Firehawk FX user asking HD500x users a question about JCM 800

Recommended Posts

Hey HD500(x) players.

 

I am writing to you from the Firehawk FX team. I figured it was advantageous to post in here as it seems way more active than Firehawk FX, and due to the fact that the architecture of the modelling is essentially the same.

 

I got my FHFX in April and since then I have pretty much loved the crap out of it. Been really trying hard to transition into digital and craft tones that are very solid sound, organic and 'real'. So far I have created lots with the Marshall Lead 100, Ac30, tweed man, etc...

 

However, the one amp that eludes me is the JCM 800. In the FHFX its showing as a "HD" amp but my god this thing sounds HORRID. I really don't understand how it can sound so bad. Compared to all the other amp models it sounds like pure tinny crap. I have tried so many various settings and nothing really seems to work. I know that with the 500X there is the model pack with the remastered 2204 model. I am not sure if this is the one in the FHFX ( I am gonna say probably not! )

 

Any tips with working this amp model? Even with the amp volume slider on 100, it lacks CONSIDERABLY in the body department compared to my other amp models which are only at like 40 or 50 on amp volume.
