My YJM sig strat (sd fury) → the revival drive pedal → RR100 ( a 1959 marshall 69’ clone, basically a 100 watt plexi super lead built the old way ) → 1960B stock cab ( 4 x12 w/ T75s) → SM57 → DAW.
The compact revival drive hot rod is a great option.
That’s very interesting bro, I wish I could do that!
This pedal is particularly tweakable for that purpose. So many options to suite a variety of amps, at least in theory, I’m a one amp guy but it’s nice to be able to tweak for a change, my normal rig was the same gear but with a DOD 308, which is more like an on off thing, its doesn’t really clean up that well, but then I have the amp set to over the edge.
You probably understand all this much better, I’m not effectively familiar with how these things exactly work. It could well be that I’m still in the honeymoon phase but I do feel there some sorcery going on in here.
My initial reactions were. This thing is heavy, very heavy for it’s size, best build I’d ever seen too. Plugging it in was another thing, after a few days I realised I’ve never played a more dynamic pedal, the 308 feels kind of static in the way it responds, the revival is super sensitive to muting etc, feels very different too. I’m finding a lot more nuances than with the other pedals, ( have and had quite a few ). Things I took for granted or never though would be applicable at such high gain levels are now very much active, the overtones etc are very determined by picking attack and dampening. This really put me on the edge and challenged me in the most enjoyable way. I’m still dialling it it, right now its very bright and not sure where to place it in the mix, early days and I ain’t no pro.
Not for me, I’ve been back and forth between digital and tube and hybrids too, I personally would pick a real cab with an SS everything even, over IR. I had a kemper for years and started playing again with Guitar Rig 2, tube amps in tween etc. Also I don’t play out anymore so I’m not really qualified to comment.
This is a point of contention, I’ve figured this is a universal truth but with one nuance, the artists performance is aware of the gear in use, which effects the performance, and this performance, hopefully enhanced by said gear is what the audience picks up on. A rather indirect but certainly linked experience.
