But I'm realising that no pedals fixes it quite well.

If I could afford a Zwreck right now, I'd probably gig with just a guitar, amp and cord.
Good luck turning the wreck up enough to gig with just guitar and amp...
I suspected this may be the case... ZWreck Jnr then? :D
A jr would be fun I reckon

I run a 6W tube amp with a Powerbrake on maximum attenuation. It's still too loud for home use. Conway reckons his 5W Gremlin really needs the built-in attenuator. I'm hoping Marshmallow's 2W Dumble is more manageable.

I can gig a 5 piece band with a 12w amp perfectly well. It's only with early Knopfler tones that I notice slightly more hair than desirable.

An inefficient speaker can be a great tool for controlling volume if you have too much.

Wattage != volume

A good attenuator or master volume is much more important...

Ooooh John Mayer has been using one of those live recently!
Can you send a link to this, are you sure it's the 40 watt Traditional Clean?
Errrrr will try find it, I know he was playing the two rock deluxe reverb on the Jimmy Kimmel performance :)
I think he used a Fender Vibroverb, Dumble SSS and an old Two Rock custom reverb sig on the Jimmy performance

My cables arrived it's the second thing I've ordered from the states recently that arrived within 3 days, pretty good considering I went with the cheapest shipping option. Anyway I have some soldering to do so if anyone has any process tips to help make the process as quick and painless as possible I'm all ears, do you drill holes in a block of wood to stick the plugs into and do it production line style? Or is a vice or those soldering helpful third hand things the way to go?

I've got the helping-hand thing, complete with magnifying glass. The crocodile clips don't secure the jacks very easily, but they are great for holding cables.

The one about the fucking hairdresser, the space hairdresser and the cowboy. The guy, he's got a tin foil pal and a pedal bin. His father's a robot and he's fucking fucked his sister. Lego! They're all made of fucking Lego.

Still getting to grips with it, think I want to up the gain on the high gain setting for more fuzz, the low gain side is quite nice and I like the low cut feature!

Man this picture gives me some serious regret about doubling up on the tightrope! Keen to see the finished result.
