    Am I right in thinking that mod makes the Output and Solo functions no longer work?

    A good start. Zero drive, level on full, tone about 1 o clock. That into a recto is an unbeatable combo.

    No they still work fine. The mix knob on the back is removed from the circuit, that's all. You'll notice a difference as even the 100% mix position of the mix knob is not really series, it's still parallel. It's well-worth the effort to do the mod if you're decent with a soldering iron and just stay away from the blue capacitors.

    One last note, you will always have to have at least a cable in the loop. After you do the mod, having something in the loop connecting the send to the return will be mandatory or you will not get sound. When I sold my triple, I sold it with a cable in the loop and advertised it was a modded loop so the buyer knew what to do with it when he got it.

    I always liked my Klon-style overdrive in front of my Roadking. It doesn't "tighten" or cut the low end at all, and the Drive knob is actually usable, adding in that compression that the Recto's don't have.

    I love my Klone as well. I dont play nearly as heavy as anyone here but it is always on for me. I play a range of guitars and it works for me for Humbuckers/P90's/Singles.

    Any tips for a lead tone? I'm finding that I love the "hugeness" of the rectifier but I seem to prefer the Mark IV for leads and clarity on heavily distorted tones. I was planning on selling the Mark IV but I'm not sure if I should maybe just stick with the Mark IV and sell the Triple Rec. Or be irresponsible and keep both...

    I use the orange channel on modern with the mid cranked, bass at about 9PM, treble all the way down, and presence to taste. Gain a bit higher than normal because having the treble off really backs off the gain.

    Edit: Note that this sounds better the louder you play.
