I don't play out live that often with a full band, but when I do I always am struggling with controlling volume. The struggle is in two ways. First, increasing volume for solo parts vs. the rhythm volume, and second when I use some level of boosted volume, keeping it from getting way too dirty. As a disclaimer, I like to play somewhat dirty with overdrive and fuzz, and only usually play with humbucker equipped guitars or P-90's, and I usually like the bridge position. But, I am wondering how most are controlling volume when they play? I have tried various boosts, clean/transparent type and overdrive type, when soloing, have tried pickup switching, and the volume knob. All with some success, but not great success. I have now moved to a volume pedal on my board for volume control and I much prefer that over the volume knob. The more I play live the more I realize that really good players are really good at controlling volume. I see these guys flip their pickup switch to the bridge and just rip and it sounds perfect. Curious to what people are doing. If this has been discussed ad nauseum on here, I apologize in advance.
