what equipment are you using and what style(s) of music are you playing?

just for starters, if you're just playing at fairly low volume, try gain-6to7 bass-8 mid-4 treble-7

when you get a better amp and your playing loud, you dont want the bass at 10 lol but at low volumes i always keep mine up there. if you have 2 pups, try each one and both together, and maybe cut it back on the tone pot(s) just a little.

Get two amps run your guitar into both of them set one to clean and the other on to distorted.

(i thought hot strings would make me finger faster.)
so i tried to set my strings on fire by putting a lighter on the high e string n it cut it so wtf??!!? i passed the lighter rrly slowly by it for less then a sec n then it snapped...
No settings thread sorry, best advice im going to say is to roll the volume down on your guitar.
