I just got my first tube amp, a TSL601 and I was just wondering, what is better for playing at lower volumes?

Lower crunch/lead volume and higher master
or
High crunch/lead volume and lower master

I realise the best sound is all out loud but for when i do practice a little quieter what's going to best saturate the tubes?

I know some are probably going to suggest I use what sounds best but seriously i've had this amp for 2 days and it has so many different setups and trying to find the best is gonna take a while, this might just speed up the process

Cheers

I'll try that too REBARMAN99 I guess it already looks like it's gonna be a case of having to try heaps til i find what i like.
