I have an Ampeg SVT 3 pro, running through an 8x10. I'm playing a Spector Legend 5 custom. Gain is about 50%, Hi Low and Brt are all in, Bass at about 60%, Mids about 65%, Treble about 65%, Tube Gain at about 70%. EQ boosts low mids, slight cut on hi mids, and slight boost on treble. Bass preamp: bass and mids about 80%, treb about 70%. My problem: my amp is at an almost constant peak. the manual says the little light should only slightly flicker with a semi hard touch. i play with a fairly medium strength, but even when testing at a light touch it flickers. the light is almost all the way on the whole time in band situation. i dont know what to do about this. on 9 out of 10 days i love my tone, but the amp peaks. if i make adjustments to the amp so it doesn't peak, i completely lose my tone and all the beef behind it. any body know what is causing this? any suggestions on amp settings or anything that might help solve this? i'm going for a tone that is beefy and punchy at the same time. lots of presence so it cuts through. please try to keep this in mind if and when suggesting settings.
