OK so I think now it might be my bass + treble up too high, but my clean channel clips when i play my strings hard, which I'm not used to happening on any amp ever. So is there a way to make my clean channel not clip so easily? It's SS so if I can just throw in a simple mod somewhere I could probably do that.

EDIT: I just noticed that when the Treble + Bass are @ 5 it doesn't clip. So I guess this is mainly a treble issue, the bass can be cranked with no clipping. Kinda sucks though.
I got some good guitars, yo.

Try turning your amp down; that's the only reason it clips.

yea you're not going to be able to "simply" mod a SS amp, let alone mod it at all.

You should probably mug John Frusciante or Ritchie Blackmore. They're small guys, we could take 'em.

Just look out for that other guy in the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Will Farrel. He's a tall mofo, got a long reach.

No the volume was low[think apartments] and it clipped. It was the treble being too high.

That's what you get for buying a solid state amp.

what... tube amps start clipping too... Angus young for instance, he does not use that much gain at all a lot of it comes from just having the amp cranked. its why you get amps with more headroom

what the ****, then whats the reason for buying a tube amp then other than good tone.

well the whole point is to first and foremost have good tone... thats the general idea...
and different amps have different amounts of headrooms. Heads usually have more headroom.

if thats what you were referring to with the "What the ****." sentence

^Actually he gets his distortion from hitting the strings super hard. He doesn't crank it hard enough to make it clip that much in the power section. That's how I do it, too.

I thought he does crank it pretty hard, since it's under the stage in a box with a mic so it isn't too loud?

Try rolling the volume on your guitar down.

Is this a new amp? If not then it could just simply be on its way out, because unless you crank it, clipping shouldnt be that obvious at low volumes.

Right, it's in an isolation cab. But it's run with the volume at halfway on the dial. JTM45's have a lot of headroom. I don't think that's enough to make the the power amp distort. It's working it hard, for sure.
