Finally!

I got my Hot Rod 100+ back from local amp guru, Bruce Egnater. I had him install his custom Density mod (similar to the Depth mod) and bias my amp for KT-66HPs.

Let me tell you, this amp slays anything I've ever heard, ever! Bar none! There is not a style that this amp cannot cover, from the darkest of metal, to dirty blues and pristine clean. Bruce's "Density" mod is a poweramp control... much like the presense is to high end, the density is to the low end. Since its a poweramp control, I can add all the low end I want and it doesn't get muddy.

Now, I can cut through Marshalls, and scoop better than Mesas, as well as hanging with even the best of clean tones.

Thank you so much Mike and Bruce, you guys are fucking awesome!!! grin

I did make clips before, but had to re-arrange the basement, so the mic placement is different. However, with the knob on 0 the tone is the same as before. I will be posting clips soon enough, I promise! smiley

So his "density" mod acts like the depth button on the JCM2000, adding lots of chunky low-end?

NICE grin

I think the deep switch on the JCM2000s cuts some of the mids out. The Density knob just adds more low lows, and keeps it nice and tight. smiley

Does it differ any from the Soldano Depth mod? Sounds like the same thing but is Bruce doing something differently? smiley

Hello Styles, is Bruce still in the Detroit area. I recently had Dan Russel over at Blitz amps do the XL mod on my HR50+. I'm pretty happy with it, although its still not my number one amp.

Yeah, his shop is still in Oak Park. If you can swing the $100 I'd have Bruce do it to your HR...and get KT-66HPs too.
