    Really ? Mine are huge differences .... All 3 sound flavorful, and I like the phat rat setting over the vintage mode. The mighty mouse middle switch is a massive boost. Maybe yours has a defect ?

    Yeah, pretty big difference.
    Mighty Mouse mode into a Bassman is sick :)

    Mine makes a pretty big difference, as well. The mid setting is a "little" cleaner and crisper, the left louder, and more compressed, with more umchucks, the right is more vintage rat, but a little more character. Left is louder of the three settings, given the same knob orientations....

    Here's what I found:
    Yes, there should be a huge difference when the pedal is set to half-way or medium type settings. If you have the volume set very low or high, or in particular the distortion set to any extreme, then you may not notice.
    Thanks,
    Robert Keeley

    My pedal works fine. I was using it with distorsion at low setting and volume at high. :jo

    Right on! I was wondering if your ears were going out on you, because mine really, and I mean REALLY, sounds different at the different toggles.
