first off, love my .22 cal. great balance between portability and power.
however, i only find myself using the clean channel. the one set of eq makes it tough to dial in and make use of both channels. anyone out there find a way to make both channels work?

Do you have the graphic EQ model? If so, assign it to the lead channel.

Had the same problem when I had my .22 cal I've since upgraded to their Subway Rocket Reverb and can get all three channels to balance well.

Loved the sound of the .22 but never could get the channel switch thing to even out... possibly try a boost on the quieter channel which in my case was the distortion...

Balance the volumes of both channels with the first volume, and use the treble to control the gain on the dirty channel.

I have a .22+, no EQ. I had the same problem. I finally decided one amp won't get it done, used overdrives for my "second" channel. Lived happily ever after.

I do the same thing with my Mesa F30. That has separate knobs for each channel, but I loved the cleans, never cared for the second channel. Both take pedals great.

As with most Boogies like the .22 cal, turn down the bass knob, and turn up the mids.

Are you playing it in a band context, or mostly at home noodling? Most at home noodlers just can't seem to wrap their head around turning down the bass nob, but it will get you the results you are looking for. Your clean channel tone doesn't need a bunch of low end.
