I’m really pleased with this one. As saved, it’s right on the edge of breakup, such that you can play soft and clean or dig into it for throaty snarl. Tweaking the Gain up keeps it crunch; rolling it back brings out the midrangey OD. I loaded it with some useful FX: compressor, Tube Screamer, DS One, Phaser, and post-stack Rotary Speaker, Chorus, Delay, Reverb. All are off by default, except the compressor. It’s great with or w/o the compressor, which I was pleased with.

This is a highly-modified Marshall Class 5 combo – essentially all of the internet’d mods, plus a few more my guy came up with. Used here as a head, driving a 12″ greenback in a custom close-back cab. I just replaced the tubes: TungSol 12AX7’s for the pre and a JJ EL844 in the power section. The 844 is a 84 with 25% *less* headroom, so mo’ crunchitude earlier. There is no Master Volume on this amp, so I profiled with the Volume and tone stack dimed. (I tried lower settings, but ultimately I didn’t find them necessary.)
