hey guys, do you guy have a need to crank it past 3? its blasting at that level, it does sound good, but ive always heard that you get that "brown" sound by crankin it to the max. Also, i always leave it in the rythm (clean channel) to emulate eddies sound. Do you guys use the lead channel for eddies sound?

thanks in advance

I haven't been able to get any usable tones out of this amp. The only brown sound I get is brown like shit. Surprised

I haven't put the volume past 3. I can't. I am not sure how vholic is getting those tones from the combo. Maybe his is special or mine is broken.

I am now getting decent tones from the amp even at bedroom levels. I dropped a tone zone in the bridge of my OLP. I take it back. I take it all back. Smile

I was able to peg the tone from VHII .. I have been playing somebody get me a doctor and it sounds good.

one of the reasons why the tone wont sound as great is because tube amps are meant to be cranked, however when I had a peavey 5150 combo, i was still able to dial in some nice tone with the preamp max and the master lowered. alot of the tone from the 5150 combo comes from the preamp section.

but tubes in general will always sound better cranked, if you cannot crank it too loud, your probably better off using a amp modeler for low volumes.
