Tweed Champ with DMM as clean boost. Wow!

    I just tried cranking a Tweed Champ to 8 or so, and using a Deluxe Memory Man TT as a clean boost (around 2 o'clock on the gain knob, mix all the way down).

    Man oh man. What a glorious sound. Clear notes with sputtery fuzz underneath them. This may be the best this amp has ever sounded, and the guitar volume knob becomes an instrument of its own.

    Cool! I recently picked up a Tweed Circuit amp that is basically an up gunned tweed Champ/Princeton, but I have yet to hit it with a clean boost. Will give it a shot soon!

    I learned about the Memory Man boost accidently,years ago...the knob got turned somehow,and it really woke up a Backstage Plus!

    I’m surprised how much better the Champs sounds when boosted, compared to just cranked. The low end is a lot less flabby, for starters.

    I should record it I guess.
