I try to use the SS channel primarily actually. and I wanna use the 6 band as a lead / rhythm boost. but I wanna be satisfied before i click it on for at least a good rhythm tone. think Thrash rhythm. all my other amps (every single one of them) has either a contour, or a midsweep, mid freq knob, and its the most useful knob. the V2 doesnt have it. Id really really wanna get one put in. and id wanna get my warhead modded with the later series sustain/gain boost.
