HELP!
No matter what I do with my 50 cal, i can't get the signal to distort much.
I copy the same settings I see on a few demos where guys are playing death metal, and it's barely breaking up at all. It will get quite loud, but stay clean.
If I put the gain out to the lead setting and turn it to 10, it sounds slightly overdriven. that's it.
I bought it used. Have no idea the history.

It treats different guitars differently also, which makes me think there is something about the input channel.

I'm using 6L6's for power.

The power tubes are less important than the preamp tubes as far as overdrive is concerned. Have you checked the preamp tubes? Are they all 12AX7?
