I have a love/hate relationship with my Mark V 25... it has such a great first channel, but the second channel is either metal or honky Santana. I understand that the second channel isn't able to clean up well at all with it's gain structure and EQ, but I cannot for the life of me get the first channel to clean up on any of the three modes. It cleans up, but it gets extremely muddy with even the tiny change in the volume control. Which isn't great, I would love to run this amp with a bit of drive on channel 1 clean mode and just clean up with the guitar's volume when needed. Is there something I'm missing here, or is that just the nature of Mesas?
