DC 2 bad sound!

Post by sonicmember » Wed Feb 11, 2009 1:06 pm

hi! i have a DC 2 that was shipped from the uk to spain. i bought it new and in the shop it sounded great. no, there isnt any damage and all the valves have been changed for original new ones, BUT...it just sounds bad, cheap, tone-less. it sounds like $7.00 not the $700.0 i paid for it! everything works and the only thing i noticed is that there is a harmonic behind the sound, low in volume but there. any ideas?? could do with a cicuit ideally...

what do you mean by 'original new ones' when talking about swapping the tubes?
