Two Rock Cardiff
« on: July 25, 2018, 12:37:15 PM »
Point to point wiring. What a little beast! No reverb but it does have an effects loop. Takes overdrive pedals very well. I need to get an Alnico Blue speaker to get more of that Voxlike chime but it's really nice as is. If you're looking for a Vox AC15 sound in a boutique amp, you can't go wrong with this one.

Fender Professional Strat bridge pup, volume backed off a bit, turn tone all the way down and come up from there to taste.

Into the Strymon DECO, Saturation at 2:00, Volume at 10:30, Blend at 10:30, Lag Time at 2:15, Wobble at 1:30, Type switch set on "Sum".

Into the Strymon Blue Sky Reverberator, Decay at 2:30, Mode switch on "Normal", Low and High Damp at 9:00, Type switch on "Room", Pre Delay set at 0, Mix at 12:00.

Into the Two Rock Cardiff, Volume at 12:00, Bass at 1:30, mids and highs at 1:00, Contour set at 12:00.

This is swampy af! Wish I played slide, would sound incredible with these settings. The reverb mix can be backed off a bit, might be too much at 12:00. Jump around on the pup selector. They all sound good, adjust tone accordingly. I should put the reverb in the effects loop. This is the best amp I've ever owned. I'm an official Two Rock fanatic.   :yay!:

I can't say enough good things about this amp. If you have a chance to play through one of these or any Two Rock, do it. It's a bargain at any price almost. I heart this amp! :banana:
