I was thinking about getting a suck knob. Would I be able to place between the head and cab so then it would just act as a master volume.

Good post dudey.

it doesn't really do anything the suckknob is nothing more than a glorified master volume

1) It goes in the effects loop.

2) The VK already has a master volume, correct? It'd be redundant to get something that essentially does the same thing.


no there is a volume for each channel but there is a master reverb

no it's actually helpful. you found it right? you clicked on it right?

also, on the lead channel of the VK there is a gain and volume knob. the volume one is the master for the gain channel.
#7
Have you even played a valveking that makes no sense. If I turned the gain all the way up and the volume down it would sound muddy as shit. Besides u like the blackhawks u don't deserve to live.

Get the amp so I can put the volume higher but the amp won't be as loud just the tone would be better

for that you'll want an attenuator. The two hot picks I see around are THD hotplates and Weber attenuators. These are good for rock OD sounds, but for metal easier to stick to preamp gain. I can't go in to detail as i haven't used any but i hope that gives you a starting point

Trolllll.

Or a complete dumbass.

Either way, good thread.

The VK does have a master volume. Gain is preamp volume, volume is power amp volume. Which is the exact same as a master volume just labeled differently and on a seperate channel..

The VK sounds muddy as shit with the gain turned up because its a mediocre budget amp.

thanks I've been looking at the hotplate but the least priced one I've found is 330 bucks and I just got the vk and how much is a weber attenator

If you really want a better sound out of your VK, go for an EQ pedal. The VK has alot of weird frequencies that need sorting out and an EQ will do you much better.

An attenuator is more for slightly cutting an amp that's already loud (like too loud for stage volumes) not for bringing loudness down to bedroom levels.

+1 to all of this.

And +1 to these 'ebay' attenuators being just a master volume...which you already have on the VK.

Sorry to all the guys who I was a dickhead to except for Greg I just tried it out and doesn't sound as muddy as I thought it would be. And I was thinking eq pedal for a bit what about mxr eq I heard good about them

I think you should get 3-4 sucky knobs, and then stick them up yer ass.

Poor greg...

Seriously, this thread is a failure, master volume will not make your tone better unless you simply dont already have one. Try getting an EQ in the loop, it will work wonders. Dan Electro Fish n Chips is good for the price. $30 new

The Danelectro Fish N chips is a decent budget EQ...

Not as good as the MXR 10-band, or a rack EQ....but its also 1/3 of the price.

This is I don't even know?
How are you eq'd. The valveking has too much mids. You need to turn your mids all the way down. You can get an eq pedal to get it down a little more but I suggest getting the amp modded for less mids.

I punched in fish n chips in youtube expecting to get a pedal review or something, but I got videos of actual fish and chips

But I will probably get one when I get my tube amp later this year. Seems like a solid pedal, and anyone can benefit from an EQ in the loop.

every amp I've seen with master volume also have a volume and gain why is this?

for those amplifiers, gain knob controls how much signal is bypassed through the cathode bypass capacitor, in probably first or second gain stage. volume controls the output after the first gain stage. then master volume is probably before the effects loop buffer or the phase inverter.


an amp maker can add a volume knob after each gain stage. but there isn't really a need to do so.

Yes, this is true. a PPIMV would do what you want, but that would involve modding the amp's circuit. I'd recommend taking out the A/AB pot in the back and changing it for a PPIMV.

Thread fail.

TS, a couple things:

1. Don't be such an asshole.
2. Don't bring hockey into a GG&A thread. It's called spam.
3. Just get a $30 EQ pedal to improve your tone.
4. Better yet, stop being so close-minded. You might be able to hear things better.

I'm the one who made the Wiki, imbecile.
I have owned a VK, modded it, sold it (college dorms = quiet hours), and plan on buying another modded VK.
I know what the hell I'm talking about.

Like I said, the SuckKnob is a waste of money for this amp. You'd be better of buying an EQ.
