He's got an RM4 and RT2/50 along with an RM100, and I'm running an RM100 with Clean, SL+, Recto, Blackface, Salvation JJ Dirt, JF Mark X, Salvation Legend, Salvation Dreadplate mods available. I think he's mainly using the 6505, Blackface and Ultra?

Keen to hear your thoughts after some time with it. I might go to the Synergy at some point.

Excellent to hear from you. I have the RM4 and RT2/50 with six modules, my favourite being a plexi module given the Jose mod by Ryan.

Is your mate with the RM4 on the forum? I have a question to ask him about the rig.

p.s. I bought Oleg's rig. Does weigh a ton but sounds good.

Nah, he's not on here. You on facebook? I can put you in touch.

Wicked. Love the idea of these. A VH4 is a bucket list amp for me, but even then I doubt it'd be all that usable. A module could be the way to go.

I was pleasantly surprised, since it's a stock module. While I like the JJ Dirt a bit better for the stuff I'm doing, the SL+ could certainly find it's way on a bunch of tracks. Probably my favourite of the stock modules.

Yep, I have one, it's my main amp. A few quirks, but solid. It's generally worth replacing the fan (it's quite noisy), the effects loop (both parallel and series) is line level, so make sure anything you plan to shove in there is capable. I recommend the 'Fog Lifter' or 'MDA' mod board to the presence/depth circuit as well. I currently use my Boss ES-8 to do the midi switching and it works sweet. It's also big and heavy, haha.

I should probably start lurking Grailtone forum haha.

So far the only Synergy module I'm interested in besides the Diezel is the Morgan AC. The Metroplex one sounded quite good but doubt I need it since I have a 2203.

I hope there'll be more coming soon but considering how long it took to get the first batch of products out I'm not holding my breath...

Sounds kinda cool :)

This one sounds pretty close to the actual amp. However the Plexi is loaded/reamped through a Fryette Power Station and the Synergy power amp was designed by Fryette too. That might contribute to some of the similarity too.

Definitely looks homebrewable, would be cool if they sold DIY kits where you could put your own circuit board in :)

Yeah, the circuits aren't particularly complicated. The modders (Salvation / Jaded Faith etc) tended to goop their stuff which sucks when you want to go in and change something. Synergy aren't gonna do DIY though, they've said that already. They're only roping in boutique builders. There's a bit of info on taking the old stock randall modules and tweaking them on the forums, but it's kind of been secretive in the past because the modding companies wanted to keep their business I guess.

I wonder if the HBE module has as much gain as the actual amp. I tried the Friedman Runt 50 on my last US trip and it didn't have a lot of gain compared to a BE100, he probably did that on purpose since it's cheaper.

Someone needs to make an open source one, would be so cool! You could make decent money selling the kits...
