OP- what modes are you digging? I started off obsessed with Tweed, but over time I realized I got way more out of the amp if I used Normal for cleans and Hi 1 for gain. I set Hi1 gain pretty low, like around 10 o'clock. This has been working great for me (I use various pedals for boost and additional overdrive). Tweed mode is fantastic if I feel like using the amp as a single channel with pedals. I haven't been able to get a sound I like much out of the Top Boost mode, but it is mainly because I am not a cranked Vox kind of guy- the tones are quality, just don't work for what I do right now. Hi 2 is something I have barely messed with because I LOVE Hi 1 so much. It seems a little darker than Hi 1.
