...on its saturated channel, it always had a nasty crackle on the post (master) pot, and would only move from too quiet to WAY too loud at even the lowest gain settings. Just a boring clean channel with no real life, so I rarely used the thing at all.

So in the process of packing up, I found my little can of Radio Shack cleaner/lubricant, squirted each pot and the inputs a couple times and good lord does this thing sound amazing, all the issues gone.

Twin 6" speakers, it's really like a tiny little JC120 with a fantastically broad distortion range, from mild mild grit to full on 80s RAT pedal. Sucks that it only has one pot that controls rate/depth, but at its midway point, the chorus sounds like a slightly thinner version of the Roland.

Can't believe I didn't do this til now. /facepalm



“Don’t overplay. Don’t overplay. Less is more. It will always be: less is more. Nobody is ever going to remember all those fancy solos - even the guys that play them, most of them won’t remember - so play some licks that people can walk away humming, that people can identify with." --Steve Cropper
