    here's what my settings at
    level-whatever you play
    high eq-halfway
    low eq-full
    Overdrive-full
    gain-quarter full

    This is just what I like but mess around and find one you like
     
  3. My ODB-3 settings :

    Level = 11 o' clock
    Low EQ = 2 o' clock
    High EQ = 10 o' clock
    Balance = 9 o' clock
    Gain = 11 o' clock

    I tend to keep my hands off the EQ as much as i can, because the sounds has to pass thru the Amp's EQ's on it's way to the speakers, and if you do EQ on the pedal too much, it sounds like poo.. :(

    "yeah, but this one goes to eleven"

    ;)
     

  5. by 11 o' clock we mean that the knob is located so that the marking points to 11 o' clock, like analogue clock etc ?
