I tried an experiment this weekend.
I plugged in my LP copy and turned the "Volume" (gain) on my Blues Jr all the way up to 12 to get as much distortion as possible. I started the Master volume at zero and started to slowly turn it up. "One" still had no sound. "Two" worked. It was a thick distored sound but at (below) bedroom volume level. A person could even go to 2 1/2 or 3.
So what is wrong with that? Isn't that what some posters have been after? Seems to work ok. Or what am I missing?
I do the exact same thing with my Blues Junior and my 07 American Tele and I get all the distortion I need at even moderate household levels. Turn it up to "wake the neighbors" levels and it really does rock for its size, in my opinion.
