    I did the Diaz mod to my AC15C1 removing the bright caps on the TB channel and with the 78 Badass dist it sounds great?! Im shocked, I just wasnt expecting it to sound this good.

    Cool. The mod is supposed to really help.

    Dale...it does! The amp really responds to single coils and humbuckers much better as well.

    I just got an AC15C1. Thinking of clipping the Brit cap. I have done a couplenDRRI's. Is the Vox pretty straight forward?
    I just picked up a Badass OD too. Looking forward to cranking things up!!

    I did the mod in mine although, well I clipped the one side and bent them back a little so the other side is still attached. I didn't notice a significant difference but it sounds great.

    Is it worth the hassle of taking it apart?
