    Hi all.

    I once won a little motorbike in a raffle and traded it for a Marshall 6100 head and a 4x12 cabinet. Little did I know what I was doing, so the amp was not played much over the last... 13 years, I guess, because those speakers did not sound well.

    Last week I bought two Celestion V Type and built a cab for them, so it came back to life.

    I never was -and will ever be- "gearhead" so little do I care abour logos, trademarks and all that stuff. That being said, I'd like some insight about how this tone knobs work, since I'm finding myself a little puzzled.

    I know valve amps work different, but I'm watching how the mid control raises the lows, how the master volume increases the gain and how the clean channel seems to not stand up to it's somehow glorious, fame and this all makes me wonder what's going on...

    (Before every reply: I do know how to use the search button!)

    I believe Anitoli is the resident 6100 expert here.

    E aĆ­, cara.

    Thanks all. I'll be shooting a video soon, once check all of the 6100 thread.
    Valves have been replaced so long that I don't remember which are they. One blew out and a crappy one has been swaped in.
    I'm reading here that caps must be renewed after some time... and I'm getting used to the way tone pots work, which is pretty puzzling at first.

    A few days ago I found Ch. 2 B the best one, but yesterday I couldn't get that tone back, but I did enjoy Ch. 2 C.

    So weird.
