So, currently I have a setup where I have Framus Cobra and Boss ms-3 (+ couple of pedals) and obviously a cabinet. I'm using the ms-3 with the 4 cable method and control the amp the via MIDI. It's the first time I actually have presets and can go from clean to lead/chunk easily and I love it.
But...the ms-3 kills the tone of the amp. Or I think it does. Apparently the effects loop of the Cobra is shitty, so I guess that could be part of the problem too. The amp sounds like the tone is coming from around the corner, there's absolutely no cut. I played with a bunch of friends and in a band situation the sound just disappears.
So I'm thinking if i should ditch the ms-3 and maybe even go with just pedals for the effects or is the parrallel effects loop of the Framus gonna ruin that plan?
Thanks for your help!
