  • Need to beef up my JSX tone. Overdrive pedal maybe?

    I want a fuller sound out of my jsx head. I run it into a g-flex 2x12. It just doesn't sound saturated enough. Hard to describe I guess. Any thoughts? I run a pod xt live in the loop for all effects. Would I put an OD pedal into the front along with my wah?

    Your JSX doesn't sound saturated enough? Odd.

    If yours has a low input I'd plug into that then boost with a screamer or OCD type pedal. I use a bloody murder with my Ultra and it works great, and they are similar amps.
    I'm often amazed, but never surprised.

      A JSX not saturated enough? That's a new one. What are your settings?

        Weird that is not saturated enough. I definitely recommend KT77 power tubes in a JSX though (if not already)

          4x12 = Beef.
          I endorse Laura & Valve Queen tubes, you should too.Marshall, Gibson, Fender, Charvel/Jackson."I'm happy to pay my tech $40 bucks to take the Zap for me."One kick-butt deal with johnpace2 Dave Friedman of RACKSYSTEMS is a genius.After the Firebird X, i'm quite convinced Henry Juszkiewicz is crazy.Member of the JMP Hall of Fame.

            G-Flex 2x12 = as much beef as a 4x12, it's ported and brings plenty of bottom with it.


            I find it rather strange OP that you feel the JSX doesn't have enough saturation/beef, it's got gobs of it on the ultra channel IMHO. Maybe you should look at the XXX/3120 instead? Another option is perhaps higher gain rated preamp tubes, some (good) vendors can test and select some for you.

                Meh, heard plenty of 4x12's in my lifetime and still say the Genz-Benz does just as well, being it's an oversized, ported 2x12 to boot... But yea that's cool, your loss bro.

                  In a band the only thing that cuts are mids, low end wont do much.I just wish i was 20 years younger so i could throw around my 4x12 cabs like i used to.

                            Try setting all tone knobs on "6".
