How can I get a smoother gain sound from these amps? IVE PLAYED WITH THEM FOR A WHILE, NOTHING IS WORKING!

Is your speaker properly broken in? This can have a big impact. If you are using v30s these are very mid heavy as are 6l6s in tone so dont assume you need your mids at 10 because UG said so.

I had this problem a lot so i changed to Earcandy, Eminence and now Jensen speakers with smooth mid ranges. I also use a thicker grillcloth which actually makes quite a difference.

One other thing is dont have your guitars tone knob at 10..roll it back.

Its a british amp, they arnt smooth. As for the dual rec, as someone said earlier, not a smooth gain structure, unless you scooped the mids all the way or something.
Gibson Les Paul Custom
Fender American Tele

F/S:
Orange Rockerverb 50
Orange PPC412

Uhm... You have 6L6's and EL34's mixed up I'm afraid.

And TS: IF you're talking about the lead tones, try using a neck pickup.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"

A couple JJ ECC83S preamp tubes in the first and second positions can help smooth out an amps gain. They work particularly well in Marshall and Peavey amps for that very reason.

The guy who said 6L6's have lots of mids has no clue what he's talking about.

Power tubes don't have that MASSIVE of an influence on your amp's tone. Preamp tubes have a greater impact. Even more influential is the gain structure of the amp.

Obviously. BUT saying that 6L6's have a mid spike is not even close to right.

Actually I was supporting your statement, but I guess the tone of the statement didn't come across in that manner.

Oh yes +1 to the no mid-spike statement.
