Sounds like a III to me, mushy low end transients (not inherently bad but not like a IIC_+), what were your settings?

This captures a IIC+ perfectly to me, although I can't tell if his treble shift is pulled. My III+ sounds much closer to this with it not pulled but "the" IIC+ sound always has it pulled.

Well , The Settings are a bit weird as the mod i have made is a bit different , it includes connecting v2 with v3 directly , and this cancelled my clean channel , i will post the whole mod after i am totally done.

the treble pull shift is off , as when i pull it out , it feels more like iii than iic+.

i will be working on this issue the bass response specially , but trying some lower capacitors ( 800pf or lower ) also i will check the resistors of the pull deep and bass shift , may be changing them give the amp a more tight low end than being mushy as you said.

What did you do to make it a ++ out of interest?

A really good playthrough of a IIC++ and other IIC+s is done by this guy for comparison.

Check out his other videos definitely!

What do you guys think of this Black Stripe video with a IIC+ 105 transformer out of interest? Still got that III sound or more IIC+? (not me playing! Just thought I'd get one up for comparison)

It's hard to tell with the micing there but I think it's somewhere between what I've heard from IIs and IIIs. The pre section definitely sounds more III like to my ears but I'm only really going on how I think a II should sound.

Here's my III+ trying to ape the Metallica sound. It does TBA way better than it does Justice or Puppets.

The IIC++ vids etc. are me. You can get them to sound pretty close, but when you're a/b-ing them in the room there's no comparison. Sorry. The IIC+ FEEL is on a whole other level.

If you can't swing a C+, a loop modded IIB or an early III are still very good. Listening to your vid, it has that harsh fizz that you'll never really get rid of with a III, especially a blue or a green.
