    My first guess would be the V30s...those things are like ice picks to my ears. I can't figure out why anyone has ever used them, unless they have severe hearing loss.

        did you match the ohms on cab with the head? I kinda agree with the above on the V-30s..... I have a couple cabs with then and my Orange heads sound best through the V-30 cabs... My Marshall heads seem to like the Cabs loaded with Blue and heritage and green backs best

            Maybe turn your gain down a little.



            Roll back your tone knob when getting ready to play leads.



            Also.. PICK SOFTER when playing leads! You'll be surprised at how much that warms up the tone. If you pick too hard it can sound shrill and plinky.



            Boost your leads with a Tubescreamer and/or a mid boosted EQ pedal.

                I have an Ibanez Tubescreamer on my pedalboard. When I turn the preamp volume down on the amp with the Tubescreamer kicked in, its the same shrill sound when soloing. I dont really want to roll back the tone knob on the guitar every time I play a solo, its remembering!!

                Yes the impedance is matched with both the amp and cab.

                    If you're kicking in your Tube Screamer as a solo boost, then why not try turning down the tone on your pedal?

                        Laney Protubes tend to sound thin, and the V30s probably accentuated that. I'd say it's just a bad combination if you want to sound big, fat and warm.

                            Don't be afraid to tinker with the pickup height, either. Very easy to do/undo and the results can be dramatic. I was about to quit on my Ric until it occurred to me to raise the pickups - like a whole new guitar. It came to life, much more fat, solid tone.
