    6 knobs, not much to do here.
    It's a pretty simple unit.
    It also responds very differently depending on the instrument.
    So really, it's difficult to make presets.

    i usually have ALL the knobs at 12:00

    i vary the pressence from gig to gig and the master volume (first knob to the left, i forgot its actual name) is cranked

    i guess i can very for each situation, but my above description is where i start and very close to where i stay

    bass: 11
    drive: 1.30

    One thing it took me a while to learn is that sometimes to get a good sound with the presence you need to turn the treble down a bit. I go for a just starting to break up sound when i use my sans amp. I keep the level control at unity (meaning the volume is the same with the pedal on or off), the treble at about 11 o'clock, the bass somewhere between 11 and 1 o'clock, the drive at just where it starts to distort, the presence at about 12 o'clock, and the blend control somewhere between 12 o'clock and fully "wet" (all the way up) depending upon the song and sound i'm after.
    To warm up a SWR amp i keep the the treble and bass at 12, adjust the presence to taste, put the blend at 12, and set the drive under distortion levels. This does wonders for the soemwhat "sterile" swr tone if i'm lookin gfor a more traditional tone.
