I have both. Which I prefer depends on context. Mainly guitar and band.
I prefer Hagen for classic rock tones and 'modern' heavy tones. Drop tuned to B or 7 string. It has more saturation on tap and the mids cut differently.
I prefer vh4 for more tool-ish type tones. Drop D, Db : Modern Metallica etc.
Both have good cleans but slight edge to Hagen for me.
Ch2 is a toss up. Vh4 blues edge Hagen for classic rock.
Ch4 I dont use much but both are great. Maybe edge to Hagen for me.
Best advice? Listen to videos and see which comes closer to what you want to hear. I've had tons of trials to see which I like better in given situations. Im starting a new project and going through the process all over again.
Best of luck, but you don't need it. They're both truly amazing amps.
