    About the same..

    Tone: 8 o'clock
    Volume: 1:30ish
    Sustian is usually around 1:30, as well..
     
  3. Well, mine's not a Russian, but here they are anyway;

    Volume - 7 or so
    Tone - 4 or 6
    Sustain - about 7 or 8

    Those are of course general. I'm not above turning the tone to extremes, and reducing the sustain to much lower levels.

    Tone: 9-9:30 - trying to keep some bottom end with having some good fuzz
    Sustain: 12:12:30 - anything much higher is too over the top to be useful for me
    Volume: Depends on how loud my main volume is at the time
     
  6. i am really confused, how can a dial be at 9.30??? anyways i use, tone, 7pm (full bass) , sustain on 4pm (full), and then the volume usually on about a quater to stay in line with the clean sound. perfect for some Muse if anyone is into them. Altho on muse recordings, three big muffs were used??? crazy

    It's a rough estimate as it isn't completely straight, it's slightly above having the knob flat which would be close tov between 9 O'Clock and 10

    Tone- 8:30
    Volume- just short of 12:00
    Sustain- depending on what I'm going for its either at 8:00 or 12:00
