    I play a 72' Eb-3 (tuned down to drop C) through a Sovtek Mig100 Bassov Blues amp. All that bass comes out of my Ampeg 8x10 cab. My amp has two inputs, a low gain and a high gain. However, when I plug into the low gain jack I get the clean deep bass sound but at 1/4 the volume. Even with both volume knobs (labeld "volume" and "master") cranked its just not loud at all. I've been having to resort to playing through the high gain input and tossing my distortion pedal aside. The range in volume is fine though the high gain input by the way. My ideal situation would be playing through a clean low gain input and using my Big Muff when I need some dirt. Why does my amp do this? Is it broken or is that just how this amp works? : hardly any volume though the low gain input. Any amp gurus out there? I could use the help

    Thanks
