Hi guys, I'm new here and would like some help to solve a Badger 30 ~problem~ (I could call a minor inconvenience). I think the amp sounds great clean (gain until 4) and with a little crunch (gain 4-6), takes all my pedals very well, etc. The thing is... when I put the gain over 6, it starts to create some high freqs that don't seem to mix very well (I think that's what you guys call 'fizz'). When I boost with my OCD, I can get rid of those frequencies by setting the tone very low. But I would call that cheating . I would really like the amp to sound great without needing an external solution. So, to fix my problem I've done my homework and thoroughly searched all topics on the subject and have some ideas I would like to share with you, to get some feedback and suggestions: 1. Break in the speaker: It's a 112 suhr cab with Vintage 30. I've done some gigs with this amp over the past 3 years, but nothing too heavy. So, I'm trying to push the speakers e probably get some results in a few weeks. Or am I wasting my time? 2. Change the tubes: I don't know what tubes are in the amp, but I could change the power tubes for Mullards EL-34 and the preamp for JJ ECC83s or 12ax7 Mullards. Any other suggestions for a smoothier drive? 3. Change the speakers: I think the overall impression is that the V30s are fizzy amps. Considering the wattage limitation (30w amp in a 112 cab) what do you guys recommend? G12-65? ET-65? 4. Change the pickups: I usually play with my maple strat which is a pretty bright guitar, specially in the bridge pickup. Any recommendations for a pickup swap too? Thanks!
