Hey guys, I'm definitely a noob when it comes to amps. I have the 90's reissue version of the 63 Brownface Vibromate. I had it taken to a tech in Hamilton, and he added the bias circuit. I bought all new tubes for the amp, and it sounds great, but I can crank it to almost 7 or 8 and it is still pretty clean. Is there anything I can do short of buying different tubes? I remember the tech saying that the matched pair may have been too high of a bias?. But I could be wrong and they were too low.?

Well, I did forget I have 4 channels on the amp, two normal and 2 bright. I forgot to go to the normal side, I lose the reverb and tremolo, but it breaks up a bit earlier and also a lot louder.
I need something with a bit more bite than my Timmy.

How do you run two channels together?

I'll try it in a few minutes, but I heard with my amp the 2 channels may be out of phase.

Doesn't work. Plugged guitar into left port of channel one, ran a jumper from 2nd port of channel one into the left port of channel two. Only the channel 1 knobs work. If I plug guitar into channel two and jumper to channel one, I can only control with the second channel knobs...
