My question is what is the rule of thumb for what volume you should set your amp at when hooking it up to an attenuator to get its full tonal capacity...by your opinion. although its probly 50% - 75% id say
Guitars:
2009 Fender 72 Deluxe Telecaster
Yamaha F-130 Acoustic
Amps:
Blackstar HT5
Effects:
MXR Micro Chorus
R3FX Dual Resistafier

tube amps sound best cranked, which meens full volume on the amp basically, then use the attentuator to bring the volume down, so that the tubes are being pushed to the limit, but you arent shaking your house to its foudations

It depends on the amp. Some amps sound good cranked to ****, others sound their best at 8 or even 6.

Yeah, I think my Valveking really shines when it gets to about 7 or 8, at full volume it starts to sound kind of thin.

Every amp is different, you'll have to crank it up a bit but you might like the volume lower or higher, just experiment with it.

My Rocker sounds it's best at around 6-7 TBH...After that you're just adding gain, not harmonics.
