Well i don't seem to be able to get a real nice low end from it.

I am wondering if it is perhaps the tubes, or maybe the cab *the standard accompaning cab for the vh100r* isn't that great for bassy eqing.

im going for a death metal sound.

i would be content with Opeth/ Necrophagist like bass

@ timi- i am fairly certain i have the standard tubes - save the first pre amp tube i changed that.

@ SG thrasher- i use a Zack Wyld OD and just got a ot Plate Attentuator i hope that works.

still my friend comes by with his Spider II/ Peavey Supreme setup he has going on and the bass kills mine.

is it just that those heads he is using have alot of bass to them and make it so it seems like my bass is miniscule when really his is just HUGE

VH's aren't really death metal amps in all honesty.


haha yeah, but i got the half stack for 900

which is killer, so i intend to make it work for me.

if push comes to shove ill just change all the tubes to more metal oriented tubes.

or sell it
for way more then purchaused

Er, it is very relevant. The volume level affects the tone of this amp A LOT.

In fact can you just post up your settings?
A dwarf might hear you. What then?

well then thats fine.

because yesterday i did practice with a drummer and it did sound more bassy as the volume raised.

Hah well at the moment its all over the place.

you know how it goes, tinkering away until you find that tone you love.

but it did answer the question, as long as i know that if i did play or a show or just jammed at high enough volumes the bass would br decent? im fine.

The bass is very dependant on the volume - if you get the volume up to 4 or so you'll get a nice amount of bass, once you go past 7 or 8 you might start to lose some as the amp saturates more.

Don't overdo the gain either, too much can suck some of the low end out of your sound. Turning your mids up a bit will give you a bit more "chunk" too, as will flicking the resonance switch on.

yeah i have the drive rolled at about 11 'o clock and gain at max.

i find that doesnt kill the bass or make it muddy.

and i do love my mids!

hah thanks for the help, much appreciated

Yeah, the louder an amp is cranked up, the more bass you will get from the cabinet being pushed harder. Speaker cabs affect your sound hugely by being pushed hard rather than being quiet, when the speakers really start moving you will notice it.

All Laneys have EL34s as stock tubes, which aren't the wanted tubes for low end chugging (mostly). I say switch the powertubes for 6L6s, that should help a lot.
