  • SOT - Master Volume or No?

    I much prefer a master volume control on an amp. I think that the lack of one severely hinders an amp's applications. What about you guys?

    DSC02461.JPGFunny you should mention this. I have been dealing with just the same issue.

    I have a1967 Ampeg Gemini 1 which has no master vol. and have been struggling to get that just right sound

    Just about an hour ago I found it. Nothing I did was quite right and I don't like pedals so did just the opposite of what I normally do.  I turned the bass and treble all the way down and put the vol. at 3 o' clock.then plugged into the accordion input and brought back just a little more on the treble control . With the tone at 10 on the guitar and the vol. at 7 the humbuckers scream .

      Love those Gemini's.  I have a G-1 as well and it's fantastic.   I've had the same problem though, it always sounds better just a little bit louder.    I'll have to give your tip a shot.   

      Ever try bridging the channels?
