Well set the channel and gain to 5 each. Then after that set the master at an appropriate volume. After that adjust the gain until it's good, match the channel volumes with eachother (so the volume is about the same on each channel) and set the master at the right level.

Just wondering if you can do the same on a single channel amp to get a decent sound of it a low volume?
Marshall jcm 800 4104 to be precise.
Just sounds fuzzy with the pre-amp set and the master volume down.

That's just the way tube amps sound when you play them at low volumes. Preamp gain is fizzy by nature. What you really ought to be doing is turning the master to 10 and dealing with the volume.

Al's right with that, my DSL itself can sound fizzy at low volumes, but when my parents are out I just take my DSL into the middle of the house and crank it, and there lies clarity and no fizziness.

So ryphe, if you fine-tweak your channel volume when you have the master set how you want then you can get some alright sounds, and something with isn't too fizzy. That's what I do with my DSL, and I'm guessing it would work with other amps.
