I am looking for a dual solution.

 

A powered speaker to be with with both acoustic guitar and electric. (I have tried the L3T with acoustic and loved it).

 

My question is this?

 

How does the L3T function/sound with an electric guitar using traditional pedals? 

That is, I will not be using a POD. My thought is to use n Eventide H9 and two pedals, a volume and a wah.

 

Any help would be great as I really don't want to order one, try it out and then have to return it.

Thanks

What mode were you using when you loved it with the acoustic?  I suspect you may not love the sound of your electric  guitar when run in the acoustic mode.  It will be a lot like running an electric guitar into an acoustic guitar amp.

If you switch to electric guitar mode when using your electric, you may find a pleasing sound.  Although, keep in mind that you aren't running a pre-amp, so you lose a little bit of "electric" guitar sound as far as frequencies - since electric guitar amps and speakers have their own EQ curve.  What I'm saying is that you may need to use a graphic eq pedal instead of the on board 3 band EQ - as well as use a pedal for mild overdrive tones - the electric guitar mode emulates a 2x12 guitar speaker cab, but doesn't add/offer anything for tone shaping and OD...  Any type of guitar modeling pedal (doesn't have to be a POD) will work equally well...

 

Hope that helps.

Yeah, without some kind of amp simulator, it will probably not sound good. The L3t emulates the way an electric guitar CAB sounds, but it does not also emulate a guitar amp head sound.

And if you're not going to use the L3t with a bass save yourself a little cash and you'll get the L2t because the way that L3 T is set up you will only be using one speaker because of the crossover in it.
