Lately I've been getting this really thin sounding tone. King of "trebbly" and just not that great for a large solo. I am running a stratocaster through a Vox Wah Straight into my Fender Super Champ XD. I messed with the setting and took treble off and put bass on, I've mixed both. I usually have some slight reverb but not too much. Any ideas?
Thanks

Pickups, you need humbuckers if you want a thicker tone from that amp...I find that amp rather trebly already, Fender single coils don't help it either.

Yep, single coils (particularly on the bridge) tend to sound really trebly.

There are several things you can do. You can get thicker strings, maybe a stacked pick-up, a boost or comp pedal, maybe rolling off the tone knob a bit.
All the way from Palm Springs, just out of detox.

if you're willing to go this route, a new speaker would make a world of difference in that amp. something darker sounding with a little more power handling capacity would certainly help. a celestion G10 vintage would be a perfect match. alot of guys don't realize how much better speakers can help.

otherwise, a compressor and a good boost/OD pedal should be the ticket
