I posted a thread a while back asking if anyone else thought the sigx didnt have as much gain as other high gainers. I swapped the tubes. The gain is back :rock: :thumbsup:

That sounds killer.

Curious what are your settings ?

The settings are pretty extreme. Gain and boost are at 3 o clock. 100w, More. Treble and at 3 o clock, mids at 11, bass at 1, presence at 3 and depth at noon.

What tubes did you roll through?

My sig:x is in need of a retube. I have not played it for a year or two. I need to pick up some KT88's and get it rolling! Iove that amp. I only can have five active rigs at a time... Lol.

Thanks man! Do you still drop in the UG Forums? I haven't been there in ages.

And I just used JJ tubes in this. They seem to work pretty well.

I always flip gear but after sitting down with it and learning the amp better I couldn't get rid of it.

That sounds great! Maybe the best Sig X clip I’ve heard.

Nah. I don't hang out on forums much these days but when I do I'm either here or the Splawn boards. GGF seems really active so I may kick it over there too when I get bored.

JJ's seem to be getting a lot of hate lately but I've been really happy with them. Granted I have not bought any new ones in about a year. Really dig the clip. Very metalcore'ish :D

I only changed the power tubes on my Sig X twice. The preamp tubes were changed once.
Actually your settings are not that different than how mine is set up right now. I run the bass and depth higher.

Scooped clean / Point of break-up

Clean Channel:
Brite
Norm or Boost
100W
Open
Volume - 9-10:00
Treb - 2:30
Mid - 10:00
Bass - 2:00
Pres - 1:30
Depth - 2:00

Fat and 40W if going for a more Hiwatt voice.

Modern Crunch

Rhythm Channel:
Burn
Gain I - 3:00
Gain II - 5:00 / full
Boost On
More Mode
100W
Master - 9:00
Scoop
Treb - 3:00
Mid - 9:30
Bass - 2:30
Pres - 3:00
Depth - 2:30

For a other voice I switch both Live and Wood.

Singing Lead

Lead Channel:
Brit
Gain I - 2:00
Gain II - 5:00 / full
Boost or Norm
More Mode
40W
Master - 9:00
Wood
Treb - 2:00
Mid - 10:00
Bass - 2:30
Pres - 3:00
Depth - 2:30

Sometimes I use a Fulldrive if I want more saturation with all three channels.
