  • Been keeping it simple.

    Just compression and boost into a tube amp.
    Picovalve with a KT-77 and 12DW7-12AX7 pre. Into a open back 1x12 cab with a C-Rex.
    Have a listen.
    Especially you Steve.

    I dig the boost 2:50 tone the most, and like the orange OD at the end -pretty cool brighter 80s JCM sound too my ears

    With those humbuckers already doing some initial compression, what kind of setting are you running on the Keeley?

      Here's a closeup shot that should explain it best. And the pickups themselves aren't actually that compressed compared to most of the rest of what I have. They're only wound to 8.2k for the neck and 8.6k for the bridge.Click image for larger version

          I think that having the 12DW7 in V1 has really opened things up for this amp. And I've always loved KT-77's.

            Funny, looking back at it, that "boost" is just the Keeley kicking in. The orange pedal is the only true boost.

              It's got a lot of clarity that's for sure
              nice job Dave!

              Kt77's are supposed to be kind of like a middle ground between 6L6 and E34L from what I've learned, does that seem to be your experience with them as well?

                Not bad for 5 watts into a 1x12 eh?
                The only EL34 that I have ever tried in my Picovalve was a JJ's 6CA7. Alas, after many long years of service, it finally gave up the ghost a few months ago. That's when I put the KT-77 in. The KT-77 has, to me, more mids than a 6L6. It doesn't have as much low mids as the 6CA7, but more than a 6L6.
                What I really think helps with the clarity is the 12DW7 in V1. It cuts the gain, but given how much gain I can possibly add if I want to, it keeps the top end from getting too fizzy and the bottom from getting too flubby.
                Of course the pickups play a big part because the Fuglies are remarkably clear, while still being very loud for an A2 low wind pickup.
                Thanks for the well wishes!
