I just wish I could route the yellow side in front of the red side. The BB+ has this on a selectable switch.
I would just swap my dip switches but I have a high gain red side and wouldn't have enough gain without this option.
Definitely one of the best drive pedals I use regularly.
Strangely enough this is the music I grew up on. Of course there was always 90s rock and country but by the time I was coming of age rap and specifically southern hip hop is what I listened to. Including the obnoxious subwoofers in my first vehicle.

The speaker is a weber 12f150 and I wouldn't change this speaker since it is my favorite. I know the speaker isn't the problem because I use this speaker occasionally with a 35 watt 2x6L6 amp and it does not cause any issues with humbuckers overdriving too early.
I think you may be on to something here and for some reason I have been defaulting to the power tubes. I've noticed in the past the preamp 12AX7 can make a difference in regards to how clean the sound is.
Would I be looking for for higher or lower gain 12AX7 in this scenario, to keep the preamp...
Thank you for the detailed reply.
This is a custom built ab763 with only 1 channel and no tremolo. Simply put the amp is definitely loud enough but when I use humbuckers it starts to breakup too soon where I would like it to stay clean.
Here are some pics of the transformers and circuit.
Assuming a push pull, blackface type amp.
Will a cooler bias give me more clean headroom? I don't mean maximum volume output of the amplifier but staying clean as the volume increases.
Would swapping 6V6s to 6L6s increase the clean headroom?
My amp in question is able to properly power 6L6...
No clue, I've never played the handwired version nor a C12Q. The P12Q has a nice sound, very pleasing and musical. However the low-end doesn't hold up very well under fire from volume and overdrive pedals. IME.
I've never played the '68 custom deluxe reverb but one of the things I like about the 65 DRRI is how well the clean tone holds up under fire from overdrive pedals. The amp already has smaller output transformer and I don't think I would care for more breakup/less clean headroom.
If I was buying today I'd do wine red or standard DRRI and then swap the speaker with Weber 12f150. C12K is not bad either. P12Q may be a little farty if your gigging overdrives at decent volume levels. For home use the P12Q is nice. I've not played the '68 custom but I don't like the idea of...
I realize I never wrote an amp review after my honeymoon phase. Here it is.
The Two Rock Studio Signature 35W amp would be best described as a big, bold, clean amp. The second description I would give to this amp is an extremely versatile pedal platform.The overall tonal footprint for this amp...
