I've owned my dmoll now for quite some time and
I still couldnt dial in a satisfying tone for solos.
Still i love it's articulate and ballsy rhythm tone,
so i'm definately not giving it away any time soon.
I never use channel 3 because it has this glassy, fuzz like
distortion i dont really like, is there a way to mod this amp to
make channel 3 a more singing version of channel 2?
I want the articulation and attack of the diezel in channel 2
and a smooth singing lead sound with harmonic overtones (think mesa triaxis red or even better vh4 ch3). Does anyone have any experience with this?

What about bringing Presence down? Reduce Gain a bit and Channel Volumen up!? If you need more edge in Ch2 when you decrease Presence dial in more Channel Volumen and Treble. Perhaps you can work with the two Mastervolumes? Perhaps Ch2 more Ch Vol and less Master, Ch3 vice versa. It's always ridiculous how the Channel Volumes and Master Potis interact in all Diezel Amps.

Ever try an od pedal in front? Something in the tubescreamer 808 family should do what you want.

Thank you for the tip but i do actually use a tubescreamer in front already.

Tweaking the channel volume and gain control does in fact provide a bit more of the singing tone i'm looking for but still i can't really get used to the mid structure of ch3, it is supposed to be better for single notes with it's added low mids but for me it's unusable on stage, i can't even hear myself and in the mix it gets lost aswell. it just sounds compressed and like i was on neck pickup all the time, but still so tight that i have to slam my fingers down like stupid to get nice legatos out. i wish i could just have another channel 2 instead of channel 3. I also dialed out a lot of the low end as it really takes up space in the mix that is typically unheard, therefore decreasing the percentage of signal that is high mids, which are what is heard on stage, i mean the dmoll has obscene levels of low end, but it's more a studio thing i assume. I should mention that i already use reasonable levels of gain as i'm more a fan of substential and cutting tones rather than scooped sounds. at the moment i'm using my ch2 with treble and bass around noon and the mids at 3 o'clock, presence at 1 and deep at 10. gain is at 10 and channel volume at 2. master around 10 (i cant really crank it further, its so fucking loud). For rhythm im having the midcut engaged just to the point that i notice a difference, to compensate for the extra mids i use for leads. but still its not a perfect solution since the gain i use for leads is too much for rhythm and the other way around. Does anyone know if there is a way to make ch3 more like ch2?
