Hey guys I have a question. I don't have a guitar or amp yet, but I would like to point of having volume on the guitar and volume on the amp. What is the point? Do they sound different? If you turn the volume on the guitar up, but keep the amp volume low, will it sound the same as if you keep the guitar volume down and turn the amp volume up? Thanks.

they sound different, plus having one on your guitar means you can change it on the fly.

With some guitars, unless you do a capacitor modification to the guitar's volume control, you also lose treble as you turn down the volume. But having a volume control separate from the amp does help (either on the guitar or as a separate pedal), especially with volume differences between leads and rhythm playing, or if you want your amp to "break up," you can roll back the guitar volume and it will play clean. This is especially helpful for guys who like light overdrive or grit rather than full-on distortion.

The guitar volume control isn't as much of a volume control as it is a gain knob, unless you turn it way down. In between about 10-4 just lowers the gain and not really the volume.

Just kidding. You're a fucking retard.

+1. Its lowers the signal volume going to the amp, thus lower the gain as weel where as a master volume control lowers the volume going to the power amp.

put your amp volume low and your guitar volume high and then do the opposite...notice the difference

how is that different from an amp volume knob?

also, that'll only happen depending on how your amp is set up. if the amp is set up with a clean tone, that's not going to happen.
