cclement Posted March 24, 2015 Share Posted March 24, 2015 Well...I've taken the plunge, and the water is great! I posted previously that I was getting good tones with my Vetta II/HD500x combination.. but thought I could do better. So since then I've sold my Vetta II (and my old AX212 as well) and purchased a Alto TS110A powered speaker (with another on the way). And now... oh the tones I'm getting! I got my TS110A on Sunday afternoon and spent most of the evening putting it thru its paces and tweaking my patches for the new setup, and getting it all ready for tonight's band rehearsal. Needless to say, the guys in the band were a bit shocked when I walked in with my guitar case in one hand, the HD500X in my bag over my shoulder, and the TS110A in my other hand - no more 73lbs amp to lug around! But once I got it all hooked up and we started playing... they all commented about 1) how good it sounded and 2) how they could all hear me much better - The TS110A was on on top of a bunch of other gear with the horn at about shoulder level facing the band. I've still got more tweaking to do - now that I've heard my patches at "stage volume" - but I'm at least 80% there. The only real issue of the evening was the big differences in levels between patches, but I knew that was going to happen. But since I have one patch per song (I turn ON/OFF FX as needed, and roll my volume on the guitar around a bit for tone/gain differences), it didn't mess with the vibe at all. So... I'm a total believer/convert to running a FRFR rig now. I'm getting awesome tones that have that something "extra" I was missing with my old rig. 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
