I've posted before that my MC50 is so loud I haven't even used it yet above 1/3 even with my band (this is driven by a Fyd preamp on 5 into an E120). You wrote:

Having also previously owned a Blues Deluxe, there is no doubt to me your MC50 is not working properly. When I bought mine, I forwarded it on for servicing before I even turned it on. 40 years wreaks havoc on caps and sometimes other components.
When and where did you last service yours?
When we Go to Heaven, will Jer ask whether we were the perfect Jerry ... or whether we were the perfect us?
What does Jerry tone mean to you? Copying Jerry slavishly? Honoring Jer's music no particular way but our own?
We're each of us unique. And also the same. Can we open our hearts and minds to both?
