You should be pleased, no really, you have made them resort to underhand tactics and they will fail. BUT if you do change your parts to lower 'quality' cheaper versions and it gets out, then you will suffer. At the moment we all know these comments are unfounded and will defend you when we see them, please don't change your build philosophy.  Washington DC Escorts

I swapped the 150k to 180k and it is an improvement, thank you. I also changed the resistor on the PAB relay from 10M to 6M6. (Mine was 10m not 22m) This also made a difference.
In an earlier reply someone mentioned changing the bias bypass cap(s?) from 5uf to 2.5uf. Just wondering which one? There appears to be four of them.
Thank you for this.

Input Volume 12-2 o'clock - Rock position
Treble 12 o'clock
Mids 3 o'clock
Bass 8 o'clock (Or off I find it very bass heavy)

Ratio 9 o'clock

Master Vol 10-11 o'clock
Presence 1 o'clock

Overdrive trim control about 9 ( as low as you can go)

C-lator Drive 2
Out - (this is now your master volume)
I use an ES-335 and an Attenuator so I can push the C-lator Out up. Remember to use your ears and have fun.

Hey guys, I just got my new Overtone Special FM 50 watt with built in / added C lator
I am struggling to get any good tones out of this amp.
It has all the mods Nik recommended to get those smooth fat horn tones ala Robben Ford, but........
I can't coax that out of my amp. Either to much distortion, to thin, not enough sustain etc.....
I am using the overdrive section as I am not trying to get clean tones.
I have only had it 2 days and I am very discouraged.
I am a veteran player, more years than I like to think about, So tube amps, I am very familiar with.
Can any one help me on settings?Huh?Huh?

Footswitch built... And working fine at the 1st time : no adverse noise, no clicks.   Smiley

I just have to design and engrave a top plate, though.

It controls : Overdrive / PAB / Reverb / FX Loop.

Additional feature of the Serial Tone Killer :

Assuming you want to use up to 4 stompboxes in the FX Loop and want to put it on the top of the amp (well, at least, it's what I plan to do  Undecided), the integrated 4X 9VDC
supply can power those stompboxes directly  Wink :

Next step : expected end of the hum fight...  Wink

Wait and See !

Improvements finished...  Smiley

The amp sound from deep to rock in clean, subtle to armageddon in OD.  :Smiley

Next step = footswitch  Wink

And still the hum sprinkler transformer !  Angry

For the moment, I'm experimenting improvements on the tone-corrector and the PAB to make that amp sound deeper and less systematically "in your face".

Wait and See !

Is there a way to make the boost on the OTS fatter and less harsh?   It's too thin and pretty much worthless.

Yes. I think that I have found a way to do that : I'm experimenting it on my Serial Tone Killer amp now.
