that's some serious p0rnös stuff! I dig the arm contour and the upper fret access. Controls layout would have to be different for me though....just vol, tone and a 3way 4pdt toggle lined up ;-).....
My trem of choice (non locking) would be either the Wilkinson VS100 or the new Gotoh T1802, preferably with the "old" Wilkinson Roller nut:

and Gotoh Magnum Lock locking tuners.
No beef with Schaller, but quality wise Gotoh is ways more consistent in my book.

Looking forward to hear how you like the mixed frets

I don't know if you ever tried that Schaller Vintage tremolo bridge: it blows the Wilkinson and the Gotoh away very, very easily and you don't need a Wilkinson nut there (I've the original one on my Fender Strat Plus and to be honest I cannot say how much difference it makes if compared to a good, well shaped TUSQ nut...).
It's a Floyd Rose without fine tuning and locking nut: tons of sustain, roller saddles, made of steel with a very good block, FR tremolo arm, harmonics, it works very softly, precisely and gently in both directions (up and down), it perfectly keeps tuning even when you dive b*mb like Eddie for 2 hours.
And it trills like the Devil.

The arm contour is pure love!

Thanks again for the Jescar frets ideas!
I'll let you know!

The neck heel feeling is wonderful.
This Pandora is 22 frets, mine will be 24: you can access the higher part of the fretboard as if it were a violin.
Plus I've big hands with long, thin fingers and I find it awesome.

The Virtus model has 25 frets and a slightly different neck heel's shape...but the final effect is the same.

The thumb would say a big THANK YOU! in both the cases...  :thumb-up:

hi Dante, you 're right about the emul ; you'll change setting every ten minutes until you feel good with one setting, and you'll change later... and so !

Awesome pics Kim ; this switch is pretty well built but you have to desolder all buttons to watch inside

Try a process of elimination. Use a different power amp, see if it still happens. Then, try running direct, it could be between the Stage outs and not the Recording outs. I'm sure others will chime in here to try other things. See if you can isolate the root of the problem (preamp, or cord, or power amp, or whatever). I just wanna make sure it is actually the PREAMP that's the problem

I feared the worst for my preamp and my problem was in the shitty power supply in my rack for the phantom power in my pedal

Ah...Relays, impulses...totally makes sense. So, I'll buy a box of impulses, relay them into the back of the amp, and Voila! Magic ensues.

I knew I was making that too easy. Thanks man

I could totally see that happening, however not this time. I made no changes to any patches. I have every patch preamp and fx unit programmed into my midi switcher. What's really strange is I was using a dry patch no fx other than a noise gate. Both fx units were on bypass. Matter of fact I was using your metal preset for the MP2. I really like it. Strange that it was fine, then not, then fine again. I wonder if it's an issue with the MP2 or a power amp issue? Seems to be intermittent.  :dunno:

DAMN.

That's a fine looking guitar. How's that neck heel feel when you're accessing the upper frets? I like the look of it, but I am wondering about that lump of wood there. I have another guitar like that and it really stretches my thumb!

Beautiful guitar though....man, just a work of art.

Okay, I have the Viper, I love the Viper, I want to control the beast that is the Viper. Gotta make a footswitch

Now, I can solder all day, and I can drill a hole in a box. Hell, I can even turn a wrench to tighten up a nut and figure out how to make a couple foot switches taller than the ones in front of them with extra nuts. Yeah, I guess you could say I mechanickel. That said, I cannot figure out a schematic to save my life.

So, how's about you big-brain types hook a brother up with a parts list to order from your preferred electronics supply store so I can get busy wit dis?

Heeeeere's the schematic, for your reference.

Half-correct bro. The channel switching can be done both manually and via the foot switch since there's a relais (triggered by an electrical impulse) in the circuit (inside the amp). I doubt that there are relais in there for the voicing and cab sim switches.
MJMP sure can shed some insight on that
