    I've had it for a few years, I've experimented with it plenty. Without a hot plate or antennuator, is there ways to crank it, play with the pre-amp and controls to get it to saturate more like a plexi tone-wise? I can get it close when I lay off the tone and presence controls, I put the master volume between 7-10 and lower the preamp conitunually, between 5-7.5.

    Geez man, those settings are incredibly loud. I always get plexi like tones with dimmed master and pre at 3... and it hurts. :applause:
