voodoo modded marshall jmp
Bridge hot rail pickup on an EJ Strat. What a great Classic rock tone!
Rolled the volume back slightly and ran neck and middle stock EJ pickups. This clip shows some great rhythm 'single coil dirt'.
EJ Strat, bridge hot rail, Crisp clear Marshall bark.
Medium gain EJ Strat bridge hot rail clip. Just a few chords, listen to the amp bark! The highest gain profiles in this set are two lights over the middle. This is not a super high gain shred amp mod, more a toneful classic rock marshall.
Voodoo Amps modded JMP Marshall
This amp is an all tube JMP Marshall, modified by the wizards at Voodoo Amps. Voodoo has modded amplifiers for everyone from Rock Stars like Aerosmith and Def Leppard to regular folks.
Cabinet used was my favorite - 1972 Marshall bottom 4x12 cab, stock, Celestion Greenbacks with Pulsonic cones.
This amp has three types of profiles - Direct, Regular and Merged. The letter before the number tells you what they are - D 01 is Direct 01, for example. Some profiles have a V - this means I used a Variac on the amp. They are 'regular' profiles.
Direct is taken off a line out from the amp. It's best for power amps feeding speaker cabs.
Regular are good old fashioned profiles taken the normal way.
Merged are a combination, in Kemper's software, to blend Direct and Regular profiles so you get the best of both worlds.
I provide all three so you can choose what sounds best for your application - Regular and Merged sound slightly different. I include the Direct profiles too as they can be used to make new merged profiles if there are ever any changes made to the Kemper software and firmware.
There are only five Direct profiles, that cover each amp setting. So D01 is the same as R 01 to R 03, D 04 is R 04 to R 06, etc. R 01 is a Ribbon mic, R 02 is SM57, R 03 is both put together. Cycle repeats itself with different amp settings (and Direct Profile) so R 04 is Ribbon, 05 is SM57, 06 is blended, etc.
Profiles marked with V - 07 to 15 - are with the amp Variac'd. This means a transformer was used to cut voltage to the amp down to 90 volts. This is one way EVH attained his 'brown' sound. Also the M 07 to 15 have the same variac being used, Direct 7, 10 and 13 also.
So you get 5 direct profiles, 15 Regular, and 15 Merged of a Rare modified Marshall.
