    What three boost settings do you store in your amp? I like clean boost, Big Muff, and warm overdrive. The guv'n sounds good but is very close to the big muff to my ear.

    I play mostly on the clean amp channel and use the boost "pedals" for dirt. The crunch, lead, and brown channels seem harder to dial in.

    I was suprised how warm and dynamic the clean channel is, but i find the drive channels fairly typical bland solid state stuff.

    So far i like the clean or mid boost and the guv best, for distortion stuff though i've found myself using the orange sneaky amp with a tiny bit of reverb and just cranking the gain on that with no pedal.

    I've got a KTN50, but I'm a clean amp guy. I've dialed in sounds more like a Deluxe Reverb. I'm still trying to convince myself that I don't need a '68 DRRI. For overdrive I set the Crunch channel to sound like my SCXD on the Marshall setting. I don't use the Lead or Brown channels. If I want more distortion I'll add the Blues Drive effect.
