    Hey! I recently got a hold of a late 70s V4B, and am working out a tone. But I was wondering if fellow V4B owners would share their settings. I like to see how others push their tone (live or for recording). I'm playing a fender p bass deluxe, and have a gk backline 4x10 and a swr wm's 1x15. So far I've had the lows and highs boosted, and have been nudging the mids up, but haven't found a nice balance yet -- I'm still losing my G string in the noise at times. I'm absolutely new to tube amps, so it's a lot of experimenting right now...

    Thanks folks!
