Q182 Posted June 13, 2020 Report Share Posted June 13, 2020 Welcome one and all to the official Ampeg VL discussion thread! For those that don't know, the VL series was made by Lee Jackson in a partnership with Ampeg, manufactured from 1991 until 1995. The most prolific model in this series is the VL-1002, which was a 100 watt two channel amp head. It was most famously used by Tom DeLonge with his Sticker Strat from 1995 until 1996, and was used to record Dude Ranch as well. This is a thread to share knowledge and settings used by others who own this amp. Here is my rig I put together in early-mid 2016: My VL-1002 is unit 0043, made in the USA, and left the assembly line in February 1995. My current settings are: CHANNEL ONE: - Pre amp: 9 o clock - Low: a hair before noon - Mid: between 3 and 4 o clock - High: 3 o clock CHANNEL TWO: - Pre amp: 1 o clock - Gain: 3 o clock - Low: a hair before 3 o clock - Mid: 3 o clock - FREQ: 4 - High: a hair before noon Both reverbs are off. Power attenuator is on, the level and presence are maxed out. This amp gets loud FAST, both with the attenuator on and off, my master volume is barely past 7 o clock. Share your settings everyone! 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
