|Johan||making 50w marshall sound like a 100watt?|
I have owned many Marshalls through the years and just now realized I allways liked the 100watters more than the 50watters but always ended up with the 50watters becouse they are less loud..
I allways thought the 100's sounded more solid and a little cleaner than the 50's wich is a little fuzzier to my ears
looking at the schematic, there really isnt that much differance.
the 100's get more feedback and the P.I. see more capacitance with 4 powertubes than with two.
if I just move the feedback wire up from the 4ohm winding to the 8ohm and compensate for the decrease in capacitance by adding a small capasitor from the grids to ground, would that make it sound and feel more like a 100watter or will I just fry something?
has anyone else tried something like this?
am I missing something?
if anyone see a reason this wouldnt work, please stop me before I do something stupid...
