There are only 27 possible combinations. You can't compare them yourself and actually figure out which ones YOU like the best? Sorry to be a jackass, but...Wait. No. This thread deserves it.

id prob go for the high gain setting, it really depends wat ur in to
British high gain.

Didn't you say that you had a stuffed fox that you would occasionally fuck?

It's not a fox,it's a wolf.
first of all. nice pedal. i have one and its the best there is..

for a heavy dist, always use british.
for the mod, either of the two, hot and high gain.
mic, either off x or center.
then tweak.

for my lead tone, i use british, hot and center.

i never use the mesa setting, the mids are too scooped out

btw my sansamp gt2 is the version 1 model with the LED at the side, it has less gain but a tighter overall sound. I kinda use 90% gain from the pedal and 10% overdrive from my amp (old peavey rage ) to achieve a slightly grainy sounding heavy distortion
