Il just be using it as a solo boost pedal, does it matter much if the amp is cranked when your using it? i tried it earlier down low ish and theyr wasnt much of a difference with it on?

A pedal like the Tubescreamer is meant to push an overdriven amp harder than it's being pushed already. You won't hear miles of differance between your clean channel, and your clean with the TS on. While you're already pushing the amp, set the 'screamer to tone a bit past noon, drive near zero, and level maxed. That should give you some cutting solo boostyness over your overdriven tone.

Just fool with it until you get what works for you. Everyone has different tastes, so the only way to get the tone you want is to make it yourself. Level your output so its the same volume as your amp when the TS9 is turned on, and start playing with the Tone and Overdrive knobs.
