It is kind of crazy, they don't move around very much. I have had very few ever come back for repairs. I haven't seen one since I moved to Minnesota in 2016. Check with TEJA Tubes he had several of them. Seems #9 was the magical amp and I have matched several amps to that amp.
The first SOD originals there were only 25 built. Too hard to build lol. I would like to do something different and that day is fast approaching, I want some "sweet" amp with more clarity. Maybe full octal tube set. Of course that said, I was playing a new SOD II today and it blew my...
I remember that yours was in the very first batch of amps as I remember, at 65 I don't remember yesterday most of the time. But the Super Overdrive II is a monster in comparison. And I have trimmed back the bass, especially in the OD2 channel.
Yes I changed vendors and had to make new drawing and gerber layouts. The only difference is I added two holes to pick up power for the FET boards.
I switched to the single off/stby/on switch about a year ago, I first changed it out on the Matchbox. Ted you can chime in if you would like...
Honestly don't know as I have not tried it, but I would guess that darken the overdrive a little and would have no effect on the clean channel as the circuitry and signal path would be identical. I might have to give it a try on my amp.
It is by design, the V1B feedback loop is switched out which extends the bottom end of the tone stack recovery stage. With the loop in place the OD1 tone is smoother, with it out, the OD2 gets a thumpier response.
