Power Scaling WORKS!
#1
Hello Citizens

I must say that Power Scaling works very well. When you go from playing a large pyramid to playing in a small pyramid, you just set the dials lower and the tone is the same.

Not to mention protecting the Pharaoh's ears!

Kudos (yes, the Pharaoh knows Greek)

Hi!
I totally agree! Big Grin

I put Power Scaling in my Marshall amp and it's fantastic. It was a master volume amp already so I left out the Drive Compensation control and use the MV for that.Like the kit notes said to do, adjusting both controls keeps the sound the same dialling up and down. Sometimes i like to just turn down the Power scale control and have mega distortion - haha Cool

Thanks for such a cool product!

Hi Nauta,

That's a really worthwhile comment, coming from someone who already had a master volume control in his amp. I'd thought about just installing a good MV in an amp I'm building, but I think I'll go for the PS alternative now. Thanks for the information!
