          I only use OD pedals to boost leads and nothing (well maybe something) can beat the BB preamp for that purpose.

              seriously, i mean.... I understand that these things are subjective but I have no idea what you're talking about. I think the VH100R is plenty mean.




              Maybe I haven't found those EQ settings? There is a "roundness" to everything that I am hearing. You also have to remember I am a 5150 fanboy. THAT is what I would call a "mean" tone. The VH is an amp that inspires a lot of adjective throwing. Open, round, organic; all these terms are cliches, but they all apply to the VH; cliche or not. A 5150 is fairly one-dimensional. You can do alot of things with it, but it is at it's best being vicious. No more, no less.



              Obviously, a metal zone won't sound as good as channel B for most things. I wasn't necessarily suggesting that lol; I was moreso suggesting that the amp itself is a good platform across the board. I think it would make a lot of cheaper gear sound good, including a metal zone. I could also be crazy, who knows

                  with your further clarification and your frame of reference, I can understand why you would say that now. that having been said, my amp tech's favorite amp of all time is the earliest 5150 and he's got a few mods that make it much less one dimensional.

                      ...and that is why I am going back and forth with it Mike. I am so used to the razor sharp chug of a 5150 that I honestly don't know how to deal with other amps > My relationship with my VH is still a work in progress

                              It's a badass amp! He did an amazing job representing that amp in that clip! New vh100r owners need to spend a bit of time tweaking it to really get the feel how the amp functions in a live situation unless you've owned laney amps in the past. The key is in a "band" setting.



                              Some owners will never know just how good this amp can sound without stretching its legs.



                              It's good you already know how this amp reacts to power tubes. When laney decided to ship these amps with the cheap Chinese brands...it really misrepresented of what the vh100r sounded like.



                              I used cl80, gt75, vet 30 in the past, but my favorite is the v30/ et65 combo.



                              The bad thing about sed is that they're freaking expensive now.





                              You'll definitely have balls of fun taking this amp for rehearsals and gigs! It's never let me down in 12 years!




                              This. I have always wanted a VH100R but 100W is far too powerful for my band/gigging small gigs atm to use at its full potential.
