    Best sound I've heard from this amp so far. Makes me want to get one and do those mods.

    Awesome playing, too. :)

    Sounds great. Does this mod affect the green channel in any way?

    No,the mod leaves the green channel alone.

    That's more like it! IMO, the 15's should come that way from the factory and with a loop. Nice job!

    I'm thinking I'm gonna try and lower the gain a bit more and add a choke.
    I'm thinking(correct me if I'm wrong) a choke might help with the over compression at higher gain settings.

    What volume level are you running?
    A choke may only help at higher volume settings...

    I dont think the choke will help at all with the compression at higher gain settings.

    If your happy with the sound at 10 oclock on the gain knob, why do you need to change it ?? Is it just so you can dime the gain and still have a sound you like ??
