    I live in Hong Kong and it's very hard to get nice amps in here. I'm now overwhelmed. Thanks Nick!

    Tata! Sig X and Orange 412:yesway::yesway::yesway:

    Amazing amp. Super versatile. Clear and articulate. Damn Loud:nuts:.
    I need to engage the effect loop as attenuator...:wallbash:
    However I found this combo make too much highs, even using a RG3120, a mahogany body guitar...

    the cab is the problem, Fryette amps work best with fryette cabs. Match the two and you can't do much better

    Nice! Fryettes rock. Talk to Nick and I'm sure he can hook you up with some settings to mitigate the highs.

    Thx!!!
    Not sure which Nick is, but he's the member here...
    Changing cab is an option, but shipping a 412 cab from US/UK to HK is damn expensive, due to the size
    What do you guys think if I change the speakers to P50E? I think the construction of Orange cab is good enough

    VHT/Fryette cabinets are front-loaded.

    Welcome to the VHT Family!!!! I would say get the P50E, there was a few sets on ebay recently. And those V30 will probably fund the P50's.

    Be sure to sign up at vhtusers.com/forum they are great if you have any questions at all.

    I know this is gonna sound completely insane, but trust me on this...try turning the Treble knob all the way down. That's something Nick showed me the first time we tried out the Sig:X in his band's practice space, and I've done it on my Deliverance ever since.

    Just try it. Put the Presence at around the same spot as the Mids, also.

    I've never played the sigx or the deliverance. But I have played through a CL and there is already a lot of top end on that amp that I had to turn down. Mess around with the mids and presence more. An excellent advice.

    I've posted the question in VHTusers, and the guy from Fryette explained that my pups may make the tone bright/trebly. I try to use another and try the amp again~

    Finally I can get good tones from my Sig X. I turn off the presense of clean channel and roll off a little bit of treble and mid.
    The lead channel is addictive, u can't get any bad tone from this amazing amp
