    That is one heck of a fine amp. Takes a little getting used to as far as the gain and its response to input level is concerned, but that 'roar with clarity' is amazing. The low sensitivity input is a bit... dull unless I hit it with a clean boost or a bit of tubescreamer, but I'm also on single coils. As many have stated the master volume needs to be up to around 4 before you get the rich tone, but when you do... oh my. :drool:

    So what's the rest of the setup? Are u playing attenuated through 20 watt mode or unnattenuated in 5 watt mode? Or 20 watt mode unnattenuated and deaf?
    They all sound kinda different but good imo

    Haven't hooked up the attenuator yet, been alternating between the 5/20W modes, though the 20 is better the 5W mode works pretty well, too. Rest of the setup has basically just been my #1 Tele, GP-8 as a bit of a clean boost and/or to add some delay. Running it through a Greenback and a Creamback. Tried a TS in front, but I'm not convinced by that move, honestly. Deaf? No, still working on that. My ears should have clapped out years ago, but I still have above average hearing especially in the high range. I'd be very glad if I could shave a few kHz from the top and not hear the freaking sonic animal repellent devices or very cheap dog whistles. :shrug:

    Once you hook the attenuator up try the 20 watt mode low input, master on 7 or 8, low gain, like 2 to 3, very little treble or presence. I love it there, dunno why, but I have a frowny face eq setup in the fx loop.

    I think this would be doable without an attenuator... at least to test it. What kind of pickups are you on?

    P90s, kinda harsh, but the neck pup is sublime to my ears.

    Hmmm... I compensated a little for my pickups by adding some gain, but it hardly blows me away. I could have a conversation in the same room with the settings you describe. Move the guitar to the high input and it peels the enamel off your teeth....

    I’ve been all over the place regarding 5/20 modes and attenuation. I’ve kind of settled in on the 5 watt mode attenuated,… for the time being.

    I’m an at home player and for now I’m enjoying the bit of compression in the 5 watt mode cranked and attenuated. I had been on the 20 watt setting attenuated for the longest.

    The first few months owning this amp I didn’t have an attenuator, and getting the master up to 4 or beyond was impractical for at home volumes.

    I bought a Weber Minimass a few months after I bought the amp, it allows me to play with the mv anywhere I like.

    Without it, being an at home player, I wouldn’t be able to drive the power tubes and get those great tones in the power amp section.

    Right now with humbuckers, I’m running the master anywhere from 5 to 8,… with the preamp from 4 to 6 or so. With single coils everything is bumped up a bit.
