    How do you get an overdrive sound out of the SVT2?

    I always get the best SVT overdrive with the master all the way up and then use the gain to set the volume.

    Yes, it sounds backwards, but with tube heads, this is just what I like. YMMV, as always.
  5. there isnt a gain control on the SVT II

    what i do is use the EQ and have the mids up full with the ultra high on :)
