Some really great insight here for those of us that are contemplating what modules to get modded. I have 2 donors sitting around and have been waiting for the right ones to get modded. The blue channel might end up on one of them.

Man... I think I want one of these... I think I'm digging the clips of the Red channel... The BLue is definitely cool too... I'm gonna call Rob & see what all can be done... 8)

It's really funny you mention that module. Rob and I just talked about it and how much I hate him for it. :lol: Mine does not have Plexi Mode, as you can see it has two structure switches. You'll have to ask Rob how he wired it after listening to my somewhat incoherent ramblings. Basically, I wanted two Blue Channels to dial in separately. I love the Ecstasy pretty much for the Blue; I can live without both the Green and Red channels on that amp. The Green is good, but nothing to write home about in my opinion and the Red just isn't my style.

This module is so good I was crying to Rob about having to sell my Bogner. This is the pic I sent him asking why he had to do this to me. This is an OLD Bogner Ecstasy. It is awesome, but I rarely take it off the Blue Channel. It will sadly be for sale shortly.

My Single Channel XTC sounds phenomenal...Blue or Red channel and I love the Structure switch!

The limitation on a dual is it has to be a Dual Blue or a Dual Red.

You can get a Blue/Red switch, but you are correct in both channels will either be Red or Blue depending on switch engagement. I opted for a second Structure Switch and Sweep.

Hey SALVAGED, if you get a JF XTC I highly recommend the additional mid sweep. Works well with this one and adds a ton of tone shaping capability.

Wow, thanks for the info, guys!! I'm extremely interested in the XTC. You've got me considering the red/blue swtich & sweep. My other mods are fairly straight-forward (I'm not much of switch flipper)... but this mod might be a good one to have tons of options, for those times I DO feel like tone-tweaking... :lol:

Wow, I love to get my fingers on the SG XTC LE and Fish as well as the Diezel Dual.

The second Structure switch is genius - that way can have distinctly different gain levels even though both channels are Red or Blue?

Correct, and they are voiced differently to give a wide palate of gain colors to chose from.

Beautiful mods Drew! Wow- Enough tones there to cover any kind of music and beyond...That Dual Angel E has to be unreal- (the single is for sure) and the Dual Salvado would cover everything I do in one mod.

Nice!!!!

Drew, on your dual HW-103, do you have to really turn the volumes up to match other mods? I'm not sure if something?s wrong with mine or it's the nature of the beast. Also, is yours the earlier version with more gain or the updated circuit? Mine's the earlier version.

The volumes DO have to be higher to match other mods, but I wouldn't say excessively. I'm guessing it's the nature of the beast being lower gain. I'm not sure if mine is the updated circuit - it was made in March 2013. I'm guessing that's the earlier version.
