You won't get a better answer here than you did in EG. With the added down side that this isn't an issue of technique.

*reported* for wrong forum and cross posting.

They both have their uses since they just sound different.

It's impossible to say how much gain you should use since tapping can be and is done with every tone I have ever heard.

What tone you should use depends entirely on how you want to sound and what gear you have.

ALSO this isn't a technique issue so this is the wrong forum anyway.
