Hotrodding a TBR1

I've come to the conclusion that I do have a TBR1, even if it does have weird front panel and no swiitches/pots on the rear. In any case, the gain on the lead channel is nice, but not enough for my tastes, so, does anyone know how to go about upping it? Would the SL version of this amp have all the gain required or do most people use an overdrive pedal?

Basically I am interested in adding to the gain stage and having someone modify it. Would it require modifications to the amp chassis and extra valves? Would I need diagrams of rivera and has anyone attempted this before?

Basically I want to be able to use it in a simple rack with just a noise gate and a tuner and without any extra pedals chained in front

Any help appreciated

Your best bet would be to just give Paul Rivera Sr. a quick call. He's been VERY helpful to me in regards to my TBRs, and is an all-around cool guy to deal with. He may be able to run your serial number as well and tell you exactly what the deal is with your amp. I'm sure that he could point you in the right direction as far as making some mods as well.

Rivera's number is (81833-7066. Just ask for Paul Sr. and if the receptionist asks, just tell her that you've got some TBR questions

You can try e-mailing at [email protected], but...it'll be a LOT faster to just give them a call.

Good luck!
