    What makes high gain amps to have higher voltage gain, thus higher decibel gain?

    Hi, @teemuk @HotBluePlates . I just want to gain more understanding. I just got a manual of an Ampeg high gain solid-state amp called SS140C and on the technical specifications, it said the total system gain for the highest gain channel is 115dB @ 1khz. Marshall JVM410H, which is a high gain...

    Unbearable String Noise on Some NUX MG-300 Settings

    Hi, I just got a NUX MG-300, and it's the first device of this type I've owned. I was trying to create some high gain settings and I found that whatever I'm doing is causing just ridiculous amounts of string noise - extremely loud finger squeaks, and also when I play a distorted chord, then palm...

    Half the Weight = Half the Tone? 20W High Gain Amp Prototype

    Hi Everyone, I recently finished a prototype build that I've been interested in for a while. It's a 20W High Gain Amp with EL84. After hearing the Friedman JJ Jr. when it came out, I was really impressed by the sound for its size. That's basically what made me consider this project. That said...

    1980 Marshall JMP 50 Arcuturs Mod (4 Stage non CF)

    Hi Everyone, I got this Marshall that has been modded before by a German tech, but it was completely butchered, so I threw out the preamp part of the Marshall PCB and put in my own board with my Arcturus mod, which is a modern high gain circuit. It's also got a tube FX loop and a 2nd...

    Bogner Atma: mushy sounding? change my mind.

    Here's the thing. For the sake of change, im looking for a small amp for home. My main amp is a 50W 68' Handwired Plexi head (with PPIMV) into a 4x12 with greenbacks. Also, a small pedalboard with wah, chorus, phase, some drives, reverb and delay. The classic stuff. Bogner makes top notch...

    80s Bogner modded Marshall 2204

    Hi Everyone, I finally got around to making a video of this beast. I absolutely love this amp, but it took some time to find the right IRs, which do this amp justice. Somehow this amp doesn't handle IRs as well as my other amps, but I think I got a decent sound with this setup now. It still...

    Distortion Advice - Grunge, Metal, Rhythm, Lead

    Looking to get some insights from those of you that have played a ton of distortions. I definitely feel that amp gain is better; however, I don't know that it's in the cards for me any time soon to buy a new amp. That said, I do play a Mesa Electra Dyne that I enjoy for crunch.

    Metal-esque tone from my AC15HW1X

    I'm looking to get a nice tight and heavy distortion tone from my Vox. The other guitarist in my band has a Les Paul with dark humbuckers and a Mesa Dual Rec out of a 212 with v30s, so he's got high gain and low mids covered. I'm looking for a high gain tone that will compliment his tone, and my...
