I've got a VK 212 few days ago...
Can you tell me some EQ settings cuz I just can't get a decent distortion out of it.
Is it maby cuz I have single coil pickups?

Try putting treble, mids and bass att 12 o'clock and tweak it from there....

If you want metal distortion, a single coil will not help you much.

Well for an AC/DC sound I have bass at like 4 and Mids and Treb at like 8-10. Gain boost off and at like 8, or more if you like. Then turn the power class to A with tight ressonance. Try that out

on a telecaster single coil, I run it full class A, bass at 1 o'clock, mids at 2 and treble at 10 o'clock. if its fairly new you still need to break in your speaker. it'll take about 50 hours of playing to do it, then the distorsion should smooth up. I'd replace the speaker in general, maybe an eminence legend
