Anyway, I'm looking for the preferred SMS settings.

Anyone else?

same as others for me with eq, but I run out of mine into a Morley ABY mixer, then to mobius> mx200> looper> amp to get stereo from mobius & after it... so my gain is no more than 10-11 oclock & my rear pad knob setting must be no higher than 9 o'clock or I clip.

Front Volume 10:00-11:00
Bass off
Mid 10:00
Treble all the way up
Reverb 11:00
The volume on the rear of the SMS I turn up all the way, then back it off just a little...maybe 2-5% .
Guitar volume I back off considerably, and MC40 volume like the rear of the SMS...almost all the way up.

For Jerry tones... treble 10, mids 5, bass 1 to off. The tone controls are really nice sounding in any position. For a Metheny-esque jazz tone, treble 6-7, mids 6-7, bass 3 works. All 3 set to noon sound good. I haven't found any position that doesn't sound good.

This is Brad's explanation of the output pad knob. I keep mine around 10-11 o'clock.

"Right next to the output jack on the rear of the preamp is the "pad" knob. By the nature of this preamp circuit, the output level can be extremely hot. This knob helps to pad down the output signal level to be more usable in most situations. Initially try your preamp with the front panel "Gain" knob set around noon to 1 o'clock. Then use the rear "pad" knob to adjust the final output level to best match your setup. You may find that the pad knob wants to be set down below noon, but feel free to set it wherever it needs to be. This will optimize the "gain structure" as well as minimize noise. "

I removed the rear pad (same as having it all the way up) and used the hole for a second output. 8)

Interesting. Would using two outputs at once compromise the pre amp in any way?
All's well that sounds well.

Not at all. It's just a parallel wired output. Same as using a "Y" cable only point to point in the SMS enclosure. :smile:
