I just got my DT25 combo yesterday. I love the clarity and feel of this amp. The one thing I noticed was it seemed not to have as much gain as I expected. I could add a pedal in front of it as it responsed wonderfully. I was using a Epi LP that doesn't have great pickups thought. I set my channel volume up pretty high and the master turned down a lot. If i kicked it into low volume mode I had all the gain I wanted.
So my question is for gain is better to turn up the master a ways and then use the channel volume to acceptable levels or the opposite? I want to kick the tubes into a bit of drive for some blues grit sounds and to drive the IV (Boogie) setting into a heavy gain.
