Title: Klein-ulator with the DC-30 - anyone tried this?
Post by: frankandstephen on November 27, 2008, 04:28:28 PM
Hey all!

I was wondering if anyone has tried the Klein-ulator with the DC-30, or if anyone has used the effects loop.

If so, what's been your experience with both and I'd welcome any suggestions since I feel like I'm not taking advantage of this aspect of the amp.

Thanks so much!

Not yet, but stay tuned I will do in the next week or so. My Dc-30 is very new, not burned in yet as soon as I get my ears tuned to its natural sound I will start using pedals, Klein and FX etc.

I don't like the simple interrupt FX loop used in the Dizzy 30.  Generally an interrupt loop is only good for line level effects.  A buffered (preferably tube buffered, IMHO) effects loop (parallel is great too) is the way to go,   So, I would highly recommend using a buffer, like the Klein-ulator in the loop to make up for the lack of onboard buffer.

I'm thinking about using this on my Plexi

I had a VHT Valvulator lying about so I tried it and it works really well.

I've just got a 'Wet Box' from Gigrig- which is a buffered device that enables you to progressively add your delays/reverb via a volume pedal.  It essentially turns the serial interrupt on the DC30 & Overtone etc into a parallel interface.  The great thing is that you can leave your delay/reverb on and control the wetness/dryness from a pedal.  The other cool thing is that as it's parallel, it doesn't eat you tone- as many simple interrupt boxes do...

Not had chance to try my K* with the DC-30. I'm leaning to the opinion that the DC is such a nice raw amp on its own, that I don't think I'll want anything in the loop(s). Might be worth making the effort to try it though when I get time.

Something everyone keeps saying about parallel effext not messing with your tone, maybe they don't as much as serial, but say if you've got an FX loop that really badly sucks tone and you mix it 50%wet, then you'll get a 50% tone suck! I know you can set the wet sound to over the top and then just blend a little of it back, but it will still take something away.

Like that Wet box idea, and the Remote Loopy 2, very innovative company GigRiG. I reall want a Humdinger with A/B/Y amp switching, that would be nice.
