I'm currently exploring options on brightening up my amp, and would love some tgp input here. I constantly struggle with the bass and mid knobs on this amp. It seems the sound is always slightly muffled, thuds so to speak,or is dense. I always play with the amp on a stand to help battle the bass as well. I like a fairly full bodied sound, but one with clarity. As of right now it is all stock, so I could use some advice on what to tweak to clear up what appears to me to be an often times congested sound. Looking for any advice here really. Speakers, tubes, etc. even possibly suggestions for another amp, although I would really like to work with the LSS because there are several things I love about the amp. I generally run my knobs (viewing the knobs as a clock) gain: 10-11 treble: 12-3 mid: 9-3 bass: off to 10 presence: 10-3 master: to taste I play the amp anywhere from apartmentish volumes to really loud with my bands Any help would be greatly appreciated.
