I'm getting no where with this and need some tips for a basic set up.
I picked up a wizzer-modded ts7 to go in front of my (older 2ch) dual recto.
I was told that running my gain high and prescience high was a cause of a lot of my noise issues even with a noise reduction pedal
So, I cranked the gain down to 1 or 2 on the amp, the channel volume about noon and the master/loop control that takes over when the loop is on, and the prescience down to about 9'oclock. This is basically a clean tone.
Stepping on the ts7 with all settings around 9 oclock, nothing really happens. at noon, i just get a little louder, and tons of feedback, but i still don't have any break up. I'm at a blues tone at best. Cranked to 3pm its just a mess and has no definition at all, but it's still not any type of distortion tone i want to play metal with. It honestly sounds like the 'devil music' preset on line 6 if you know what i mean.
So, what am i doing wrong? Everyone seems to swear by this type of set up and I think it sounds horrid.
how is your EQ set up?
