    NAD: Fryette content.....

    Today I received my 2/90/2 bought from Zimbloth here on the forum. I'm really impressed with it so far, I got to mess with it a little before it got too late.

    I'm using it with the AxeFx, and all of the models shine through much clearer than with the 50/50 I was using, I noticed that immediately. The Fryette is also a lot more aggressive, especially when you push the voicing switch. The presence control is also a lot more useful. On the 50/50 if I turned the presence down, it sounded much too dark to my ears, so it stayed at 10. On the Fryette it can go from very dark to very bright, all in all the control serves more of a purpose.

    I've also returned to using the Vader, which works very nicely with the Fryette.

    I have not had too much time to mess with different models on the AxeFx, but I did test out the Energyball model, which was awesome, soooo much better sounding through the Fryette. I've never played a real Engl, but the model definitely has the right vibe, with the voicing switch pushed on the Fryette, it's pure aggression.

    On the power amp sims.....I still prefer them off so far. I tried them off, on, and on-no thump, and still the power amp sims just don't work for me through a tube power amp.

    The Fryette shipped with Sovtek KT88s and Ruby 12AX7s. Some funny things are, the circuit boards are stamped VHT and the box it came in is a VHT box, turned inside out, with the VHT logos blacked out.

    I'll take some rig pics later

    I'd imagine the circuit boards and box are just the tail end of the old stock.
