had one once...

i am unsure of what you are asking, but i will assume it is the same issue everyone else had: the deville is loud as hell at 2 or 3 (on a 12 point scale). the reason for this is Fender got cheap and decided to not use a log taper pot for the volume (like every other amp in the world).

the good fix is to replace the volume pot with a log taper pot.

the kinda-usable fix is to replace the V2 preamp tube (the small tube in the middle) with a 12AT-7 or a 12AY-7. if that is not good enough, then place the V1 preamp tube (the one furthest from the power tubes) with the same type of tube. this is not the best fix, but it does help tame the volume on your amp.

edit: or what greeny posted, that has the right pot in it. run it in the effects loop.

Get your Deville modded with the Omega mod. I have mine and they replace the volume pot with an actually usable one and rework the drive channels to sound AMAZING. Look into it!

site? and price?


i got a vol box. same thing. Run it through effects loop? How does this set up. i use pedals. can u give a step by step how to hook up the vol box.


also changing the tubes would realistic and cheap. But how much of a difference would it make and where can i buy tubes at.

also what do i put my vol dials at? when i got vol box hooked up? I also only use clean channel and then for gain i use my pedals.

lots of places, you can go to guitarcenter or find a website like eurotubes.
