Just wondering what it is about the amp you don't like?

Meh, it's not terrible. I do want a nice tube clean channell. Also, I find for leads, the overdrive is a little to ...I don't really know how to put screechy?

It has a very distinct Marshall tone and for the money I thought mine was a great buy.


What guitar and pickups are you using and what general kind of settings?

I'm using and OLP Petrucci with a humbucker from hell and a tone zone. I Have the bass and contour around 6, and the treble at 5. I usually use the FDD just for the volume boost, but prefer the sound without it.

It's not a terrible amp, but it's my only one, and since we're recording soon, I want a good one. I also can't use it for recording on account of that fan drone :( .

Also, would a tube amp (Valveking 112 50 watt) be louder? Togive you and Idea, we practise with the MG cranked. The overdrive is plenty loud, but I can hardly get enough clean volume.

Thanks for the insight bud.
