Hey just got a Micro Amp pedal today and have been playing around with it for a bit. I've noticed that it boosts the clean channel WAY more than the gain channel. Is there a way to keep the amount of boost fairly equal between the two channels? Or is can I at least set it up so that it really boosts the volume on just the gain channel? I'm trying to get a nice distorted sound at a lower volume and then have this baby to stomp on and really make her rip!

Suggestions?
the first step to failure is trying.

not really, no. it just boosts your signal. if you're running into an amp set clean and way below the clipping threshold, as you've found, it'll just boost the volume a ton. if you're running into an overdriven amp that's already saturated (or nearly saturated) then it's going to boost the amount of distortion, not volume.

if you want to boost the volume of both evenly, you could try putting it into your fx loop. that should boost the volume whether the amp is set clean or distorted (assuming you're using preamp distortion at not-cranked volume levels). but if you want to boost both clean and od channels by the same amount of volume and distortion you might be out of luck.
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.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

It has to be in the loop to work as a volume boost. Otherwise you're just kicking the shit out of your preamp (which, as you've found, doesn't do anything to boost volume with distortion).
Spin 'round carousel when your horse isn't screwed in.
