So, my general setup is running my cheap Ibanez Gio through a digitech RP350 multi-effects pedal and finally into my Peavey Bandit 112 combo.

Now, here's the issue at hand: My amp has a really cool lead setting that sounds like exactly what I wanted with high gain, however, there is no volume knob for the lead and therefore, the only way to get the sound I like is to have the gain WAY up.

This poses an issue for various venues that do not require, nor desire such a loud setting.

Because of this, I've been playing on the clean amp setting while using a rectifier effect on my pedal (Which kind of annoys me, because I bought the amp to use the lead setting).

Suggestions?

Thanks!

I used to have a Bandit 112, is it not a two channel combo, each with their own volume control?

Yeah, it is two channel. However, the lead setting (at least on mine) trades a volume control for a pre-gain and post-gain control.

I have the same amp. Clean channel has volume, lead channel has post gain which is basically the same thing.

By the way, if the amp is too loud, just use the switch on the back to set 25 or 50W mode.

pregain is the gain, post gain is the volume

there's a volume knob on your guitar...

usually the one closest to the strings.

Mine's kind of a POS, so the volume is, pretty much, on or off.

What this guy said.
When you crank the post-gain aka volume, you will experience power tube distortion, which is probably what makes your sound better in your ears.

Kinda hard To get power tube distortion in an amp without tubes.
Pregain is distortion, post gain is channel volume.
too loud? Turn the post gain down.

First time I've ever heard a Bandit described as perfect - at any volume.

Well, their distortion sounds crap too. If your aim is to sound like crap then sure, it's a great amp.
