JTM 45? Not necessarily, but much better!

02.01.2017
First name:
I would describe myself as extremely demanding in terms of sound and sometimes also think of hearing the grass grow.
Since I have found amps, whose own tense I like, I do not really need and no more pedal pedals.
Their sound is fundamentally as "artificial" and also as less complex than the torn of a good amp.
Over the last 2 years, I have always tried again and again and sent me the one or the other pedal (thanks to Thomann for Moneyback!), But always with the same result: the Amp sounded without Zerr pedal much "more natural "And" better "for me!
(Exception: pure boosters, which usually do not color, but simply raise the signal in the ideal case simply linearly and thus "tickle" the preamplifier)

After a year of "pedal abstinence", I once again struck the oats and I had a couple of copies to come for Christmas: next to the "Bogner La Grange", the "Wampler Plexi Drive" and the "Friedman BE1 .

Getestat I have a Victory V40 and a Linnemann LA v6 with the following conclusion:
The Caliber makes out of my amps but no JTM 45, but still gets the highest rating from me!
Why ?
It integrates itself very naturally and homogeneously into the basic sound of the amp, before it hangs!
I do not notice an annoying "midnase" and also no unnatural stresses of frequencies that "falsify" the amp sound.
The amp can either be clean or crunch easily: the result sounds truly amazing for me, "amps" and not as artificial, flat, ninety, or one-dimensional as most other pedals.

If you want to get the basic sound of your amp and a natural sounding "additional gain" is looking for, this should definitely try!
However, if you want to beat your non-Marshall amp in the direction of "Marshall-Sound", you might be looking for something else.

Marshall in a box - real!

Frank646, 15.11.2017
I've recently taken the luxury of building a real "high-end" pedalboard - SchmidtArray, GigRig2, Strymon etc ... The board should be built to run in front of virtually any clean amp (or two). To do that, you need two equalizers that simulate the "high gain" channel and the "low gain" channel of a three-channel amp. I love the Marshall sound, so I looked at the Caliber 45 as a "low gain" Marshall plexi (the high-gain is an Angry Charlie v3 - great too!).

Plugged in, everything set to 12 o'clock, once struck - wide smile on the face - everything done right. The thing stays! My cleaner amp is a twin reverb and with that the Caliber fits perfectly. It really comes out this earthy crunch sound you like about Marshall Amps. The pedal reacts neatly to the volume control of the guitar. It has punch and clarity without end and does not sound overly compressed. It hardly rustles. Also, a booster in the front it takes great (eg Buffalo Td-X or an Archer). The gain range goes from practically clean to a decent "classic rock" crunch, but definitely not high-gain.

The pedal is processed so that it would probably take the fall from the 16th floor effortlessly. It is relatively heavy and just looks awesome.

This pedal is absolute top. I can recommend it without hesitation.
