I got a reasonably quiet unit, but noise level improvements are always welcome.
They sing like EL34's, but have more chime for those bell-like clean tones. For me the H9 is the most outstanding release of the decade though.
These cabs easily rival most 4x12's in sonic dispersion with a more portable size and weight. But those who love real analog spring reverb will surely get what the Orion is all about and love it for what it is. Due to the fact that microphones have a hard time telling the difference between this cab and a large 4x12, the Bogner 112CPS has become the industry standard for stereo and wet-dry-wet rigs as well as home recording.
The Afterneath is one of the best EarthQuaker Devices pedals and one of the most unique reverbs ever devised.
Read the Strymon DIG review. The EQ section can apply a significant presence to the lows, mids, and highs or reduce frequencies in those ranges.
As far as tone, those have a raw crisp crunch to them without being too bitey. This pedal is dripping with mojo.
Atomic AmpliFire. Would love it if they could be even smoother. This bumps up the voltage from 9 to 18 volts be sure to use only a 9-volt power supply and gives you a more open, less compressed sound. Doubletracker Pedal.
A MIDI compatible lets you conveniently change presets. Sustain Shaman , Effect Type: After hearing some of the demos, it seems to replicate a tube-amp sound really well. One of my absolute favorite amps. And is there any way to shrink it while retaining all functionality?
The Palladium Gain Stage is their take on the ultimate amp-style distortion pedal, and man, does it deliver the goods big-time. A three-position voicing switch gives access to brighter or darker settings while an EQ Bypass switch sends the preamp tone full-bore to the power amp section for open, in-your-face, boosted tone.
