  • Amt SS-11 (b) issues and possible solutions

    Hello guys,
    I have recently purchased an AMT SS-11 (b) preamp pedal and am having problems with the low end response on the 7th string of my BC RICH which is tuned A#.
    1) it doesn't have the gain/distortion especially in the lead channel that it claimed and
    2) its very bassy and muddy (A# string)

    Now since this pedal has tubes, maybe replacing them will sort out the gain and annoying low end response? Or will i need further modification?

    Please if you can help me out i would be really thankful.

    Welcome, Lowend! Thanks for joining us.

    I'm not familiar with that brand of pedal, so I can't speak for its "sound" as such.

    If we had more info, that would help.

    What amp are you playing through? What wattage, and ohm rating? How do you set your tone, gain and master volume?

    What size and ohm rating are the speakers, and how many?

    Can you post a sound clip which would detail your problems? We can accept links from YouTube, and most of the major sound file hosting sites (Soundcloud, Soundclick, Mediafire, Dropbox etc).
