Weber Neo Mags in a 2 x 12 cab ... Yeah man middle coil all the way
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.
When I use the Q tron with my solid state rig it gets that Keene ( Kean ? ) College '80 sound all smooth and nice - with the Twin it has a ugly sounding distorted break up too much sound.
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.
Mike it seems like even when the channel volume is really low like 2 it does it .... Yeah cutting the volume knob is good
Another issue has popped up too
After about 20 minutes of playing a strange " ghost note " appears - kinda like there are two notes ...
I gotta say though I love it it for the most part -the reverb is awesome ;its bo loud ; and I love its sound
Just gotta tweak it a bit send it in to the shop maybe
