hey robert 1950....
I have been using the 5 watt setting primarily because i play in a small space..
and have been experimenting with the settings listed in the manual...
I especially like the purr and grind settings
I have been able to get some great sustain...with the gain settings high thru the drive channel..
and the master volume and outputs turned down

I have also been using a wah pedal...which compresses the sound as well a bit
and get some searing sustain...

the clean channel is also full of tone in the 5 watt position...
and sparkling clean....

I have been trying to keep in to one setting for each session...so I figure in the guitars personal sound and tweek it from there...

as far as volume...it is very loud...and I have been using it barely above the nine oclock position,,,,for most of my practices so far...

when the house is empty and the neighbors at work I will be checking the sweet spot for sure.....

keep on jammin

that's basically what I gave my mom for mother's day, except replace the beer with a nice bottle of shiraz. and chocolate, and flowers...

Welcome to the forums auger,:wave: that's a nice amp you got yourself there, congrats:food-smiley-004:

I didn't get anything for father's day, probably a good thing, cuz I'd have to have kids to give me something... I gave my dad a new putter, a golf shirt, a golf glove and a 12 pack of balls:D
