Just got this amp and its running through 2 x G12-65 speakers mounted in an open cab. Any recommended settings and tubes to improve the tone? I find it abit lacking in the gain department and its not as crunchy as I expected it to be.

HI
   the settings I use are presence 4-5 bass 9, mid 7, treble 4, output master 10, lead master 3-4 , input gain 4 for humbucker or 6-7 for single coil
if you check the prevoius thread about 2550 mine is the last clip you will hear those settings . ps reverb or delay in loop greately helps this amp shine also g12m or EVM 12Ls are good. . it will take time to get used to the sound of this amp. good luck.
Oh and jj tubes all the way!!

When you crank up the output master and control the playing volume through the lead master, are you overdriving the power tubes or the preamp tubes? I was doing it the other way previously that is cranking up the lead volume and controlling the playing volume through the output master. Maybe that's why it didn't sounded good?
