Anyone know the factory settings for the trimpots?

Have a used one and I'd love to get a reference point for what this baby sounded like right out of the box.

I've got the Diablo and Diablo Gain+, and I just love those pedals!

Any fave settings? Any favourite place to put the trimmers?

Just feeling my way around the controls and loving it, but would love to hear what people who have used it for a while are liking.

What do you find are the effective gain ranges for them?

I'm pretty happy with what I have in the low-gain boost/EQ sort realm but finding a natural sounding pedal for more mid-gain uses is always difficult for me. I find they either sound very "pedally" or else they tend to impose a bit too much a certain character on my basic Voxy amp tone. I don't really want to sound specifically "Marshally" or "Dumbley" if that makes any sense?

Well.....that's a tough one in that I have the OKKO set differently for different Amps/Guitars I use depending on the Venue. I generally use the Gain+ only, and set the first gain just over the edge of breakup, so I can use pick attack and volume to clean it up....or put hair on it....then I set the second gain for a good solid OD. EQ depends on if I'm using single coil or Humbucker's.....and I've generally left the internal trim pots to factory settings since they work well for me as it.

I set one gain at noon and max the second one!! I've definitely been digging mine as well! The voltage doubler switch is genius.

Pretty close to how I have mine set on my PT Nano

I don't suppose anyone has both a Diablo and a Twin Sonic and/or has done a side by side demo? I'd love to hear the tonal differences/similarities.

I'm thinking that I could use a Diablo as a core low-mid gain OD tone and the Twin Sonic as a cleaner to dirtier booster but I'm guessing there is some overlap.
