    If you're referring to the "gain knob", keep it unplugged from the amp while setting gains. Then plug it in.

    this will work or max it out because if you do it with out it as soon as you introduce it to the amp it will clip

    turn the knob to the highest setting you would use, then go back and readjust your gain on the amp.
