I want to ask , is there anyone who knows, how can i modify my Marshall AVT 50 to get more power on clean channel?
my AVT-s overdrive channel louder about 3 times then clean.
does anyone have any idea?

P.S.(my english is bad, i know that sorry)

loooots of amps are like that, id tend to think most amps. i dont think you cna do anything about it. hence channel volume/master volume was invented!

If you increase the gain of the clean channel, it will no longer sound clean. The distortion channels are louder because they are overdriven.

do you have channel and master volume? i dont know much about AVTs, i dont really like how they sound. The solution is not to make the clean channel LOUDER, its to make the driver channel QUIETER, in a way that your NOT adjusting gain, eg a power attenuator after the preamp.

But if you have a channel/master layout meaning your channels woudl loosk liek this

gain bass mid treb volume
gain bass mid treb volume (fx?)
then a master at the end

adjust the two channel volumes (raise clean, lower dirty) so that you can switch channels without any volume boost.

although i always run my dirty or lead(if the rythm is really gainy too) channel with a BIT of boost, for them screamin solos :D

In many amplifiers section lead plays stronger than clean section,
this because the distorsion is given by the glut of a preamplifier stage.
for comparison You can test another AVT 50, AVT100 ecc. ecc.
however also on the clean amplifier has to give 50W output.

If guitar pickup have a low sensibility, it would be better then
to use a small one-transistor preamplifier with a 9V battery. :rolleyes:
