i have 2 questions that i hope can get answered..

okay im sort of new to learning about amps.. what is the difference between Solid State, Tube A, and Tube AB1. when would i use each one?

and what does low-res do? its in the master section of knobs if you know what i mean, thanks :P

the low-res is just a universal "low" EQ setting. its for playing metal type stuff i believe. solid-state is crappy, tube A is for when you crank it up and get that tube-goodness, tube ab is for tube-goodness at low volumes, but stresses your tubes more. i think.

The rectifier settings have to do with how tight the sound is (mostly the bass). Solid state offers the tighest sound while Class A is looser and AB is between the two. It's very subtle but just mess with it and find something you like.

Not quite....

The solid state rectifier setting isn't bad at all on this amp..., typically provides the tightest sound overall...

Class A(which usually doesn't really mean class A anymore) stresses the tubes more, and is the spongiest of the options... It provides the most organic sound out of this amp...

Class A/B is push/pull..... Much more efficient on the tubes, less spongy, tighter than class A, and a tad more gain out of this particular amp...

Note that Class A and Class AB aren't going to be very noticeably different though....

I recomend operating on Class AB, if anything to extend tube life as it's really not that different sounding than Class A.
