i found that the sweet spot for me is gain about at 8 so the bright cap should not work to much.
The sound is rich in mids and high mid but very poor in mid bass and bass and that is strange (comparing to other 2204 - same era - i've heard live and on you tube)
The tone has a heavy mid - high character and sounds almost metallic and not rounded (considering the eq: bass 3, mid 7 high 4, pres 4)
The previous owner added a res in series to the bias res (think a 56K); without that res it is not possible biasing the tubes (the trim - 22K - can not set up the tubes' bias)
Can it be part of the problem?
I can not solve this issue
