Post by Whitedevilone » Sat Aug 17, 2013 7:54 am

I'm sure this has been addressed somewhere but here it goes.I have a 94 2 Channel Duel.Love,love,love it.I'm just looking for a clear and simple solo boost the really makes a difference.I play thrash metal and my solos just don't cut through live.

Without having it built into the amp, hard to provide an answer on that unless you add a switchable attenuator to the guitar signal (do not think that exists).

You might be able to get away with the Mesa Tone-Burst Clean Boost Pedal. Take a look into that which may give you what you are looking for without adding additional distortion to your amp / tone. Even a EQ pedal will do similar if used to boost certain frequencies to cut through the mix with some enhancements.

Dingotone HZD (can run up to 24v)
TC Electronic Spark (currently using)
MI Audio Boost'n'Buff
