My Son of Boogie is a glorious amp when plugged in directly. I will never give up my pedals, but there's always a place for the straight-through approach.

I don't have a Jube, but I too have been running less and less effects out front. Technically speaking, I just moved them from a pedal board to inside the amp. :lol:

I have practice tonight. I will probably leave the delay off and see if I can get through the whole set straight into the amp. should be intersting to see how far I can make it before turning it on :lol: It's an addiction.

you don't need it if it's like his in a loop no body can hear it anyway and it just makes the glorious straight tone murky .

Man I love the clean channel on the BE but per Atrox’s suggestion, I just messed with rolling volume on the dirt side and it cleans up REALLY well and sounds killer! I am digging the volume knob ride for sure.

Lead delay is not really something to be heard... actually when done correctly you do NOT hear it in the mix, it's more of a feel thing for the player, it changes the attack and decay of longer notes.. dry guitar is cool but it doesn't work for everything.

Fretless is on crack and thinks delay in front of a distorted Jube sounds good.

It doesn’t. :call:

pfff , loops are the death of rock amps , they make them so they don't work anyway as a deterrent to the semi-toan deaf.

Hey! I can hear a semi-tone! :mad:

It's second-tier, but that goes without saying... :cop:

the ONLY place i can say i don't agree with you is a mesa mark. then you just throw an eq in em.


but otherwise.. i'm totally with that.

in my mind... put a clean boost out front for solos, and set your gain as high as you need it for rhythm work on the amp, set the treble a bit too bright for nomal playing, roll your git tone back to like 7 for your tone so you have some extra cut if you need it, and use your volume knob and tone knob for everything else.

then just leave yer amp alone.

i know.. it's totally backass old school. but it's ROCK... :lol: it's fucktarded. fx are awesome, and i'm stoked you guys are able to use 'em. and some guys even kick ass at using em and making it sound cool.

i suck at it and choose to stay sucking at it. :D just gimme one working gain channel and some knobs and get the fuck off my lawn.

Fretless has been wearing earplugs for too long and forgets to take them out in order to notice that delays in front of distorted amps add awful noise and harshness and the repeats sound like ass especially with long trails. Also he's a bassist and maybe you can get away with failure as a bassist cause who listens to bass anyway..

Am I right? :call: :nerd:

Yeah delay in front of distortion is a no-no for me.

delay in front of old-school drive tones, like a tweed deluxe, can sound great. you have to be REALLY conservative with the delay settings (short delay times, low levels) but when done right, you can get that on-the-verge-of-catastrophe sound. of course, in front of a high-gain amp you simply get a full-on-catastrophe.

:lol:
