I just got my new Ampeg SVT-4Pro today! I'm really excited about the prospect of seeing what this baby can do. My question is, I come from using an SWR SM-500, on that amp, I would set the gain by striking my loudest notes on the bass, and turning the gain knob until the peak light would blink occasionally. I would then set my master knob to get the appropriate volume. The gain was usually set around 9 o'clock. The Ampeg seems to require a higher gain setting, say almost 11 o'clock, before the volume can be set at an appropriate level. Doing this causes the peak light to stay lit for brief periods of time during the lowest notes, not just a brief blink. The sound doesn't seem to be distorting though, so I'm not sure this isn't normal for this amplifier. So, you Ampeg users, where do you set your gain?
