Re: Distortion after 1/4 volume

it should be Very clean at 3-4 (and very loud).

what era v4 do you have?   

if you have a mixer or something,  try plugging the preamp out into it,  and seeing what it sounds like.  also try plugging you guitar into the mixer, and then the output of the mixer in to the power amp input.   
that will help us locate where the problem is.

have you had your V4 serviced before?

Re: Distortion after 1/4 volume

let me know how it goes.  if we can isolate where the problem is occurring,  we can really start figuring this out. 
let me know how the experiment with the mixer goes.
