Whoops, missed that part. There are versions that have more gain on tap; CM-2 and Green Rhino chief among them. From what I get/read, the idea with boosting is that you want to lay off the drive knob...

Pre-gain is distortion, post gain is just more volume (if I remember my vypr 15 correctly). So work with your pre-gain more.
