So I finally went out and bought myself a brand spanking new 65 DRRI. I've been wanting one for ever. Imagine my disappointment when I finally get it home, plug in my Nashville B-Bender with Bardens, and it... leaves me cold. It's kind of harsh and hard. I was hoping to get that airy (I hate talking about tone...), open, sweet clean sound. It sort of does that, but it also doesn't. It feels overly compressed, kind of lifeless and boomy, and just not what I was expecting. I tried a few things. I stuck my Bad Cat Unleashed in it thinking maybe I had to push it harder. Same thing, just more compressed. I tried a Mini Mass. Yuck. I stuck a Hyper Gravity compressor the front of but it just became mush. I've tried a bunch of pedals and they sound awful - harsh and unpleasing. I played with PUP height, and it was a little better, but still not what I was expecting. I stuck a treble bleed in my tele; nope, that ain't it. I pulled the C10 cap out thinking it might help, but was unimpressed. Maybe it's too new and needs some speaker break in time. Maybe the speaker (Jensen CK-12) is the issue. Dunno. I'm stuck for words as to what I want to hear, but think clean Knopfler on his newer albums. Clean, open, airy, dynamic. What say you, fellow TDPRI'ers? Give it more time? Play it hard and see if it breaks in a bit? Play with tubes (stock Groove Tubes)? Try a different speaker? HELP!!!!
