so i figure the Lucky 7 is like a "mini Marshall" right?
how easy would it be for a tech to hot rod it like a Marshall?
maybe an extra gain stage and a master volume?

but mustaches are pretty rad...

i was thinking about just a master volume now.
i know this is a TR inspired amp and a master takes away from the "magic" but i absolutely love the tones when the amp is cranked up to 10.
and in my little apartment, where i practice, i can barely get it up to 2.

i by no means mean any insult to Andy's design. i love it.
it's just i want those cranked tones at a lower volume.

I know what you are saying. We are all different and it is unreasonable to thing an amp builder has the same taste as you or I. I was being a little tongue in cheek. I would think it could be a little insulting to some builders though.

well it seems we have the same tastes, as i've loved the sound of every Fuchs i've heard...

i was considering a Hot Plate, but i think the MV mod would be cheaper, right?

What about a power scaling mod? I love the way it works on my Badger for preserving the cranked tone of the amp at different volumes.

I suggest an air-brake or THD hotplate, instead of modding it. While it might work (I've never tried it honestly !), the TR design doesn't lend itself to masters, fx loops and so forth that readily. I can tell you a master would sound vastly different than the amp driven b*alls out. Glad you like it.....
