So i just recently picked up a valveking 100 but i am looking for a more heavier/punchier sound from it, the lead channel is good but i just want a little more.

So here are some of my questions as i am fairly new to pedals

Ive watched a lot of review videos on overdrive pedals but one question i have is do you use the pedal on your clean channel or your lead channel?

Also would it be better to turn the volume up on the amp and turn the output volume on the pedal and use that as a volume control or crank the output on the pedal and turn down the amp volume?

I think you may have lost your way. You might do better in the Gear & Accessories forum.


1. That's entirely up to you.

2. I would generally maximise the signal going into the amp and use the amp to set the final volume.
