    My Blackstar has good distortion, but the Tube Screamer is almost unbeatable. What might I try in order to emulate the sound of the TS?
    Increasing/decreasing mids, more bass, less, less drive, more?.......any ideas?

    I know it's an odd question, but any ideas?

    You might find a speaker that will accentuate the frequencies your after before you find the circuitry mods to do so. Havent read of any mods as such for them. Unfortunately its hard to test drive the amp thru a bunch of various speakers without buying them. Or you might try a para EQ in the loop . Bob
