So, I rented a JCM 900 combo for my show tomorow, and I'm having problems. It has a power amp volume (which I believe controls the gain) Volume A (Footswitch off) and Volume B (Footswitch on) So, my problem is, every time I turn any volume past 2, I get natural distortion. This was the last amp at the shop, and I want some clean tones. I already have my Metal Muff for distortion, but how do I get a loud cleam sound?

The JCM900 is a "one-channel" amp which pretty much means the only channel(s) you have are gain and more gain, there is no clean. If you want a clean channel, try a JCM2000.

Do you use any distortion pedals? If you do, you could turn them off and switch it to the gain channel for a "clean" sound, and then turn the pedal on and switch it to more gain for distortion. That's what I do.

not all jcm 900s are single channel.

He probably has the dual channel. JCM 900 dual reverb

I'd assume if he had that amp he would have no problem finding a clean channel.

No reverb On my amp. But what I probably will do is have a crunch for clean, and pedal for distortion

^ +1. If you had seperate controls for each pickup, you could lower the volume on the neck pickup so that it cleans up better.
