Re: DC Mods that are easy to do!

If you can't get the amp past 1.5 your not even using it.. Thank you for the constructive response but I was looking for something a little different. I am not joking when I say having the master output at 1.5 is like I'm at a show standing right next to the speakers. I've always thought that is ju...

Re: DC-5, Will I ever be able to stop tweaking and play?!...

To get more open sound out of my DC3 lower the "Preamp"gain and crank the "Master output" and control the over all volume with the "Channel Master".Doing this gives my amp a much more open rich powerful sound.It actually gets quite heavy.Try it,you may be suprised.

Re: JJ EL844 tubes in a DC-3

The only odd thing I read in your post was that you mention how the power and standby switches get hot after leaving the amp on for 30 minutes. Mine doesn't do this, as the switches are always cold (I have the metal kind). I'm not saying there's anything wrong with your amp, it just caught my atten...

the "Studio Caliber" is the correct name of the DC2.When I had mine I used a Peavey Scorpion speaker,mainly becouse I cranked the amp to keep up with a very loud band.I remember it sounded fantastic with that amp.

Re: PSA- DC-3 bias mod

Stock the amp runs any tube WAY to hot. This gets them down into reasonable levels. Tone still sounds great. I cant imagine any tube(regardless of its rating) lasting more than a few months stock.They may not blow up but the life is being sucked out of them quickly. Bob But if I have a cooling fan ...

Re: Why can't I make my Triaxis work with the DC3 power amp?

make sure your using the main out of the triaxis.Also you want to turn the GEQ to off.If it'sa older DC you may need to clean the jacks up.Also modding the fx loop would be easy to do.My loop works well with my modelers.(serial mod)
