Caveats = phone recording, sloppy playing
I said I'd post this comparison this weekend in another thread so here it is. Simply, the first heavy sound is the triple rec red channel, the second heavy sound is the HD500 Treadplate Pre amp model into the same Triple Rec power amp, just skipping the Mesa's preamp section.
The overdrive and noise reduction on both are coming from the HD500, I'm MIDI switching the head with a Mini Amp Gizmo.
Sounds good man! Do you use the gizmo to switch the amp's channels when you click a preset on the HD500?
