I sent my Studio .22+ to Mike Bendinelli for him to add a fourth volume pot at the back of the chassis.
With this "Lead Drive" pot, you can dial the gain of the clean and the lead channels independently (it resembles more of a Mark II and III).
It is a very common mod in these amps.
Maybe there is a similar mod for the Studio .22
Wow looked up Mike Bendinelli pretty impressive .........maybe that is an option.. I'll have to find out how much.
I'm guessing the Studio 22's are worth about $600 so don't know how much to put into it. But i'm ahead of the game $ wise; Before My friend passed away i bought the boogie, 77 Twin, a park, a midi keyboard, and 5 guitars for $2500. I fixed the twin up but that is loud and Max headroom.
I have tried a lot of settings i'm just not getting that legendary MESA sound i keep hearing about.
I want to love this amp but just not getting the sounds crunch and drive.....wonder if some of the filter caps are bad. There must be something wrong with it.
I see lots of Tone for the 22+ but not many video s on the 22..
I want to hear what this thing is supposed to sound like....Any 22 users on here with some tone settings?
