I'm thinking that it might be totally jiggered, or it might work with phantom power (rather than using the battery). Anyone know whether I'm barking up the wrong tree and, if I'm not, whether the cable on the...

Re: UAD - Fender '55 Tweed Deluxe Plug-In

I still struggle to get a really clean warm tone from the UA models. What would you use, for example, for a jazz tone?

Re: UAD - Fender '55 Tweed Deluxe Plug-In

Haven't had a chance to try it yet - has anyone managed to get a good really clean tone out of it? That is where I think modelled amps struggle IMHO - it seems like there is always a bit crunch somewhere...
