Re: Metal Settings for DC-5 Head (TAKE TWO)

I also have a DC-5b head. Neither flub nor fizz comes to mind with my sound. My cab may have something to do with it. I'm using a 2x12 half back with c90's. You could try removing the screamer. Personally my ears associate fizz with diode clipping. I did use a TS9 for a while but with the gain all ...

Re: Metal Settings for DC-5 Head (TAKE TWO)

Don't know how much this will help because I use a DC5 combo with the stock speaker, no boost pedal although I had a TS9 style pedal on the board. My "not in storage cab" is a 2x12 closed back with Celestion Greenbacks. I haven't tried it with the DC5, but now you have me curious on what it would s...

Metal Settings for DC-5 Head (TAKE TWO)

Hey! I've asked this same question before, but unfortunately did not get much help. Sorry guys :oops: I've owned my DC-5B head for about 4 years now, and I'm still experiencing trouble dialing in the tone I hear in my head. (It gets REALLY close, and I know that this head is capable of delivering me...

Re: The Official DC Club

I've had my DC-5B Head since 2015. I've had the chance to compare it with some other Boogies: Mark IIIs, Mark IVs, Rectos, etc. and my amp just SLAYED them all! It's a shame these amps are severely underappreciated.

Although it sounds, good, I'm still having some difficulties dialing in a good Metallica-esque tone. Anyone have settings that may suit my needs? I usually use a Fender MIM Strat with a...
