Hi, I like to dig into amps models less popular, everybody loves the serpend and friedman so i'll look elsewhere :lol:

This is what those modded plexis present in thermionik (the soldano and jose plexis) inspired me... Setting are B-M-T-pres all 6. Channel jumped gain half.. Not boosted, they don't need it IMO. I had to lower the input gain to -6 to tame the gain.

I recorded the same short track with both amp to compare the sound.. the J is a bit fuzzied in a good way.. The S seem more sharp. Two very interesting amp sim I just discovered... They'll get more milleage for sure!

The bass is amped bass 100%. no di.

I used pteq-x to eq. I aimed for a very generic hot rodded rock tone.. It remind me of the bruce dickison solo era.


I compared IR with both amp model on left and right while the project was opened in reaper bu curiosity. There is celestion, my own stuff (wgs veteran 30 & et65), 3 Sigma Steve Steven (the new 2.0 thing. Can't ear the différence) and Ownhammer Recto O 70A (oh1-4)

thanks for reading.

Very nice. Would you say more about how you set up the bass?

Thanks,

Here what i found..

amped bass vst

I set the gain at 2.6, b-m-t at 5. ultra hi and lo off.

input trim at -8

I used a 3 sigma 8x10 IR but kazrog one would be perfectly fine also.

added a density mk3 compressor set aggresively at 3/4 drive, p3 timing. color maxed

no di or distortion or common bass trick. i kept it simple.

I see you've discussed your bass sound in other threads on this sub-forum, so thanks for those as well!
