    Testing Archon through Stealth Cab

    I tried it through my Bogner OS Cab, and believe it or not it didn't sound good .
    It was very muddy and boomy, went back to stealth cab and the midrange opened up and it was much clearer. Very strange....but on a different note, my effects loop is still horrible lol.
    I love the amp though, just not the effects loop

    NOTE: ALL KNOBS ARE AT NOON

    Nice MJ guitar, haven't seen one of those since I previously saw one in Joel Kosche's hands. Thanks for posting, I love my Archon as well and really enjoy the sound I get out of my stealth cabs. I had the mod done to mine for the EFX loop but since have never used it, guess that's one way to not be disappointed in it. You should have kept that Switchfoot song rolling at the end!

    I did the mod to the effects loop also, and it was no change at all. Doesn't matter the pedals i use either.
    Yeah I love my MJ's, I am a big collective soul fan, (even though Joel doesn't play with them anymore).

    That's unfortunate with the efx loop "mod" not working out. I run all my effects up front anyways, it works for me.

    How many do you have, do you have a picture with all of them in it? I'm a really big Collective Soul fan too. Ross is one of a handful of artists that played PRS back when I really first started getting into music that got me into PRS. I'd love an adjustable hardtail Metal pinstripe painted PRS, it's on my PS wish list. Last time I saw CS play it was a handful of years back and Joel rocked that Mirage like a pro.

    Cool demo. Interestingly, I have one of the earliest versions, and I don't have a problem with the loop. I only run a TC flashback in it though. I couldn't possibly run a delay up front on the gain channel. Nothing but mud that way. That Diezel underneath is one cool amp also...

    I have tried all pedal combinations in effects loop, taken some out and rearranged them.

    Great clip!

    D-Moll + Archon + A/B/Y box + Stereo cab..... do it

    I ran my Archon with my Herbert and created a sound I'll never forget!

    Yeah... I must have just been lucky. Odd though since from what I've read here, it's an inherent design issue, so I don't know why I wouldn't have the problem also.
