Question for anyone actually running their BE100/modded Marshall in 4CM..

Recommended Posts

Hey guys..

 

Just curious to know if anyone is running their Helix in 4CM with their Friedman BE100 or modded Marshall in 4CM?

 

Why do I ask?  Well, the plan is to keep the settings ‘neutral’ on the amp, however, I’m going to use the Helix to add an OD/tubescreamer pedal here and there (depending on the patch) to give it more bite/cut/top end etc.  But, the real question is, has anyone put an EQ somewhere within the signal chain to remove some of the mids to make it a bit ‘angrier’ or a bit more ‘metal’ so to speak?  I don’t want to completely scoop the mids, just enough for there to be some differentiation in sound and tone. Granted, the amp has the C45 and SAT switches but they cannot be activated by the Helix, you physically need to do this at the rear of the amp. 

 

The amp is incredibly versatile – we know this, but I guess it’s just a matter of whether this can be done, and if so, how.. I presume it’s an EQ block that would do the trick somewhat..

 

Thanks guys.

Absolutely it can be done. Set the amp up in 4CM. It should be pretty evident from there. At that point you'll just have to decide for yourself whether you like the sound of the EQ pre or post preamp.
