have you seen the crap they're selling now? it's totally overdone and waaaaaayyyy overpriced.

That's happening since 1984...  :lol: :lol: :lol:

I haven't looked at my trim pots yet. But,  I have enjoyed playing with od1 and od2 on 10 by turning down the output volume.  :headbanger:

Me too!  :thumb-up:

But I'm going to replace R17 and see...  >:D
Furthermore, as soon as he will have some MDRT again, MJMP could help us more.

Where/how do you set Ouput volume pot with OD1 = OD2 = MG = 10.0???  :lol:
It should be around 9 'o clock or less....isn't it?
Or no more than that...
And how do you set the overall EQ?

Maybe we could agree about a test setting for our MP-1s and see if all of the units behave the same...

Lowering the output volume does tame the beast quite a bit.

Try this:

1) set OD1 and OD2 trimpots to lower value
2) create a patch with (very) high gain settings
3) lower Ouput Level pot untile the Beast is 100% quiet

Does it work for you as well?  :lol:

Well this is what you get when you put an accountant at the wheel instead of a musician.

epic winner

In the meanwhile, I've 2 560K resistors and MJMP confirmed that 560K is a good value to replace R17.  :headbanger:

About internal OD1 and OD2 trimpots, they are set to 0 already on my MP1 and:

1) there's plenty of gain anyway
2) the squeal issue is still present

As MikeB already did, another test on the third MP-1 with this issue could be a good thing.
Also verify what happens to the squeal with your high gain settings when lowering Output Level pot.

f*ck.
As I wrote to MJMP, I've got my welder repaired...and now I'm struggling with resistors!

R17 is 430K but I can only find 470K resistors around...and putting too many resistors in series seems to be not a good idea, when you've to put them all together on the tubeboard...  :lol:

Stay tuned.

It finally happened.  :thumb-up:
f*ck them.

Next one: Fender.
They started an aggressive email campaign to attempt to sell anything: guitars, online lessons, pedals, pots, dishes, mattresses...

Ok, so I turned down the output volume pot and the squeal went away.  I have been pretty busy and then got sick so I haven't been motivated to do another test of the thresholds.  I also haven't yet adjusted the trimpot.  More to come.  Got to sort out all my levels again by tomorrow for the jam.  Should be good.  I was able to play with OD1,OD2 and MV on 10 each.  Output pot was way down though.

Hey Mike!
So...it looks we're on the same side of the road!  :lol:
Where can you set Output pot with OD1 and OD2 at 10.0???
I set OD1=OD2=7.5 and MV=5.5 and I can set the Output pot around halfway before the squeal starts...and a little over halfway if I decrease highs and presence...or ODs, of course.

By the way, I've the 100K resistors ready but I've been busy as well and then my welder broke 2 days ago and it needs to be repaired...or I need a new one...but this is NEW and f**king expensive!  :lol:

FYI, my internal trimpots for OD1 and OD2 gain are set to minimum (and there's a lot of gain anyway...).

Interesting things...

My 1987 PRS Custom and my 2013 Gibson SG Std show the same issue with G string at 12th fret, the PRS being the worst of all!  :lol:

It seems the only guitar I own that doesn't show this behavior is the 150 euros Kramer Baretta Special...ahahahahah!!!
That guitar with a JB really rocks.  :headbanger:

My only regret, is I feel I should be a better guitar player than I am for the length of time I have been playing.  I started with I was 14-15.  You'd expect me to be Yngwie by now  :lol:  but I aint!  :amaze:

Trust me, mate: when you'll be 46, this will be meaningless as well.  :lol: :lol: :lol:

Well striving to be better I hope is something I will always care about, otherwise what would be the point?  But I get what you mean.

The point is: do your best having fun and forget the rest!  :headbanger:

I wonder if it's a resonant frequency thing  :dunno: , have you tried dropping the tuning a 1/2 tone or tone and see/hear if it has any affect ?

Yes, it is...but is coming out somewhere from neck (or fretboard?) wood quite for sure: most probably the resonant peak is too close to strings resonant peak and in that case (and that case only) the effect is that neck resonance cancels some frequencies when the G string is played at 12th fret.
I attempted to change the tuning with the previous strings gauge and it didn't change a lot, if I remember right (or maybe I just raised the G string... :dunno:): I will do another test with the new strings gauge to see what happens.  :thumb-up:

I would not call this "a problem" but "a behavior", at the end.
It's made of wood...and the wood is alive: you cannot be 100% sure about final result until the instrument is finished.  :lol:
