    There, I said it.... To all the non master snobs out there:boxer... Let me explain..... I have a rocknrollamps.com JK30r amplifier.... Its an ac30 with a 63 three knob reverb front end... It had no master volume.. While I loved the clean and reverb, I needed some ac30 growl........ I dont like using pedals so how could I get there.... I have a hayseed 30 that I loved using with its master volume... I always heard those amp snobs out there say .... " master volumes suck tone " .... But I wanted to try it.. Well, I had Jack at rocknrollamps.com install a post phase inverter master.... Holy $%^# The amp totaly smokes now.. all the growl I was looiking for is there along with the great clean and reverb... To all you amp snobs out there ...... BLAH !!!!!!!! By the way , my hayseed 30 may be up for sale soon !!!!!!

    I find the MV on my AC30CC1 to be excellent and extremely useful.

    I dont think I will ever have an amp without one.... It just works so well for power amp distortion...

    ...pre-amp distortion plus phase inverter doesn't quite add up to power amp distortion, whether it sounds better or not.

    Great! Glad to hear you're happy.

    I sometimes wish my Vox had a master volume for whisper-quiet bedroom volumes... turning the level down on my drive pedals to compensate just isn't the same.

    I liked having a master volume on my Vox AC30CC1 I had. I kind of wish my Vox AC50 had a master volume.

    I thought about adding one to my Fender '67 Bassman, but was talked out of it.....

    ac30cc2..... plays loud, but dials back for late night jamming. not perfect, but its definately good enough for 3am in an apartment.
