Hey UG,

I love my epi vj half stack! For the price it's been wonderful. My biggest gripe is the muddy bass, and I was wondering:

If I ran it into a 412 cab (say, a Carvin or Marshall since that's what I'm looking into) how would it sound? (assuming the impedances match up, of course)

I've also been thinking of getting a second VJ and experimenting with running them both simultaneously. Anyone have experience on the versatility of a two amp set up? Like, if I had one running clean and the other boosted with pedals and effects, would I actually get an interesting sound or will it just be messy because the essential character of the amp is the same?

What would happen if I ran the guitar into one VJ and then into another, then from the second into a 412?

Get an EQ pedal. MXR 12 band eq or whatever it's called. you'll be able to dial out any bass that you don't want.

Omega Amps Hot Rod Deluxe (Dumble mod)
Clean/Drive/More Drive footswitch
Mid boost/Preamp boost footswitch

I read somewhere I while back that an EQ pedal and a nicer speaker really help mids come alive. The same guy that did that also had a brightness switch installed on his, I dont know if you live somewhere around people with the know how for that but it seems like that would eliminate a lot of the unwanted bass with an EQ and a nice speaker.

As for running two at once... Try it out or something... You never know what will happen.

tubescreamer helped tame the lows on my vj.

Also look into a new speaker
EQ will do wonders for it.
