    I recently had the chance to get a Haze 15 pretty cheap, and thought, why not.

    While the clean channel sounds quite good stock, the gain channel just didn't do it for me.
    Since its architecture is 2203/2204-ish, I modded it that way, but with some taming of the trebliness, and a switch that adds a reasonable amount of gain for a more hi gain-ish sound (not really by nowadays standards).
    Schem attached, sounds here:


    Some more infos on the recording on the soundcloud page.

    I could imagine, that these modifications could sound really good on any 2203/2204-ish amplifier. They're done quite simple and quickly, but to mee sound really good.

    pretty cool... left mine stock...was really surprised how thick it recorded. Kinda use the lil bugger for edge of OD driving the 6v6..into jensens for nice warm-thick leads. really like the amp.

    i like the added cold clipper
    have you messed around with a soldano-like 39k? recent build i put that cathode resistor on a 40k pot in series with a 6k8 resistor. all the way up is TIGHT. it's amazing how it goes from loose to tight with just the turn of a pot

    No, not recently. I remember experimenting with the Soldano circuit when I started understanding guitar amp circuits some 15 years ago or so. But I guess I wouldn't have understood the concept of a cold clipper back then. Should be worth a try :)
