Totally fun amps. I plug in my 6-10s Silvertone cab and the amp drives it remarkably well.) That's exactly the sort of thing I'd like to do! What sort of mod would it require? I just plugged them into the headphone jack. I did a couple of little input mods from this guy... http://www.prodigy-pro.co...

Those have socketed op-amps. Mine had one of that was bad, so that side was noisy.
I think you can swap them and discover whether that is the problem.
