I have a Mode Four from back when they first came out and though its not well loved by many, i still enjoy playing it from time to time and actually like the amp for something different. But recently, i noticed the volume doesnt seem as deafening as I quite remember it. Now, one could chalk this up to me becoming possibly deaf after years of abuse and thats possible! But driving it through 2 MF400B Cabinets, i had it all the way up to 10 and even engaged the Solo boost which is supposed to add about 7-10dB and while it was loud, it wasnt THAT loud. To compare things against it, i played my JCM2000 DSL50 , run into a 1960A Cab and it was a LOT louder at about 5-6. Granted, tube RMS is different than solidstate RMS, but i never remember it being quieter than either my 50 watt JCM2000 or JCM900 SLX. Solidstate amps are obviously a lot harder to service I know, but what would be doing this? Or, is it a case of Ive been wrong all these years and THOUGHT it was louder than it was? Anyone familiar with these and have any comparisons against a tube Marshall?
