem. 



  13. Photos do not do justice but here's a look.  




    Do the necks feel different or very similar profile wise? I see the US model has the truss rod adjuster on the body side as opposed to the Korean on the head stock side, so they are making the necks differently in that matter was curious if it continues onto the neck profile as well. 



  14. I have used 9's on my JTV-69s and they worked fine. After reading a few posts on this very topic and how it seems to work better with the 10's for the acoustic modelling I went back to the 10's. Plus the fact that The Edge of U2 uses 10's on his Strats and I wanted the closest sound to him as I could get.
