DC-5B drive channel too dark?

Post by Jalfrezi » Thu Jun 13, 2019 1:34 pm

I'm really liking my newly acquired DC-5B combo, but I'm finding the drive channel very dark. I have tried a 5751 in V2, and a 12AT7 in the PI, but it's still dark. Seems a lot better through a Celestion Gold, but I'm wondering of there are any other tricks to lightening up the drive?

Are you using the GEQ on the lead channel?
