    Thanks Solar! Thant song is something that I can still remember from about 93 ,so you think that I could just play it without thinking, but I still need to remember to count them out to keep the sequence correct:cheers:

    I want a strat again! The Creamback takes single coils really well you should try the Fryette pedal its pretty sweet it retains the amps tones but adds fatness to the red with more dynamics if you want . AC powered EF86 tube powered.

    Man I can say that love Em or hate em the 40c can produce some very good tones. Not to stray to far from this thread but when I first got my 2104 in the late 70’s they:cheers: got bashed by the purists back then ( oh it has a master volume) I thought it was the best amp ever I wished I had never sold it

    I tend to have the pedal gain (not that it's really a gain knob) all the way down or no more than 10-11 o'clock. Adds more character to the distortion. Level at unity volume. Tone to taste. I roll off some of the highs. More importantly I have the amp on the green clean channel just at the edge of breakup, probably just before 3 o'clock on the gain. The pedal then pushes the amp into a tone I like that doesn't sound like a pedal.

    This one has the Hot Plexi going into my CTO-1 pedal. I don't usually stack pedals...ever cause it's more than often too much in front of my OR15.

    So I started my day off with the the DSL40C cutting in and out volume wise and then went silent other than the high volume hiss.LOL

    turned out to be my instrument cable. It's firing off terrifically now! No wonder it's been feeling limp lately. It ain't now! Another cable and all is well.

    It doesn't have a clean channel. I have the amp gain at light break up. I was surprised that it didn't turn to mush with both. Also I don't add much pedal gain.
