Doesn't mather on wich amp...but what should I focus on when trying the find my tone? Any hints ?

I'm not really qualified to reply, but perhaps you could spend some time with your band just messing around trying to find a good tone. Ask tehm to be patient and stuff.

Also perhaps you may find that your tone may sound different depending on the place you are playing. Acoustics or whatever they call it

no one can tell you the best tone of this or that, its all up to you to hunt down your own tone preference. But there are some tips that you can use, like less mids for metal, etc etc.

if you do find a good setting at low volumes, chances are it will sound different when your with your band practicing. Try and figure out settings at band practice level too.

Yup, that's the only way to do it. As a starting point when you do that, try boosting your midrange. Everyone likes the heavy sound you get when you scoop the mids but you need at least some mids to cut through when actually playing in a full-band situation.

Also when you find a tone you like, write down the amp settings. This will make it easier to recall when necessary.
I do this a lot coz I've got several guitars and use different amp settings for all of them.
