i have been having a few problems getting a sound i like out of my el34 shiva head. i play through a bogner oversized 2x12 closed back cab with vintage 30's. for guitars right now i am using a dean soltero. theres 2 main problems i am having one is now matter how i set my eq my tone is either too deep or too bright. i cant seem to find a middle ground. also my overdrive channel is grainy sounding. it almost sounds more like fuzz than distortion. i know alot of it could be the room i have it set up in. and the fact that i cant crank it. but does anyone know what i could do to help fix these problems? or settings i can try. the clean channel sounds great but its kind of sad when my girl friend tells me that it sounds better on the clean channel with a tubescreamer than my overdrive channel sounds.
