Congrats! I also own a 3 channel and could not be happier!

The dirt on the clean channel is kinda there to stay....you could turn the gain down, but then volume goes too......I actually like the dirty clean...it's a nice variation!

Depending on how loud you need it, try turning the gain down and master up to compensate for it.

Another approach would be to keep the gain low....master up, along with mids and presence....that can bring the channel out more, giving more "volume".

make sure you try those sample settings, and make sure it's set to "Silicon Diode rectifier", and "bold" power on the back panel switches. I've owned the Recto Preamp, and I was able to get a very clean sound using their sample settings.

oh yeah, congrats on the amp man, sweet aquisition.

what made you choose the Roadking cab over the recto cab, if you don't mind me asking? Does it have half closed and half open? Also, what kinds of connections are on the back? I was looking at the head a while back, but the progressive linkage looked way too complicated to be appealing.

The RoadKing, I beleive, is a 1/2 open 1/2 closed. But I just saw it for a little bit.
