Most people on this forum who have bought the V3m found it lacking on channel 3 and returned it. Just an FYI.

Guitars and amps are different ballgames though - I don't expect a guitar to fall off of a cab and be perfectly fine. I do expect that of an amp, and MIA Peaveys are well known to be able to withstand such trauma with no issue. I have trouble trusting anything else, especially something MIC (I would NOT trust my Vypyr to survive such an ordeal).

Orange Dark Terror used? Or, tweak up the bias on your EVH, throw in some high gain AX7s, add a THD Hotplate to attenuate down to manageable volume levels and mic the EVH cab. Cheaper and better sounding option than a new cab and mini head. That would be my rec...you could even skip the new tubes but if you want to eak out a bit more responsiveness from the amp it might help.

I'll throw the Orange Dark Terror out there.

EDIT: Didn't realize there was 2 pages.

People seem to not understand the channel order of the V3M and expect it to be like a Dual Rectifier, going low gain, classic high gain and modern high gain. The V3M goes low, modern high and classic high. It goes 'backwards' on the front panel, too.

I don't doubt that there are plenty of people who like the idea and then can simply never get a tone they like out of it no matter what they try, but a lot of people seem to fiddle with an amp for twenty seconds and if it doesn't give them their dream tone instantly, they write it off as being sub-par.

See also: every Marshall which isn't a Plexi, 800 or DSL 2000.


Anyhoo, I'm with the others towards the start of this thread; stick with your big head and just use it at a lower volume. Buy a power attenuator to get more power amp saturation and compression at lower volumes and buy a smaller cab. The less speakers you have the less air you're pushing and the quieter you'll be. There's really no justifiable reason to ever plug into a 4x12" at home and it's hard to even justify it for full band practice. Save it for the stage and get a 1x12", 2x10" or something similar for home and practice.

Wrong application for an attenuator.

Your description of better is subjective. Not everyone likes 4x12's. You're only describing what you like, not what works for everyone.

Laney just released a lunchbox version of their Ironheart heads IRT15h. Should be capable of br00tz. Also has dummyload and USB output for computer use. Check it out, could be exactly what you are looking for.

Chinese quality control has indeed come a long way; they have a more experienced work force nowadays. Those big suicide-catcher nets and razor wire fences around the factories have drastically lowered the employee turnover rate.

I've never heard of the Bogner ATMA until I saw your post, watched the video and I honestly think that is one of the best sounding amps i've ever heard, sounds so juicy! Wasn't much fussed on the little Engl but I genuinely want that Bogner, amazing.

I heard the Atma being played at NAMM. It sounded like a real amp, not a pidly little toy amp.

They were playing it through a verticle 2x12.
