Re: Torres "Super Texan" mod
I sure am glad to know that I am not the only  
middle aged "basement rocker" who likes to fiddle  
with his amps. I've got a bf Champ, a sf Bandmaster Reverb, a Traynor Custom Reverb and  
a recent Pro Jr. I've been inside all except the  
new one doing cap jobs, trying different circuits,  
etc. Luckily I never succumbed to the Torres hype  
nor have I made any non-reversible mods (except on the Champ) to my "vintage" amps.

Actually I am quite pleased with the Torres ST mod. I used only the gain channel part of the mod keeping everything else stock. I am sure it wouldn't suit everyone's tastes or needs but it works for me. It is not a super-saturated overdrive sound, ala Boogies, but i can get a bit of bite (great for modern country music and blues). A stompbox will do the rest.

Why do people keep dissing Torres? His mods work! They may not be for everyone, but, nothing is. IMHO, I'm a believer!
