It's amazing how tight, clear, fast and big the low end is on the Dino. It's something that you need to be in the room to appreciate.
The other thing is how tight and precise this amp is, but never feel stiff or dry.
Those are Celestion 65 speakers in the WEM cabinet, which is what we used with the Dino, Cameron, 2C+ and most of the Frank Levi #34 JMP.
Found two more in the camera.
Channel three with boost off.
Yep... the gain is at around 2:00, and the Red Boost is off. The preamp tubes are the stock Tungsram that Larry selected for the amp. This Ibanez is a very smooth sounding guitar. But the amp also doesn't get too saturated without the Red Boost engaged. Which is perfect for me, because I can get the typical Dino gain, tightness and fast attack with or without saturation. It still has a lot of gain on the third channel increasing the gain knob, and without the boost. we just didn't need it when they were trying the amp.
are you using the volumes at the same levels? Also, what speakers? These G12-65 seems to be quite smooth and dark compared to Greenbacks and V30s
I still haven’t found a preferred setting on the amp, since a lot of different people used it at the studio, so it was more their settings.
Another thing I’ve forgot to mention, is that all the Three channel switches were off, which also brings the aggressive character down quite a bit, especially the mids and the bright one.
So far, my favorite cab with this amp is a 97 Anniversary, with Greenback reissues and a Kerry Wright 4x12 with blackback 30 55hz
Funny thing is... there is not a single time I’ve plugged this amp and it disappointed. Best multichannel amp I’ve ever heard by far.
This takes some time, as there are really many many amazing sound in the Brit channel alone. To be honest I stay 90% in this one channel alone. That channel and the volume pot of the guitar is completely sufficient for me to go from blues to 80s hard rock without touching the amp. On the other hand the clean channels are the best clean channels I have ever played.
I also almost never use the the bright switch. The rest of my gear tends to be on the bright sight anyhow. With some Strats I find the fat switch useful, with most guitars I've tested it is not necessary/too much. What I really like from time to time is the middle switch (can't remember the name right now). Adds some nice bite and lifts you in the mix even more. Very nice where it matches...
Sounds like perfect matches. Haven't had the chance to play with 55Hz Blackbacks yet. I hope I will be able to do some day... And yes, I love the Dino as much as you do! Tone heaven (have to add I am more in the blues to hard rock field, not a metal player; the Dino is often described as metal amp but I think that is not sufficient. It covers so much more than metal, which it does amazingly well too of course).
Sounds greatSounds FANTASTIC SBlue!
I recently did a demo track with my 822 as well - unfortunately, my studio gear isnt anywhere near as nice as yours
You can always tell that "Larry" channel 3 sound though!
