I was always wanting something different from my origin 20 combo. No matter how I set it the sound just wasn't there for me. Not volume mind you, just tone. last week I bought a clean boost Spark mini. Put it in front of the amp and wow did it wake up. Smoother and the brighter plus more sense in how to adjust the eq and presence. Finally clicked plus I can compensate when going from single coils to hum buckers. Helped in every power setting as well. Guessing hitting the front end is a big deal in changing the sound.
