Overdrive is like peanut butter. Some like it crunchy, some like it creamy.

I started at 12 o'clock and went to 9 o'clock with the Treble, Mid, Bass
I adjusted back and forth with the Volume and Master
When I adjusted the Drive or Level, I could not tell ANY change in tone.
I'm a little confused what you're saying here....

Quote
My first impressions:
1) very "middy"
2) Very tight
3) Extremely clean
4) NO OVERDRIVE
Again...not sure what you mean by no overdrive


Hmmm....not sure how else to explain it. Those were my settings, and that's how it sounded.....  Embarrassed

My switches on the back were not on pedal. After doing that, the Overdrive worked.

It sounds alot better now, thanks!

I still need to make adjustments and break it in, but so far so good!


One question:

My back panel does not have the OD adjustment so how do I tell which internal trimmer to adjust?

The OD trim is the knob on the middle of the rear panel, right next to the standby switch it may not be marked if it is an older rear panel, and in your pics it is def turned all the way down.

No....I was a little thrown, I had made the crazy assumption that you had read the manual and knew about the switches in the back. Wink

Again...the manual will help out a great deal with these things.

Check it out!

Ah yes of course, a manual....I knew I forgot something... Grin

Maybe I shouldn't have raced home after working 12 hours midnight shift to fire up a new amp!

It's all good though, thanks for the help!

It's all good. The late hour was my problem too, I was sort of in a hurry when I was writing the other post  (putting most my effort in the wiring question) and didn't give it much thought. Then when I saw Gregg had answered while I was typing, I just forgot about it.
