    I also don't really use distortion pedals. I have a Boss SD-2 which is quite nice, but I really only set it for a low-gain 'on the edge' tone, into the clean channel. But maybe I should just use the boost on the clean channel... another thing to try!

    One thing I do wish is that the less/more switches were switchable from the foot controller. If it were, you'd have literally tons more tones at your disposal.

    I agree, I was kind of afraid with all the options it'd be a jack of all trades type amp but took the risk anyways. It's seriously way more versatile than any clip or review gives it credit for.

    The more/less thing would be nice, but I don't care too much. I'll just use the volume control.

    Funny you bring that up, I get a little bit of that going on where the bass is a little too thick to be extremely tight [it's tight, just not tight enough]. Then I have it a tad loose without the wylde od, or tight and sharper with it on.

    Wouldn't try a boost pedal in the loop... Also, the ZW OD isn't set to distort or anything, just adds a little grit, colors the mids a little, and tightens the low end.

    Using the three channels and 4 pedals I have, I can cover modern tones all the way to the 50s.

    EDIT: Ugh, yesterday, it seemed like none of my settings posts were showing up, now all three of them do. -.-

    Anyways, I may try the Mesa C90 speaker since someone said it was similar to a P50E and it's available in 8ohms.

    You're not going crazy. I went and found your settings chart and fixed the post for you.

    The C90 is parbably a little darker, tighter on the bottom (especially if installed in our cab)and no doubt cleaner (won't break up as easily). It's probably closer to a Classic 80 than the P50.

    This didn't really help much. Well, it helped my GAS skyrocket, but that's about it... But it has me wondering why Mesa even bothers with those -mumbles- V30s...

    I'm currently using Celestion Vintage Century's - they're Neodymium mags, they sound sort of like a V30. I've never tried a Fryette cab, would mean a trip to Sheffield in the North of England, which I just cannot do.

    I have a Zilla cab, and have thought about replacing the top-left and bottom-right speakers for something else, so I can have a cross pattern and a range of tones when recording. Maybe the C90's are worth a look?

    I love V30's with my Sig. They give me punch, great mids, great cut through and clarity. Although I still would like to try a Fryette cab with the P50's.
