How do you get more bottom end out of your 20w Studios?

Use a DOD 250 (Reissue) in front as boost (level up, gain min). It adds a lot of bass. I wasn't aware of this till I tried it. You can get lots of thump, even at relatively low volume. It doesn't matter that it cuts some of the highs, since the SC20 is pretty bright anyway. If you turn up the gain on the pedal, this effect disappears.

OR

Just crank up the volume with a good 2x12 or 4x12.

I get as much useable bottom with my Lynch module. No pedals.

To be serious? No 20 watter has thump. To my ears. Reamped? Yep.

Yes, I also have a PS2, and you can get enough thump to rattle your house to bits.

The 20 watters have no less relative low end compared to a 100 watt head. Marshalls aren’t made for chug chug low tuned music to begin with. Just get an EQ pedal and you should be fine.

Nothing worse than low volume thump:mad:

And a bandaid EQ pedal...:facepalm::D


I hate chug'n but I do love a big iron thump!:eddie:,

Between my Thor and SC? Daem. Like a hand job to oral opera.:drool:

I don't own either (yet), but if I wanted more bottom end thump I'd install some JJ E34L power tubes. Makes any Marshall sound bigger.

Yeah there’s a big difference between the punch in the nuts from a 100 watter through a 4x12 and the chunky chuggy low end of a modern amp.

Hehee. Well for me I'm an old rocker. Not modern player.

Yeah that ball clacking power changes a player. For good or bad.

Still have love for my mini 800 ripper. And there are ways to turn it into a big thumper also. Best of both worlds. Fun Fucking amp either way. It is a bitey amp though. I totally understand OP's question.

I would add speaker choice matters with a upper Kerrangy Marshall. A big tuning option for bottom.:agreed:
