Solo boost db?....

Hey forumies
Can anyone tell me how much you should boost a solo by decibel wise???
I run a Rivera KR7 and run it through a gmajor2 and I crank up the output db for solo boosts, at the moment it's set at a 3db boost but when we play live I deafen the band but when we in the jam room it sounds perfect......
Anyone gots the experiences with this?...
Thanks y'all!!!

Depends how loud everyone else is. Do you not get a soundcheck before you perform? It's probably a case of experimentation. There's no real standard setting for a boost.

i actually run a 2 channel OD and a 2 channel boost because it is hard to tell what will work. the first channel on either one is set up for 'normal' boosting, but if i need an extra kick in the pants then i'll activate the second channel on either one.

as Eppicurt said, there are no hard rules. you gotta role with it.

The DB on boosts and pedals means shit. Getting 30 db before a guitar's signal hits the amp is simple. Remember, 30 db is 1000 times as loud as 0 db, but if you start with a mouse fart and multiply it by 1000 you still don't have shit.

Well if cutting through is your problem try boosting your mids and treble that's what worked for me.

Hey what now? His problem is that his lead sound is quieter in the jam room than on stage. That's room acoustics.
