as of now I run the power amp full on (carvin dcm200l) and I adjust my volume with my preamp (sms)- but I have heard the opposite also - is there a correct way ? or do both ways work ? curious to see how others run their rigs
Agreed about the pre-amp. I run the power amp up to 85-90% and then use my guitar volume pot for final volume adjustments.Over simplified.....
Use the preamp gain for your tone.
