||Soldano Hot Mod??|
I've seen a thing on the Web, called Soldano Hot Mod. Has anyone tried this thing? I says on the website that it's used to bring out some heavy distortion at low volume. You just have to replace one of the preamp-tubes with the Hot Mod.
How does it work and sounds?

I've got one. From what the guys at Soldono told me I bought the last one from Sam Ash in New York. It works pretty well at lower volumes but when you crank the master it can feed back. The principle is that you replace the middle preamp tube of your Marshall with a 6k11 in an epoxied little socket. The 6k11 is basically (2) 12ax7's in one thereby adding one extra gain stage. It can be a little noisy and the 6k11 gets eaten up rather quickly but the tone is excelent and you don't have to cut holes in you chassis to do the mod. Someone around here emailed me the schematic if you're interested.

Thanks for the quick reply!
Sure I'm interested in the schematic!! Just mail me.
I got a Laney LH50R amp, very similiar to Marshalls. Do you think I can use the Hot Mod in my amp?
