I’ve clipped the bright cap in a 2203 and my 72 Trem; didn’t care for it as it neutered the amp somewhat…immediately soldered them back in.
Right now im playing it through a closed back 212 with only one 16ohm greenback on the top slot, with no grill cloth. The other speaker is coming next monday. Bottom slot is open. I guess once in place, the grill cloth will block some of the high frequencies..Like I said in an earlier post, you should look at the choice of speaker(s) first. It sounds like your speaker choice is on the treble side for that amp.
Hmmm... yea, but I would think that this arrangement still shouldn't be causing your perceived overly bright sounding amp. It's really hard to say just what's going on without being there to hear it or having an accurate recording that represents the actual sound so that we can properly make recommendations without just taking logical stabs at it.
Thank you for the link. I was thinking of doing the Rich II mod PPIMV. I did put a type 3 mv in the beginning and worked fine , although after a while it didnt...Did you try turning the normal channel volume all the way down?
Check this out if you haven’t already.
Remember Fletcher-Munson: when sound gets louder it’s perceived as having more bass and treble. That could be a big reason why you’re hearing what you’re hearing.
Thats what i hope it is. Also im standing right in front of the speaker( at a distance, head level). If i stand in front of it with the speaker pointing at my belly then the sound is very bassy...but yeah i will first have to test the cab before i wrap it in tolex and add the grill clothNo grill cloth will make a speaker sound very bright.
Agree. Plus with no grill cloth the speaker will definitely sound a bit brighter. Next monday ill get the second speaker which is gonna go in the bottom of my 2x12. Im sure that will change the sound for the better. Fuller and rounder.Almost any amp or speaker will sound bright if it’s pointed straight at your head.
I will test the cab more when i get the other speaker. I guess what im looking for is that classic AC/DC tone through greenbacks. I dont know the science behind closed vs open cab, my guess was that closed back would give me a bassier sound....Especially if it's a closed back cab... should be punchier and more defined/less flubby.
