hey guys, for a marshall jtm45, what are some ways that i could get it to get that cranked sounded earlier? i was looking at this http://davidbrayamps.com/pleximod.html
altho its kind expensive. anyways you guys can think of that will give me that sound without affecting the tone too much? thanks!

You could pull tubes. That'll reduce the wattage, and thereby get you the cranked sound earlier.

You cant do that on all amps though, and if it will work, it has to be either the inner our outer 2, and it affects the output impedance as well.

Dont pull tubes, does all sorts of nasty things to the amp without modification.

As far as EQ goes, boosting the midrange often increases saturation. lower the volume and place an Overdrive/EQ before the preamp will push the preamp harder? i dunno if thats what your going for though.

The only other option is to attenuate.

Get an attenuator.

The resonant frequency of the clitoris is too low for the guitar players to take care of.

Don't bother with attentuators, get a post phase-inverter master volume installed.

Link the channels. Use a short patch cable to connect the second input of channel 1 to the first input of channel 2.

doesn't really get you more gain at lower volumes.
