If it was a single channel amp I'd take you right to it, but I'll have to look in teh good old tube amp book later!

Hi indysmith,
I've recently got a 4104 myself, and I have to agree that it's a damn fine amp! As far as I know, it IS a two channel amp, except you don't have the facility to change channels whilst playing, you have two inputs instead, high & low.
Congrats on your excellent choice of tone shaping tool! ;)

hehe, yeah, its definately kicking some ass atm, now that i've had the chance to play with it a little, I've found that i can use the blues channel on my Mesa as a great gain boost for it, and also, with it set up right, now much of an e.q. difference - it still sounds like a JCM800!  :D  i always thought that the 4104 was a single channel, and the inputs were just applying different levels of gain on the same preamp. (like a split channel kind of idea?) I'm probably wrong, and everyone else is probably right, but i thought the 4211 (or something like that) was the 2 channel version? no? doesn't really matter either way - it sounds great, and i can coax almost any sound i desire!

Oops, yeah dumbass me :lol:  That'll teach me to check my facts!

You now need to tell me if it's got the pots mounted on the circuit board, if it does it's more of a pain in the ass. If not, there's a small disc cap accross the preamp control, cut it out and that'd the mod. I've known some gurus charge a fortune for this mod!!
