Mike Morin amps eat up, chew and spit out any other high gain amp. Want to buy a Bogner? Don't need them anymore. Morin's amps make everything else sound whimpy.

I find it a bit confusing to use, since I could only use it to bring the signal down to line level. Maybe it was defective when I bought it used. I don't think it hurt the amp, but an amp might have hurt it, since it didn't seem to work like a Power Brake should, directly into a speaker cab. It is supposed to work either way. Then again, I don't know how it could be damaged if it works as a line out. :?


Possibly something is wrong with it, but it should (when normally working) work into a speaker and give several levels of attenuation (-6,-12,-18dB). (If 18dB down isn't enough it's possible to knock it down further relatively easily by using an "L-Pad" made up of a couple of resistors of adequate wattage also.)

The handbook(instructions) for the SE100 is available from marshall for download by the way (among other instructions for older products) :

Thanks, Dai, I've been wondering where I could find some info on the SE100. It does work without the power supply, though, so I think that is only necessary when you want to use the speaker emulator.

yeah, that's correct. The attenuator and load portion doesn't need any power to work. The power source just needs to be an AC supply of adequate rating. I made one for mine (bought used some time ago and it came w/out one) out of a power transformer and an alu box.

I need some opinions on a high gain head for modern 7-string low end
I'm not really into that anymore, but I have a project that I need this tone for

I used to have a mesa triaxis, rectifier etc...
I got rid of it all and I use a mojave peacemaker now, I prefer a vintage vibe these days
but for this one project, I can't use a vintage tone and I desperately don't want to go back to mesa just cause everyone uses a mesa
what else sounds cool for super low stuff
looking into peavy 5150 (carcass got a cool sound out of them in the 90s)
rivera ( I liked saigon kick's tone in the 90s)
any other non dual rectifier sounding options?

thanks

You can just make it out in the backline....

Power conditioner>Digitech 2101 Studio>Peavey 60/60 Classic....The last live set up I was using when gigging.

I am also very fond of my Peavey Ultra 60....I retired it from live work out of fear of road/van damage.

Now I sit at home and play unplugged as my walls are thin. I need to call up some buddies and jam. :lol:

Yeah,

the clips I heard of the Mojave are insane, but as yet out of my price range. When my JVM was stolen I replaced it with a Splawn Quickrod; vintage plexi vibe with plenty of gain and compression. One cool thing about it is it comes with a lifetime warranty, and you can call the factory and get the builders on the phone. They will sit on the phone and answer silly questions and all.

I played some VHTs in my day, killer, killer amps, but they are so dry and tight sounding, I wouldn't dare play one in front of an audience! :jam:

Either of these will do 7 string stuff great. My friend used some 7-string on an album, and told me he cranked the mids to get a "normal" sound out of the low down tuning.
