I just ordered a Mutron Microtron IV from Sam Ash. I’m so glad I read this page before
ending up ordering another rinky dink filter that I wouldn’t be happy with. I had an EH
Mini Qtron after a Digitech FX 25. I honestly was able to play the FX25 better at half the price than the Mini Qtron . If anyone would care to share their MicroTron IV settings,
I’m sure it would get me in the Ballpark and save me some time and frustration from fiddling. :thewave: :rockon:
Thanks guys!

I have a mutron iii+ and a micro IV. To me, the Micro is overrated. I can't get as good of a Jerry Mutron sound out of the micro. The iii+ is spot on. I have had good luck using a Boss EQ before the micro to help dial it in, or by using it in my Boostron FX Loop. The old Q-trons are right up there with the HAZ iii+. Side note... I wasn't too impressed with the Phasor III (modern take on an old Mutron classic.)

I know the OBEL system is popular in combination with the envelope filters.
I really have no desire to put one on my PRS Standard. I do have a Steel Guitar Black box and am hoping that will trigger the EF fine.The pickups are rated at 8.5 k and 15k.
I’ll find out. While going through some lean times I slowly removed all of my effects pedals from the signal chain as cords wore out. I’ve found out that 9 times out of 10 I’m pretty happy with my tone plugged straight into the Twin. :musicsmile:

If you don't want an OBEL and worried about keeping a continual level to your EF, try this:
1) leave your guitar volume on 10, always
2) put the EF first in chain (or after SGBB)
3) put a volume pedal at the end of your board

That’s what I do. It works just fine and enables me to go wireless.

The micro-tron will come with suggested Jerry settings. Adjust the Gain (right most) control to match your guitar output, and you will be darn close out of the box.

Based on my experience with my own I agree 100% with Chocol8's sagacious counsel. I'd add only do not be afraid to experiment yourself with every possible setting on the unit. You may find that you can get closer to Jerry than the stock suggestion gets you and/or you may find your own "voice" that for whatever reason(s) you determine works better "for you" than Jerry's does for you.

Brownie points for the use of "sagacious". Not often seen on internet forums. We are not only everywhere, we are educated too!

hehehehe

Make sure to open the microtron and mess with the trim pot on the right. It’ll definitely give you some different options. Also, YMMV, but I moved the jumper pin from Trutron to Mutron. That makes the gain knob also act like a volume knob, so turning the gain down means turning the level up, and vice versa. But with the trim pot and the jumper, you have a lot of options at your disposal.
