Two weeks ago I scored a new old stock DV Mark Jazz 212. I'm usually partial to valve amps but I thought I'd experiment with this solid state unit. The main reason I got it, other than the reasonable price, is it's much lighter to carry around than my much loved Matchless Lightning Reverb 112. Anyway, after some time fiddling with the amp settings and my various pedals, I found a good and simple combination for a variety of sounds, from clean jazz to gritty blues to overdriven rock. I just use my (valve) Tonebone Radial Trimode in front of the DV, which gives me three channels - one is the true bypass the other two are overdriven and equalised to different extents. Amp settings : reverb at 2 o'clock, Bass at 2, Mid at 4 and High at 5. Works a treat with my H530 on all pickup combos. I've now got to find the right settings for my other guitars.. work for another day.
