Just got a great deal on an AC15CC1 with the Wharfdale Speaker and... I hate to say at this point it sounds like my $70 solid-state Fender 25R *facepalm.* I'm using a Japanese made Epiphone Les Paul Custom.
I'm a complete newbie to tube amps and need time to break in the speaker, but the tones
sound too "spongy" and boring, and I'm getting hiss when really driving the top boost.
Anybody have some advice/settings to guide a new AC15 owner achieve tonal liftoff? I hope I don't have to upgrade the tubes and speakers at this point, otherwise I should have spent the extra money on a C1...
(and I've searched these forums for good tips, but could use more specific advice - thanks!)
