edstar1960 Posted November 11, 2013 Share Posted November 11, 2013 My JTV59 is on 1.71 flash. I have noticed that the D-string (4th-string) seems to be louder, more prominent than the other strings, but more importantly, it produces an odd sound, almost like it has it's own reverb. I connect the JTV59 to my HD500 via VDI, and this odd sound appears when all effects are off and I am just using an amp model. The low E, and A sound normal, just the string sound coming through, but the D has this pronounced reverb/echo, almost like it is a plucked D on an acoustic guitar. On some guitar models, particular the SEMI pos 3, this can almost sound like it has a flange effect on the notes played. I also have an odd overtone that is apparent on the high-E which is like a very quick echo or twang, so you don't get just the plucked note. This is noticeable when compared to a plucked note on the same fret position for the B string. There is something else added when plucking the same position on the E. This can occur on the open or on any fret position. However, the D string "solo-reverb" or "acoustic-twang" sound is very prevalent, and comes through on all models. It gets accentuated when playing an AC15 model, as the vox trademark bark becomes a really annoying mid-range honk with the D string. I wondered whether anybody else has experienced this or something similar? I hope I have described it well enough as it is difficult to put it into words. I will try to capture it in a recording and post for review. Thanks in advance. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
