    My Low input is a lot quieter too, but I hardly ever use it anyway.

    Id be careful about getting this 'fix'. I seem to remember someone posting here that he got it and his amp was suddenly noisy, and that was done through an authorized Marshall repair shop.

    Personally, I don't care about this slight volume drop, since my loop is always on. :shrug:

    Yeah, Marshall JCM 800 100W reissue head is $3,999.99 here in Canada! :wow:
    SC20H is $1,799.99. BIG difference.

    And the cabs for the 100W heads cost way more too ($1,9999.99). With tax the 100W head + cab would set you back $6,779.98 where I live! :wow: :wow: :wow: :wow:

    That's way over my budget. SC20 plus 2x12 cab was an easy decision, especially since I don't play stadiums.

    Boy, loads of people buying these. I have the SC20H and 2x12 cab, I also have an attenuator (PS-2). Mine sounds great through the attenuator, if I can play at around 95dB. So most of the time I use mine without the PS-2 (on the 20W mode). I find the SC20 benefits from a volume pot in the loop, just so that you can open the MV up a little higher, maybe around 3, as it livens up the tone. Alternatively, if you can play with the MV at 1 or higher, you probably don't need the extra pot. Also, if you need to have the MV very low, crank up the presence and it will sound better at low volumes.

    I sound dense at most volumes too. Usually without a guitar in my hands though....

    Don't mean to make you feel stupid, but everyone knows it's for holding your cable while switching guitars. :facepalm:

    Haven't played my SC in awhile. Mess'n round changing preamp tubes in my Lynch Mob module. Forgot how many textures this amp gets when rolling off guitar volume/tone knobs. Especially with it riding a EVH 412. :agreed:

    Missed the lil engine that could.:D:eddie:

    Pretty bad ass. Adds some low end. Shifts the mids a bit lower it feels like. Sounds like a bit more gain, but that might just be different frequencies that make it sound like that.
