When I put the gain past 1:00 on the amp it gets really trebley and even when I turn the bass all the way up and the treble all the way down it still sounds really trebley. Does anyone have any ideas of what it could be?

Cheers

New power tubes are needed.

I learnt this with my Laney.

doesn't the amp have a bright/top boost/'brilliant' switch? keep that switched off if it's too trebly sounding, although the Vox AC15 is meant to be trebly

^my VC30 is also extremely trebly when cranked. new power tubes?

It's called an AC15.

It's how it sounds.

Turn down the tone knob on your guitar, on turn back the treble on the amp's EQ.

My amp sounded somewhat unpleasant when cranked - there was a lot of treble, and so cranking it resulting in a sound I didn't want (even my OD sounded bad).
I got new power tubes, and the sound is wonderful - I now want to crank it. All the time.

So, it's worth changing the power tubes to darker tubes (I put in rebranded JJs - Click here for the tubes I put in - link is a quartet, as the VC30 has 4 tubes instead of my VC15's 2).

It's like the bass doesn't even work when I play with a lot of gain, it only starts to sound bassy when I start to play clean. I think what I might do is get an EQ pedal.

The powertubes I've got in there are JJ's.

Maybe the JJs you have in there are old/broke/worn and need replacing.

The AC15CC1 doesn't have that.

Look into the treble mod for the AC15. I know there are threads, on HC, dedicated to it.
