1. It's only got four knobs, surely you can handle twisting them around a bit
2. Your amp isn't helping
3. Use your strat, neck pickup, tone down a little. Keep the amp very clean, EQ it flat. Turn the TS9 volume up to 3 o'clock, + setting, just enough treble to keep it from getting muddy. Set the gain a little lower than you think you need it, then turn up the amp's treble and gain a little bit.
