So i have a peavey transtube 110, ive had it for years and i have always played thur the clean channel with my pedals out front, however this amp has a lead channel, but i dont know how to work it.

I know how to switch to the lead channel, but i can never make it sound good, it has two knobs, a pre gain and a post gain as well as a three way switch between high gain, modern, and vintage. I have played around with it in the past but i have never been able to dial in a decent sound. I have played many guitars through it but never found any good tones.

Any suggestions?

Also what does pre gain and post gain do exactly to my sound?

I am a bit of a gain ***** and it would be nice to get a nice hot sound out of my amp

tl;dr I need some suggestions on how to set my lead channel for a good sound

Really? Wh0re gets editted out? psst

vvhore.

nope.

try this. pre-gain at about 3:00.

now is there a master volume as well as a post gain?
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

correct, the master volume is in the clean channel area but is the master for the lead as well

edit: nope i lied, no master volume

^ i thought so.

ok well pregain is preamp gain.

post gain is likely power amp gain or in this case, the gain channel volume.

try preamp gain at 3:00 pm, leave the low mid and high all at noon.

adjust volume to allowable levels with post gain.

report back.
