    did you know that with a certain amount of playing with knobs on your you can get distortion if you didnt respond and ill tell you how then check again.
     
  2. But only amps with a gain control and a master volume right? SOme of those GK and Peavey combos are great for that!

    This might sound mean and I in no way intend for it to be but....... Why would you WANT distortion?????? (just wondering)

    "playing with knobs on your you" - hmmmmm.. too much of this can have a bad effect you know. ;) And I tend to agree that any "knob playing" I do, is to avoid distortion at all costs!

    You do realise, by the way, that not everybody has the same set-up and the same amount or lack of knobs? The very best hi-fi amps have no knobs at all (or maybe just one), so as not to colour the sound in any way.

    Playing with knobs on Your you will only get distortion if you didn't respond? :confused:
    Like in music, a pause can be a powerful thing. ;)
    Punctuation: learn it, know it, use it. :D
