DC-5 Lead Channel Reverb Volume Low

Post by tbonesullivan » Mon May 08, 2017 11:14 am

Title says it all basically. I've had the DC-5 for a bunch of years now, and it's a great amp. Great sound, flexibility, etc. I'm currently in the process of making a replacement tube guard for the rear, as the original was removed several owners ago.

Anyway, one thing that has always kinda gotten to me is how relatively low the reverb level is on the lead channel compared to the clean channel. Is this by design, or is there something not right with my DC-5? I've got to pretty much bump it up to 8 or 9 to hear anything at room volumes, while the clean channel is almost overbearing at 5 at the same type of volume level.
