Talk About Your Set Up. / Re: Woo-Hoo Just got a WTDI
« Last post by dbsfgyd1 on July 13, 2018, 03:58:24 PM »
Hey Armin,

Red LED instead of the blue one. Input on the right hand side just says "Input" on the top to the right of the Master.  Other side says "Bal. Out", "Grnd Lift", and "Unbal. Line Level Out".  You can see that pretty well on the picture I posted.  the only writing on the black part of the WTDI is the On/Off under the stomp-button.

I set my WTDI right on top of the amp next to my wireless received, so even if it had been that very bright blue light, it was behind me and wouldn't have been a problem.  No need to stomp it on and off, so I don't need to keep it under foot.  Sure was fun to hear Eden sound out of a Peavey amp though!  Almost as much fun as when I slaved my old GK amp to my RS400 and had Eden sound coming out of a GK.  Just love that Eden sound!

I ran the level and the master both way up.  The gain was up to about 5 o'clock without distorting and the Master was set at about 4 o'clock.   You have to remember this is going into a small Peavey 40-watt 112 combo that was turned up to about 2 o'clock (#7 on its dial), so it was probably putting out just about as much as it could.  I'm sure I wouldn't have to run it up so much on a more powerful amp.

My bass is a Passive Fender Jazz and on my WT500/800,  I run the gain up to 2 o'clock.  It doesn't really have a very hot signal, but it's never really been a problem.

I had mine for almost 5 years now, and use it with the FOH at church. Pretty much I run it flat, no enhance, no bass boost or mid shift. I do use the compression however, such that it is. I also use it with backline gear and set up the same way. Well, congrats on a great useful acquisition.

Hi Mike and welcome to the Garden!

How did you get the impression that the newer series has a quality problem?
I am more than happy with my WTP. Build like a tank, Eden sound and many details they payed attention to.
Rock on!
Hi and thanks for the welcome!  It was the Terra Nova series I was looking at.  My recent quest has been to get the sound in my head from more compact/lightweight gear.  I've been pretty successful with my Mesa D800 head and Barefaced cabs and was hoping to get some classic Eden tones from the TN.  Scott Devine's video review was encouraging but didn't progress any further when I got reports of poor quality - my local store manager told me they returned their TN stock due to excessively noisy operation.  So I went for a used WT550 Traveler supposedly in "mint condition" and, guess what: lovely classic tones accompanied by so much background noise that it's un-giggable  :-[  Anyway, should have it back repaired from my amp tech any day now  :D

Excellent - normally with a PCB you expect a repair bill close to the cost of a replacement - good luck and report back!

OK, so here's how it's going!  My amp tech narrowed the problem down to the pre-amp circuitry around the tube, though not the tube itself.  He has a trade account with Marshal UK, who offer a replacement pcb assembly for a reasonable £50, and I agreed that a pcb swap-out would be the best way to go.  It's looking like I'll have my amp back within a week, serviced and repaired (including replacement master volume pot) for around £120 - which seems pretty good to me  :)
