So I basically know I'm getting an Epi Valve Jr for christmas, and I LOVE the tone on it when its overdriven, but because its only one channel and the volume controls the tone I cant play loud cleans. So I was wondering two things:
A) Can I mod a second Valve Jr to stay clean at high Volumes?
B) Can I set my rig so that a footswitch will switch which head going into the cab?


Thanks to all

Just roll your volume knob down for cleans....

Sorry if I didnt mention this, I want equally loud cleans.

Well, you won't get them from a valve junior, it doesn't have enough power.

Thats why I asked if I could mod one, I hear they're super easy to mod. But I dont know much about modding them. Then theres also the question of two heads into one cab?

Yeah, I think there are mods for more clean headroom, but you're still limited by the amp only having 5 watts. If you want an amp that can switch from OD to cleans then the valve junior might not be the amp for you.

you can run a cab in stereo and then a/b switch your guitar's signal between them.

I really like its clean and distorted sound. and being able to overdrive it at low volumes is a biiig plus, and I'm not playing anything like a big show...so it doesnt matter about the low wattage, I can always mic it.

If you need a clean amp I wouldn't get another valve junior. Something like a cube 60 or something might work well.
