So Ive setup my Resissue Blues deluxe into the MC50. Couple of immediate evaluations. Dead quiet for one. Much more articulate in the response and especially in the bottom end where I always thought the stock power section was a little too loose for my taste. Still sounds like the Blues Deluxe as expected. Just different qualities as described. I will say I was disappointed in the overall volume. I set the Mc50 at 12 and also in its maxed out position (5 o'clock) and really did not think it was very loud. Certainly not as loud as if I was driving the tubes. I wanted to keep the Clean section of the Blues around 5 but played around in the 7 range for more volume. My take is the pre amp should be in that range for a good clean sound and the MC50 should drive the volume. Anyway just passing on some observations. I cant imagine any modifications will improve volume. Maybe tone but volume I would think it is what you got. Any thoughts?
