Ok...I am niether a Dimwit OR a Electronic Engineer... with that said... I want to reduce the volume in my Twin Reverb to get better tone in smaller venues. I was told to and implimented removing the 2 middle output tubes. This helped somewhat but the AMP is still very loud and I still cannot get the remaining tubes "saturated" enough to achieve the results I am looking for. I was also advised that Attenuators just plain suck and will suck my tone while trying to acheive my goal. So... 1. Am I hurting the amp by running just 2 output tubes with no other mods (IE: impedence) 2. Is there a way for ME to get my volume down similar to the "Half Power" switch in a TWIN (NOT Twin REverb) easily? I have read many threads regarding this issue but I am still not clear on the best ways to get better tone in smaller rooms with this beast of an amplifier. Any advise os much appreciated!
