Hey guys, just thought I would ask this question that really I have been dealing with for a really long time. My Shenandoah acoustic amp has a pre amp volume control as well as effects volume control. I have read the manual numerous times to ensure that I didn't miss something. Anyway I am kind of unsure where is the best place to set the pre amp volume or even what it does really. With an electric obviously you can push the amp and get distorted tones. So, maybe if someone on here has a similar amp you could shed some light on these controls for me and help me out.

By the way with the effects level I don't really see the purpose since there is a level for the effects next to the effect selector. And I have experimented with the amp but I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something.

Thanks in advance
