Topic: PLEASE!! G-Major Help!!!

This type of thing happened to me when I tried to use my G-Major with My Carvin V3. I figured that I had to send my Midi pedal to the amp first and then the amp to the G-Major. Although, I'm not completely familiar with Midi stuff yet. But if all you're using is the Expression pedal, I believe all y...

Re: tony's oz tone

TMAC uses power amps in conjunction with his amp rig. This allows him to dial in a certain tone on his amps at a certain volume and then boost his main volume with the power amps. I've only seen him use a power amp when he uses the Hughes and Kettner All Access preamp. With that, uses the Carvin TS...

I think he may be talking about the actual clean tone.
For that sound, it seems that Steve always uses the split neck and middle pickup selection. That's where that very bubbly clean tone begins. Maybe add some compression. The Boss CS-3 works fine for me when I'm looking for that sound.

I've done that a couple of times. There's a screw with some springs or something under it on the opposite side. You can remove that and use something to push the stump of the arm out. I lost the screw and springy thing, but it works the same without it.

http://www.soundclick.com/bands/pagemusic.cfm?bandID=531592 I used my Carvin 747C through a Legacy. I used a Sonic Maximizer and a G-Major(for noise gate only) in the loop. I started the "theme" but have yet to add a harmony to it and something for the verses. Then there's the solo section, fixing a...

The Carvin V3. They recently came out with the combo version, no onboard reverb though, I belive. It is a very versatile amp though, which seems to be what you're looking for. Master volume, so you can play at lower volumes, when necessary. Great price too. You really can't go wrong with this amp th...

As far as I know, Tony Macalpine didn't use anything but a digitech effects processor, his Carvin dc747, and a Legacy. I don't believe the Legacy was modified. I use this setup, with a G-Major instead of a digitech. You probably won't be able to get that sound with Evolutions, especially with a six ...

It depends on what you want it to do. The G-Major is a cheap processor, but only in price. The quality of the effects are pretty amazing. You'll still have your original tone but with effects. If you want it for just delay, reverb, chorus, etc., it's my idea of perfect. If you want any odd Vai sound...

Excuse me for my lack of knowledge on tubes stuff, what's exactly a tube preamp? Mike a guitar combo amp, or any guitar amp head, consists of a preamp and a power amp. The preamp basically creates and shapes your sound. The power amp amplifies it. I say tube because it just sounds so much better to...

You can try what i'm doing for a practice setup. I bought one of those Epiphone Valve Jr. heads. The combo would be nicer, but I have enough cabs to use the head. After a while I bought a used Peavey Rockmaster tube preamp. I use my G-major through the master efects loop of the Rockmaster, then send...

Thanks for that detailed response. Sorry for being a dumb ass, but :roll: If I want to use Only the speakers of the combo, do I just plug the output of my line 6 pod into SPEAKER OUTPUT 1 (which already has silver plug in already. Is this going to the speakers?) on the back of the Legacy??? (power ...
