Just because I can

Anyways, who uses volume knobs, and who uses their clean channels? Just curious.

i use the clean channel cause its a pain in the backside trying to do vocals while finding that nice clean spot in bewtween all the dist.
so doing a lil' bit of highland dancing is easier for my brain

I use both. The clean channel is good for some things, volume knob is good for others.

I use both...when I'm playing through my metal rig, I use the clean channel because turning down the volume knob doesn't do much to 'clean it up'

but my smaller rig that I use for everything else, I use my volume knob quite a bit (mainly because its a single channel amp )

I like to turn the knob down most of the time,I like the mix between the dist and clean,if i go clean i prefer it being one of those acoustic sounding clean.

Yeah... No matter how much you roll down your volume knob you still won't get those chiming bell-like cleans that you need sometimes.

Come to think of it, i actually use the clean channel, volume knob, AND volume pedal.

Clean channel with overdrive and distortion pedal. I use the volume on my guitar when I don't want to turn off the pedal.

Mostly clean channel - a distortion channel backed off rarely sounds all that clean, despite everyone saying that X "cleans up well" or whatever.

I would use a clean channel if I had one, but I don't so I use my volume knob. I find that if I set my amp to be clean, it sounds slightly better than the volume knob but that may be because the electronics in my squier suck.

I like my cleans with some grit to them. Just a little bit of dirt. My amp doesn't lose much dynamics, either

It's a Fender Suepr 60. Made late 80's and early 90's. The clean channel is the typical Fender, albeit a bit bassier, but the OD channel was made by Rivera.

Yes, that Rivera

All tube. I have some clips in my profile. The top two.

I don't really use the volume to get a clean sound so much as a less distorted sound. It's an interesting texture. Very dynamic when you play spacey kind of delay stuff over a keyboard pad texture. Then the drums come crashing in and you roll up the sucker and roar!!!!!!

I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
