well i finally got around to playing on the thing. doesnt sound too shabby if ya leave the MID control all the way down, but turn it past a certain point and total midrange. yucky!!!! sounds very solid state when this happens, not so much if ya keep it turned down.  
any idea on how to mess w this? im thnking there is a solid state mid boost somewhere? has to be for it to sound that bad. thanx!!  
 
installled some germanium diodes, didnt work. BOO!!! so ill just change out some of the plate load resistors, and some of the bypass caps.
