Re: mesa booger V-Twink update
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!!

Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.
