    Mine is a stock one. I used to love the normal channel as it is warmer and darker sounding to my ear but now Im starting to like the vibrato ch. but i find the vibrato ch a bit bright with my fuzzface type pedals and some od and dist pedals

    I know a lot of people here are doing mods to their vibrato channel to make it sound not too bright. But some people here like to break in the speakers first which makes it sound a bit warmer.

    Love both channels depending on my mood, To those who use distortion, fuzz and od, which channel do you like better? What type pf music do you play and what are your amp settings?
    How long does it take to break in the speakers?

    Since I clipped the bright cap, I never use the Normal channel and I don't use the reverb (tank broke) or the tremolo on mine.
    I probably can't tell them apart but I always plug in the Vibrato!

    I use the normal channel. I never use the vibrato or the reverb on the amp so I don't miss them on the normal channel at all. (and tube replacements are much cheaper if you're replacing only the V1 and power tubes for tone improvement!)
