[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C9mOtvA7VtE]Marshall DSL 15 H Modded to sound good. - YouTube[/ame]
It's was a combination of I got it real cheap and I'm a bit ****ed up.Sounds good. I also think it sounds better than the demo Marshall just put out of that new Slash amp. But I will say it takes a certain type to go out and buy a new amp that they don't like the sound of with the intention of modding it until it sounds good.
He has another thread, but:Can you list of mods you have done ?
What was the value before? 700-800 ohm range? Or was there no resistor?R40 to 2.7k got it right where I want it.
Still more gain than ya could ever use,but later in the sweep of the knob.
The stock is 1.8kWhat was the value before? 700-800 ohm range? Or was there no resistor?
How did it affect the uber compression at higher gain settings?
Asking, cause I'm wondering if I want to go back in myself. I have the R82 and 2 cap mods in, and also a 12AY7 in V1 and 5751 in the PI. I like where it is ALMOST completely. 0 to Noon is just perfect for most classic rock, even modern rock. Noon to 1:30, maybe even 2 oclock gets into heavy, but still useable gain. After 2 o'clock the uber compression starts in. At 3 o'clock its highly compressed, and then just continues more to full at 5 o o'clock.
Above, is at home volumes.
Through the Attenuator, with the MV rolled up, it's fairly similar. Useable gain, imho ends only a hair earlier.
And, the Clean/Green CH still gives nice JTM tones and blues crunch by itself, and gets into, imho, modded Plexi territory with a boost pedal.
Ergo my question on the effect of the v1B resistor going up to 2.7k, while running 12AX7s.
