Just got an SVT CL and 8x10...
Noticed that a lot of guys recommend maxing out Master Volume and using Gain as a volume control.
I tried it, but kind of dug the traditional approach of setting Gain to taste and using Master Volume.
Might have just been an artifact of where I was: a 16x14 rehearsal room and at a relatively low overall volume. I was just able to get a nice grindy tone that way, whereas the maxed Master Volume approach put me at a ridiculously loud volume before I liked the tone. I might have felt differently had I been in a situation where more volume would have fit.
Enough of that...I'm looking for comments/guidance/cautions on the various approaches to Gain with this amp. I've never owned an all-tube rig before so I'd really appreciate any pointers.
Also, kind of polling fellow owners to see what approach you take, and whether it varies by situation.
