    Guys, I seriously need your advice..

    So I recently bought a bogner uberschall head that I tried through a few different
    cabs and I know I love how it sounds, it's a really great sounding amp, tried it through
    engl,rivera and orange cabs in differrent stores in Israel.

    The thing is that my band doesnt have a reharsel space of our own and while there are
    412 cabs in reharsel rooms in Israel, they always have those crappy marshall 1960 cabs loaded with T75's, this was the only cab I tried with this amp that made it sound terrible,
    really undefined and muddy sound, I was trying to tweak it through our two hour reharsel,
    nothing made it any better.

    I'm using a framus panthera custom 7 string guitar through it by the way,
    it's made from mahagony and has ebony board and a flame top, ovangckol neck
    and SD Jb and 59 pickups.

    I thought about bringing the MXR 10 band EQ I have to our next reharsel but it makes the amp sound completely different even without turnning one frequency, I dont like that, I just want to shape the bogner's sound.

    I tried using my maxon od9 infront of the amp but it didnt help alot.

    Your suggestions? How can I make the asmp sound tighter and clearer through the T75's?

    im surprised youre complaint isnt that "it sounds like goddamned fizzle"

    Honestly, Not a whole lot you can do. Could you pick up a 212 to go with it?

    Tweak, bring a tubescreamer, and/or just deal. You can't always be really picky about your tone in a rehearsal or live context, depending on backline.

    I've honestly never had a problem with t75s sounding flubby. Try turning your gain down and the bass down on the amp itself. Ubers have a huge amount of low end that can get away from you very quickly. I've owned an uberschall before so i'm not talking out my ass here. tweak with your eyes closed, bass down mids up, trebel and presence to taste. a boost will also tighten that thing up too.

    Yeah, if you love how the amp sounds, but just not at your rehearsal space, I'd say just deal with it - your amp is capable of giving you the sound you like, so just make do for rehearsal and get the tone you like live.

    It's just frustrating paying that much for an amp and not enjoying it in reharsels.
    I'll try taking down the bass, the gain is on 1 o'clock, looks pretty usual to me.

    And yeah it also hasd this kind of fizz through these speakers, really annoying, I

    We have the same problem here in the US with rehearsal studios...

    The solution:

    1) Bring your own cab
    2) Deal with it

    Both options suck.

    Can you take your cab to rehearsal?
