Hi, I have the 40W 6L6-based version of this amp--Fender Blackface voicing, single channel, no master volume. I play a strat and an ES335 through it. I absolutely love it for cleans and it takes pedals really well. I am interested in getting some natural tube crunch from this amp. The problem: I play & record primarily in my basement and I cannot do this at reasonable volumes. Should I consider trading for something with less power or a master volume? How about getting something like a Hot Plate? Ben F. can't put power scaling on it (no room) so that is not an option. Thoughts?
