I picked up one of these amps for practice and like a lot of the tones. I use a Fender Deluxe Strat with Samarium Cobalt pups and Carvin DC127C. The cleans sounds are great on this little amp, but the distorted tones don't have much beef on the bottom. I am getting some sort of rattling sound too when I crank up. I haven't torn into it yet to see if anything is rattling around. Anyone else experiencing this with the VT40+? I realize the 10"speaker isn't going to give huge bass, but it could be tighter instead of farty and flubby. It would be nice if we could post audio samples of what we are hearing on this forum.
