Easy to mod! Then it sounds incredible!!!!

Wait, that's only 7 words.....

I need more!!!!

There you go!

I have a super souped up DC-3 that can get just about as nasty as a Recto, but has incredible low mids that just cut through the mix.
The full set of Mercury Magnetics transformers helps a lot though! :mrgreen:

I have played that amp, and trust me people are floored when they play it and crank it. It reminds of sitting in a big concert asking myself, "How does he get that tone? I love it!"

Monsta knows tone!

Thanks to you, I have that tone back!!! I keep thinking that you are eternally destined to have GAS.....I would be screwed if my initials were G.A.S. :lol: Although I did just buy another amp this morning.....

I'm loving my tone but I'm curious to the mods you made to make it more awesome. Can you share those to see if I can find a tech to modify mine.

Thanks!

Ahh yes. I recall reading that post. Sounds very cool! I dont think I'll try to mod it myself but I'd like to know where the parts/ares that you mention are.

IS this the schematic for the amp?

IMO the hardest part is keeping the DC's praises under ten words. :lol:
