    I remember when I had the DSL50 and there was a noticeable sound gap when switching channels but if it's doing a volume fade in thing I think The switching mechanism needs to be looked at.
    Others in the interwebz have had this problem it seems.
    Also,
    With these sometimes it's easier to use each "channel" as a separate amp and never really switch during a song... roll back volume for "cleans" and use boosts for more dirt. You can get a ton out of it this way.
    I like the sounds you are getting with the amp.
    It is always frustrating when you're low on funds and you finally can afford a used version of what you want and you get kinda burned with tube amp problems.

    Ya it's really minor problems now, the thing works and actually sounds really good.
    I really like it.

    I also like digging into things and learning more about em.
    My only real gripe about the amp is that it's not very loud, I played it in 6-7 all night. It doesn't hurt you like some of my other amps ha ha.

    The tsl had a button for virtual power reduction they called it.
    It is like a fixed value volume reduction between the phase inverter and power tubes so you can drive the front harder at lower volumes

    Well I feel like an idiot.... Guess I should learn what all the buttons do before I play it...

    Well, that's a relief.
    Now I can say that the Randall I got from you a while back is still going strong.

    Ha ha that's awesome!

    I traded a buddy a brand new crate amp for this old Peavey back... I'm sure that crate still works prefect ha ha I only sell off the good ones apparently ha ha ha

    That Randall is stupid loud too! Glad to hear it's still being used.
