  • so I got the VH100R but

    .. there are some problems... first off the reverb doesn't work, I checked the wires, changed all pre amp tubes, nothing. I still don't have the footswitch, does this amp needs the footswitch to be plugged in for the reverb to work?



    I also think there is an issue with the drive channel volume, the clean channel is much louder.



    Man I really want this to work, the amp does sound awesome, with these 2 issues aside.

        Check the reverb level is turned up on the front panel.

        The clean channel is quite a bit louder , though it depends on how u set your gain level on the drive channel.

        R u talking clean with drive enabled or the dirt chanel with drive engaged ..etc etc.

          yeah but I would like to hear from a VH100R user if the reverb is supposed to work without it

            This was a pretty common complaint I got from people who bought VH100R's from me. To be fair , I only sold maybe 6 or 8 total , but it seemed like that was just the way this amp was made.

              I've not fiddled on one in a while but I believe the reverb should work without the switch being connected. I'll go and look through the schematic for you....

                I for you Billy!!! It's really gotta sting for the amp to not arrive tip-top. And WTF? Where's that footswitch it was supposed to have?



                Either way, I'm glad to hear it sounds really good still. It will all get figured/sorted out.

                  Just checking , sometimes u can overlook the little things!

                  Not sure if the footswitch is needed as i always had it plugged in .

                  Used it also with the gsp + GC2 floorboard and just used the level contol on the front pannel, so my guess is

                  probably doesn't matter if footswitch is used or not.

                    ok so I am not concerned about the volume thing anymore.. the volume is definitely there it's just a more gradual taper than the GH, which goes into "holy ****************" territory real quick.. this amp actually has a nice taper and really gets loud with the volume around noon. No problem.



                    I need to figure out the reverb issue though

                      How's the clean channel and its boost? Is it really good? Also, have you had enough time to hear how different the GH/VH gain is?

                        I hardly ever played withe the drive volume above 2 and the clean rarely got above 1...

                        ... they are loud ****************ers.

                          The clean channel is awesome.. I havent tried the boost yet. The gain is tighter and more modern than the GH, not bad at all, but definitely a different flavor, more like a cross between the GH and a 5150...

                            I used the boosted clean as a seperate drive channel.

                            But it covers a lot of ground.

                            The amp itself can cover alot of styles thats for sure.

                              Good, this justifies me keeping the GH50L. Logic dictates that I need both gain tones at my disposal
