The r&r preamp looks interesting. Which one?
I couldn't get it to work well with my SS power amp. It was triggering the amps limiters.
If I lowered the output on the G Major there was less volume overall. It pissed me off so it went back to GC. The Collossus sounds really great straight into the power amp, with no digital crap messing with the tone, though I do have a digital delay pedal in the loop for solo's.
How are the cleans on it?
The cleans are great. Pristine.
This one here, thee are a bunch of videos and they all sound great! If I can score a used one I think I'd be set, truthfully I'd like the SL/LD the Kartakou and ofr a more synthetic high gain the Rocktron Chamelon! having those three preamps running at once would be super badass!
hahaha I'm nuts!
That's a drag, I have the older Gmajor and was going to use that but I also have a Seymour Duncan Andromeda so I'd probably use that instead for delay!
I talked about it earlier in the thread, but the SL/LD is legit. Slightly tighter Recto sound without the fizz.
I think the r&r also has a total of 3 channels. It costs more though, and has more tubes I believe as well
Yup, 5 preamp tubes.
And the 2 gain channels I found were very similar. The blue channel has less gain, but has a bright switch that adds more attack to the sound. The red channel just has a shiiiit ton of gain that even makes a Recto blush.
So the question then is the extra cash for the r&r worth it compared to the kartakou?
Depends if you want that 5150 grind or that early-revision Recto fatness
The G Major still may work for you.
You should try it and see.
Tried out a Tung Sol in V1 while I was rearranging the rack. Instant fizz. It seems to be dialed in to work with the JJ's it shipped with. Also it has a ton of bass. I can't believe how good this thing sounds. Tempted to get another one just to have around.
I just have bought the colossus and Warner preamp with fast shipping Mode. As soon as i have i'll ley you know!
I did see that, and your comments are why I went looking! This will be a cool rig, I was going to get another Triaxis again and still might, but these I think suit my needs better than that.
And if it truly is a tighter recto like the Pre 500's then that is sweeeeeeet!
Plus I'm really into the old Rocktron Chameleon so that will add a neat tone.
old Rocktron Chameleon - which version since there are several of them these days?
I've always wanted one of these and the voodoo valve.
I really like the old blue face version, Martyr used one to record at least 2 of their records with it and it's always been an awesome tone to me.
Having said that, its a pain in the ass to program and they almost always have an internal gate that chops notes even if you bypass it.
But I still dig it.
After dealing with almost a week of Vestibular migraines and vertigo...time to fire this thing up...Was going to tube roll but MS said the JJ's sound fine and i agree...
