Right now I'm trying to get some early black keys and white stripes sounds and I want to know if when running fuzz through an amp should I use more gain from the amp or less gain but with more volume
#2
Use moderate to light gain on your amps clean channel
that's how I run mine 3/4 to full gain on my fuzz
and volume maxed on the pedal. Knowing
what amp and fuzz pedal your using would help.
#3
When you say moderate to light gain, out of ten where exactly would you set it and for the amp I have a Fender Mustang 3 modeling amp and for guitar a strat
#4
Put your gain around 3 to 4 on whatever clean
model you like on your amp. Adjust the volume
of the amp to however loud you want to play.
Your fuzz pedal run the gain 3/4 to full. Adjust
the volume on it to taste.

Modelling amps usually don't take pedals very well, and the Fender Mustang III is no exception.

You're better off using the onboard Big Fuzz stompbox model than using a fuzz pedal in front of it, IMHO.

So when using the on board, would the same ideas regarding fuzz pedals apply or will it be somewhat different

Pretty much the same principle applies.
Try starting with a Deluxe or Twin amp model with some gain, then use the Big Fuzz stompbox model to add gain to your taste.
