    Picked up a Fat Boost 3 recently. I really like it, wonderin about one thing though... I have the gain real low, like just barely on... maybe 8 oclock. I have to turn the volume way up .. maybe 3 oclock... is this normal?
    I guess not much boost with the gain down that far?

    That's how mine was. The gain is almost like a second volume knob, until it's cranked. Then it starts distorting a bit too. It can get super loud at some settings

    Lotsa pedals are like this. Low gain, high vol. As you increase gain the vol. comes down.

    I guess I'm used to OD's. Like my Tubescreamer, with the gain almost off the volume still wont get past maybe 10 oclock.... and it's loud.
    I think I'll try the gain up a little more and see if the curunch increases too much... don't want much gain...
