My Current Set Up

Recommended Posts

My current set up is a JEM 7VWH plugged into a Positive Grid amplifier. I use the BIAS Elite package to get access to all the tonal range I’ll ever really need. Only downside is not very user friendly and I could be alot easier in some ways especially if your like me and it’s really new. All the different effects don’t really mean that much to me. For now whilst I’m learning I’m happy to just keep things pretty basic with tone. In my head I’d like a richer deeper distortion and less high pitch on high E strings.

Hey Shaan, awesome pal. I am in the same boat, only I simply use the Sparx Amp with the phone app. I am the same way though. So much content....so many choices....I just stick to the Basic tones, But I use my 50's Squire Tele mostly and I too would like a little lower pitch on my high E string, and the over-all sound itself.

It is great in many ways the amplifier like being able to jam and play to backing tracks through the amp. I’m going to have my guitar returned and strung so will play around with a hybrid string set up and go for more a John Petrucci string gauge and see if that works better. Currently I have super lights on my guitar which may account for the sharpness in tone lol😂. How are you getting on with the course?

Hey Shaan, those JEMs are sweet! If you haven't tried it yet, I would suggest you set up the "Guitar Match" function in your Bias FX. It's pretty straight-forward, and if you used the Les Paul it would give you some more "chunk" to the thin sound you are talking about. Or... you could add an EQ pedal to the front of your effects chain in Bias FX, and tweak the highs out of your signal that way. Or... for about $20, you could get a cheap Behringer EQ pedal that you could put between your guitar and your interface. That way, you wouldn't have to add an EQ pedal to all of your Bias FX patches.

Hey sneuhaus1Thank you for the advice there. Back when I was learning all the effects were way too expensive to buy so I never really got into that world until relatively recently. What I've found so far is it's been a really clunky experience using the software. I seem to get alot of feedback from the BIAS plugged into the main computer to activate so it's all been a bit messy on the tone front. I'm going to try that out above and give that a go. Unfortunately their customer service is like a merry go round lol and they don't get beginners new into the effects world which i have found frustrating with them. Hopefully they tighten that part up as the product itself has some fantastic potential. Maybe we might get a masterclass here on how to use BIAS. Thank you again for the advice and I look forward to playing around with that part and see what happens:)
