I'm just looking for some idea's because I'm looking for a good Gain number so it can pick up faster. Currently on 5 or 4, I'm guessing most people have it out of 10. thank you
LOL

Usually put mine at around 7 or so to keep it pretty clear while still getting pretty nasty..... But that's just on my amp, it will vary depending on the amp though...

either 5 or 8 when I had a distortion pedal now I have a digitech rp250 so not sure really whatever level the Hair Day setting is
#10
One channel i keep it on 8, the extra gain channel i have on 10, but I rarely use that channel.

I know 8 may seem high, but i like to have a tightness to my sound, if its not around that high it sounds a bit muddy sometimes.

I usually have mine around 4, if I'm playing with distortion. Any more, and it gets too noisy (as in with interference). I really should shield my guitar.
#12
i have my gain on the clean chan. of my amp at about 12 oclock and the gain on my dist pedal at about like 4oclock, somehting like that.

Erm...that's not quite how it works...

Needless to say, mine varies for what I'm playing, and what I have the master volume of my main amp set at.

Is that on your AT-212? That's crazy man, I find that it gets muddier after 7 or 8 on mine... Could just be the individual amp characteristics and the guitars used as well though I suppose..

My amp is a VJ so there's only one knob - volume.

On my DS-1... I constantly change it, sometimes I have it at max and turn the level down, sometimes I have it at 0 or 1 and have the level cranked. The tone knob I do at about 2:00 for my tele and more like 3:00 or 4:00 Meat, which is a mahogany guitar and thus a bit darker and chunkier(hence the name Meat.)

well i mean it seems to get more sensitive as going higher in gain but that static noise comes out

It really depends on what I'm playing, 4-6 blues, 8 for metal, 10 for METAL.

on my Valvetronix I use the UK Modern channel and usually keep it at around 6 or 7 (or where those numbers would be if it had numbers).
#23
1. Single coil tap on the neck pickup. It get's me a slight hint of fuzz (due to the 12ax7 army in my amp) and gives me a great muddy punch. I love proto-Funk.

yeah it is. I have a X2N so its like you have to turn the gain on high to get it to "crunch" which is what I like.

My amp is weird (Its a SS Spider... Saving for a JCM800!!), and I use a Line 6 Floor Pod (It works for me, so I use it and one of the distortions its got on it), so on the Pedal its set at around 8, but on a different amp it probably would be like 6.

I also use lighter distortion that is probably around 3-4 on a different amp. And a nice clean tone!
#28
It changes, usually about 7, though sometimes i'll put it to 10. It always sounds crap anyway though.

10 on my Roctron Utopia. For some reason it sounds really tight and responsive at any gain. I do play it along with drummers and bassists and the tone stays the same throughout different volume levels.

On my amp i have it at about 7 usually.. It depends on the guitar, as single coils will drive it less. I mainly use the clean channel though.

11.
Meaning 10.
It's on the "lo" output jack, on the "hi" one it just sounds sterile with that much gain.

However it goes to aroun 5 a lot too, sometimes around 8 if I'm looking for a crunch.
#40
i keep mine bertween 8-10 on my crate head, because the head was made more for low gain styles so requires a lil more balls to get a heavy gain out of it. on my kustom 12 gauge i put it at about 5-6 plenty of dist for practice in my room. and my marshall mg, i try not to go to the dist channel because it sounds like crap but when i did i put it at like 4
