Hello everyone! I havenít been into MTS in quite a while. I have an RM 50 and RM 100. I had the treadplate modded a long time ago from voodoo amps. Itís gain is way over the top. The bottom end is a bit flabby and not defined. Iím looking to pull some of the gain and tighten the low end a but. Maybe get rid of some lows. First off there a small potentiometer on the board soldered in place of a resistor. Not sure what it adjusts. Anyone have an idea on where to start on the board to drop the gain down a bit? I like my ultra xl I modded myself but like I said Iíve not messed with these modules in years and am rusty on where to start with the circuit. Thanks for any help!
I also have a voodoo modded treadplate. That little pot is actually the gain adjustment. It's pretty sensitive. I did back mine down a little bit and it tightened up the bottom end. Put a little mark on the pot where it's set now and then try taking down a smidge. _________________ Syn1, Syn2, Syn50/50, MOD50, M4, Hilly's RM100 modded to dual, RM4 modded to dual channel.

Sounds good. Iíll try the mini pot. Its in the cap spot next to R11 on the board. Thereís a 472MPW cap in C3.
I know I made a bunch of notes on the mods for the modules I have but canít find them. I got excited seeing the synergy modules. I donít understand why modular tube amps didnít really take off like crazy. Itís a great idea although I think the modded modules I have from different designers all sound the same. Iím hoping the synergynones realynhave the character and Sound of the amps they are mimicking.
