          Most crazy over-compressed amp ever.
          It makes a brickwall limiter look dynamic.




          Cool tones, just too compressed for my tastes.

            The reviews are definitely mixed on this amp . Some folks say its the best amp in the world and others cant stand it.

              Channels 3 and 4 are very compressed, I wouldnt use them for much other than hi-gain leads, but channel 2 has a gorgeous crunch and channel 1 has an almost piano like clean, I really like that amp.

                Of all the amps I have played there have only been a couple I couldn't stand.
                Framus cobra and dragon, jvm, and vh4.

                  What about it couldnt you stand? I didnt like the Framus stuff at all either , so maybe our tastes are similar

                    It didn't sound similar to the framus at all. Framus cobra has this subwoofer bass and sounds really brittle to me, and the dragon is a big dark mess.
                    The vh4 is really cutting, and has zero dynamics on its gain channels. It is obscenely compressed, in a way that you cannot dial out. It sounds nasally to me, and it weighs a ****************ing ****************load.

                      It was that Crate cab that it was on at GC (if you played it in the GC in Hollyweird). It is still compressed as hell and I am not a huge fan after playing one recently, but then again there are some killer tones to be had in it. IDK, I like my Herbert and was considering getting a VH4 to try but that compression makes me step away.

                        In my experience, if you really like the VH4 tone, but don't like the compression, the closest amp I've heard is a Fortin Bones. It gets the tightness and that crazy hi-fi density to the gain, but responds much more dynamically to your pick attack than a VH4. You lose a lot of flexibility, though.

                          Sounds like my old JSX.

                              That's an amp that's never done it for me in terms of the clips I've heard. Then again, I don't really play much metal these days, so I like loose, open amps.
