Got it! It's beautiful, inside and out. Now what do I need to do to get the volume up? Maxed out and it's still no where near unity volume. I need more power Scotty!!

You can jump the resistor at the top of the board and that will increase the volume, easy to do and remove

like this one Phidias has for sale at the moment -

I did that with my original MkIV years ago. Made a huge difference.

Looking for some tweakery suggestions. Are there any mods I can make to get a squawkier midrange? Mebbe make it a bit less civil, like pops after a wee bit of Hendrick’s? :cheers:

Played it through a dirty amp for the first time today. It’s a different beast. I’m hearing way more variety in tones while tweaking the volume and tone knobs. It’s fawkin’ awesome!
