Hi g1.. yes I saw this clip prior to buying it.
With my preamp vol up full, the -1st- part of the vid is what I get. It tallies spot-on me with you, that the ammount of OD I'd expect would be like the latter part too. Hence my thread.
I don't suppose you can ID the latter to be preamp or 'proper amp OD' from this clip-? It does sound a bit 'fizzy/ so-so' suggestive of preamp to me, perhaps. Turning the MV up to ~3/4 to get a similar OD 'saturation', Id expect alot richer tone & sustain.. but it is a poor recording. And I can't do that here. Shame I can't see the dials.
