    Tm300

    I have just bought a TM300 pedal. The sounds are great, but there is no output when the Tweed amp setting is selected unless I turn up the Drive. On the other amp settings there is output even when the drive is set to Min. Have I got a faulty unit?

    Hi Peter, welcome to the forum!

    It doesn't sound like there's a problem with your unit at all. By design, Tweed amps are much lower in level by design. It's mimicking a small tweed amplifer, made popular by country artists in the early days of rock n roll.

    So if you are trying to get higher volumes when using the TM300's TWEED setting then cranking up the DRIVE would definitely help you get there. Hope this helps clarify things for you!

    Thank you Michael,
    That is extremely helpful....I shall rest easy and enjoy the TM300!

    I tried it at home with a small practice amp and just wanted to be sure...I will mostly be using it in a church band where I DI directly into the mixer and PA (saves lugging an amp about). The clean Tweedy amp sound will be perfect for that.

    Thanks again for your help,
    Peter

    Hi again Michael,

    Thinking about this a bit more, I guess my question is this...I can understand that the output from a small Tweedy amp would be low (and therefore would have to be boosted on the pedal), but I don't really understand why this doesn't just need the LEVEL to be increased, instead of having to boost the DRIVE... this means that the Tweedy setting on the pedal can't deliver a really clean Tweedy setting. (Mine delivers NO output on the Tweedy setting even with the LEVEL right up, unless the DRIVE is up also).

    thoughts welcome,

    Regards
    Peter
