30 minutes with the Archon last night solidified it's postion as #1
That sounds like a party to me!Thinking about Les' recent comments on getting his ultimate tone, I've been experimenting recently with a touring rig........ that I may never even use
I took a leaf out of Mayer's book when he set up a W/D/W using a Bricasti and a pair of active big ATCs. I've got two different "wet" setups to run either side of my Two Rock centre amp, and I'm in the middle of testing the first right now. I love these experiments, as in the old days I used to run a pair of Boogies, as well as a rack of FX and some additional Boogie power amps - just never in such an orderly and (relatively) straightforward fashion. Thanks to John Suhr for making this kind of thing so straightforward; though I've no doubt that PRS could do something very similar if they wanted to, of course. No Bricasti as yet, however.
I got Mike Rutherford's stage left and right Fender Tone Masters a while back (the Zinky-era ones) and I've been feeding them with signal off a Suhr RL from the speaker output of my TR Akoya. That goes into a TC Reverb 4000, and on into the Tone Masters.
After this, I'll try running the 4000's output into a Hafler/ATC 20SL setup instead.
Conclusions so far? This much fun should probably be illegal.
I play my DG30 so often, and with such wonderful results, that mine is pretty much tied with the HXDA for #1, for all practical purposes.My DG 30 Custom has taken the #1 spot over my trusty Boogie Studio .22 . It is SO delicious , certainly not for everyone, but if it fits your style it is sonic nirvana.
