Was wondering what musicians use the Normal and Vibrato channels when running dirt boxes into the amp. Who clips the bright cap out of the Deluxe Reverb (or the Reissue) usually for this purpose and who instead just leaves it intact? How do manage the brightness issue? Do you prefer it or try and dial it out? Using the Normal Channel obviously forsakes the use of reverb and tremelo. IIRC the Normal Channel does sound different even with the bright cap removed. So what is everybody doing? and please post your comments! I myself have not removed or modded my vintage 68 DR ... I just roll the treble down to 4 on the Vibrato channel but I wonder if the tone stack is meant to run that low and still sound good?
