Blackface Fender amps: low output volume in Helix

Hi All,

 

I found the output volume of undistorted (preamp volume around 3-4) blackface Fender amps ultra low compared to those of all the other amps. This is particularly true for the Twin Reverb amp and slighlty less for the Deluxe Reverb.

 

I have to add a post amp gain of +10dB in order to have a reasonable volume setting on the amp "output volume".

 

Not such a big deal, but I am worried of missing something...

 

Is it the same for you?

On my side I'm fine with the Plexi output level, but I never used it with low preamp gain so there could be the same issue. I will try!

 

In order to add the +10db just add a gain block after the cab (cf page 25 of the helix manual, light blue table)
