    Evening all! Just wondering if anyone has any advice on how to get the best out of this amp using a Les Paul and boss me50 running straight through the input. Any suggestions welcome using this equipment maybe a different way also advice on controll settings etc.
    Fairly new to Marshall’s.
    Tia,

    Try hi gain, bass 10, mid 5, treble 3, play at 3-4 guitar volume and crank up when needed.

    You'll get all sorts of results...experiment.....mine is very directional, so affected by room played in and where you stand.

    Welcome to the forum, as to the OP’s question, you really need to experiment a bit with your amp, I only have experience with the AVT50H, and the way I used to run it is volume on 10, and use the gain for your level, the rest of your eq to taste, myself liked the mids and treble up quite high, bass at 5 on the dial, of course ymmv! Cheers Mitch
