Wiz-D Pedal setup?

The Wiz-D came to my attention while researching the Dumbloid that I heard at a local shop (Guitar Showcase). When I got home I searched and read all the posts on TGP where the Wiz-D was mentioned. After more research and listening the great demo's on Youtube I bought one through Amazon.
Still trying to find my best setup. Have had a couple of instances where the pedal sounded amazing then I make the mistake of changing guitars and adjusting knobs again. My struggle seems to be that I like to play with both humbuckers and single coils.
The pedal also seems a bit amp sensitive. So far I've played it through a Two-Rock Studio 35, a mesa TA-30 and a Mark V. The 'knocked me over' moments seemed to happen more with the Two Rock.
Bottom line; Going on four days with this pedal and thought perhaps there are other owners/players of this pedal that would be interested in sharing their settings and setups. Anyone?

Get your amps tone set first.
Don't be afraid to turn those knobs. What your ideal tone is with it will be different than the next person. I think the Wiz is much easier to dial in good tones with than most others. Hard to get a bad sound out of it. Use the tone in your head & make it match the pedal. Now start experimenting!!

Actually thought about doing that but it seemed to me that going public and posting here on TGP just might be helpful to a few other folks besides myself.
....and who knows; the Wiz may just show up.
:)
Why not ask the Wiz? Nobody beats him because...HE'S THE WIZ!

Thanks Teleman..... Good tip. To take that a step further; one of the things I'm trying is backing the gain of the pedal down below 9:00 and adjusting the level and tone controls to almost match the amps tone. Once happy with that, I bring up the gain and lower the level to maintain the same overall loudness. The down side is this gets tricky with the mid-boost, tone and high cut being as interactive as they are.
No fear in knob turning here.
Cheers.
