    Is there a reason the Red Channel on the 5153 wasn't modeled? Is it really identical to the 100w? Or, are there adjustments I can make to the parameters on the 100w model to get to the 50w, such as adjusting the input trim? If so, how much of an adjustment?

    Yeah, it's identical, just turn up the input trim.

    As for how much, sorry to give the standard answer, but it applies more here than ever....... Use your ears, not your eyes. Input trim is a flat gain increase, so it's really only to taste - it's not going to change the tone terribly much.

    I think Eddie has a mod for bias on his touring amp now, but yes this is the new fender made 5150 III amp that Ed uses.
