I know you are aware of that Harley, and MJMP knows that too. I figured the 3TM was probably a whole 'nuther thing too. Just wanted to point that out so others don't think they're getting the same Brown sound on each unit. They should just refer to it as "a bit less gain" but I guess that wouldn't fit in the LED - haha

Well it also depends what you understand under "brown sound" I guess.  :lol:

For me it's a marshall pushed to it's limits. And gain wise the classic's brown channel doesn't do the trick, I always found the gain or distortion level compared to the mp-1 quite low.For me it's more a bluesy channel.

The one in the mp-2 is better but get's too muddy at higher gain settings.

I just like tight high gain settings, no mud for me  ;D

Maybe the Blues channel would've been a better name for it. You know they were riding on the coattails of EVH to call it a brown sound in the first place. Total marketing ploy

I use my Brown channel a LOT in the Classic. I have it friggin cranked, I'll admit. It breathes fire that way  >:D  The distortion channel doesn't get as much use, mostly for soooooper high gain stuff. My metal patch is usually the Brown sound (depends on the guitar) and some solos are Brown.

Solo Patch (like I said, it's pretty cranked)
OD1=9.5
OD2=9.5
Master = 7.0

I'm getting off topic with this, may have to move some of this thread to MP-1 Classic

Dante,

    My point was that the 3TM I have, seems to be pretty saturated with distortion in the former Clean distortion settings. Possibly, Trullmon set the trim pots too high in that one after he repaired it, or didn't back them off.
    According to Trullmon, whoever tried to install the 3TM mod, didn't do a very good job, and messed it up a bit. Plus, there were a boat load of caps that had to be replaced. If you guys remember from the old Forum before it went down, I wasn't impressed with the output of the 3TM at the time because it was very lame sounding, so I had checked the trim pots in there and they were dimed out. I don't know if he ever backed those off.
    That 3TM is a perfect example of the risks of buying from an unknown source on evil-bay.

Well here's sometimes I put on YT, just some screwing around with sounds. First up is the tube distortion and after 1:50 it's the clean tube. Not my best performance so...  :facepalm: it's all about the sound.

Yeah I feed my guitar input to both the MP-1 and MP-2 at the same time and I switch the outs with the rocktron patchmate.

Ahhh, a loop switcher, something like my GCX's. So how do you split the inputs to all of them?

Well I just split the signal that's coming out of the decimator first channel and go straight to both the input of the MP-1 and MP-2, I don't route the inputs through the rocktron, just the outputs.

...and those go out to the stacks?

     What about the effects, are those in the preamp effects loops, or parallel?

All my effects 'except the wah,decimator and G force are in de loops of the patchmate. The stereo out of the patchmate goes to the G force (so that's always in the chain) and from the G force it goes out in stereo to the heads.I use the G force this way because I use it for master volume and tuner mute (midi).As for effect I use the G force mostly for reverb only.
