My Qtron tends to cause some cool natural distortion that works to compres the sound, giving it a more Garcia-like feel (circa 81), but it does 'quack' really loud, sometimes painfully so.
this is close to what i believe you need to do. set the master volume all the way up, then put the channel volume to around 4.5 - 5, since it is not a mac output section maybe less maybe more depending on the overall output. the most important part, then play with your guitar at around 40 to 50%. use the guitars volume control to manipulate the overall volume both clean and effected.
a nice set of Jbl E or the lighter K's is always a good idea as some have stated.

i'd bet your twin has been modded to get more preamp gain or something. probably has higher value plate resistors or slope resistor value changes... those ultra linear twins are also imo, very dynamic amps. from my experience, it seems like an evelope filter wouldnt sit on that amps good side without doing some work on it.
