My 1987X recently got cleaner sounding. I used to get the distortion I wanted at 6 on the volume. Now its at 8 for the same distortion.
I run the amp with no bright cap. I put back a 100 bright cap, but it didn't help. I don't like it with the stock cap.
Could the amp breaking in give it more headroom?
What tweaks can give it gain quicker?
