    The strumming aren´t washed out with the SV20 series, just turn down the Volume on your guitar a little bit , then it will clean up :)

    I do, so you can.
    I will give you the setting if you want,but i'm sure you 'll find it by yourself , anyway is good to have the return policy.
    I use the classic jumpered configuration, but you could also experiment the low sensitivity input and jump in different way, the 4 holes inputs are the magic of this kind of amps. ;)

    :lol: Yeah I know what you mean! Well you could do it to give an amp a try. Buy it, play it for a few days, if you find you not getting along with it, you return it.

    If it makes you feel better,...you could buy it with every intention of keeping it! Then if it’s not for you, return it, no harm no foul,...

    Could someone tell me: when the guitar volume is backed off for a cleanish tone. Is there a volume drop. This scenario is without a PA system.

    Not significant, but sure, turning the volume down will make it a bit quiter.
    John Frusciante used a major & a jubilee rig, and his "clean" tone is far from clean. so you are definitely in the ballpark with this amp.

    I think you’re going to love it. I wish I had the gear to make a decent recording. I’m sure you don’t want a loop on my iPhone, but I’ll say that I don’t perceive the treble loss to be significant enough to bother compensating for. I mean, I like a warm tone no take this with a few grains of salt, but if there’s any loss, it’s as easy to fix as rolling the treble on my pickup up a few notches. Honestly, I look at it as the most perfect transparent overdrive. Don’t turn down your amp, turn down your speaker. Best “pedal” I own. Sounds just like a vintage Marshall.

    I have only played my SV20H in a band setting and it is awesome.Through my 2061CX cab with Scumback H-75 PVC’s.
    I would like to do some recording using the DI, do I need a dummy load?
    I want to monitor through my IEM’s

    If you do not want your cab screaming in the room, then yes.

    IIRC it was important to unplug when the amp is OFF?...
    Also in the 5w mode but I'm not sure on that.

    Good to know, thanks.
    Where are you guys getting this info? All I could find was the 3 pages that came with the amp even when googled.

    Another quick sample video... this time with my Strat, straight into the amp (just a little reverb thru the loop)
