Not to derail thread, but has anyone owned both the V4B and Mesa Boogie Walkabout and can comment on tone and headroom? I know the V4B is all tube and the Mesa is Hybrid, but I played a Walkabout through an Ampeg 410HE at rehearsal against two other guitarists and felt I couldn't get the Walkabout to cut through, the more I raised either the gain or master, the more the tone compressed. Really wondering if a V4B woild better suit me but I know it's 100 watts. It would be run through 2 Mesa Boogie 112 powerhouse cabs. Thanks for any insight.
