    dont know if is my feeling but if I use the from input to 0% and the rear input 2 as well as 0% seems quieter
    Is it me or they have different gain, in which case what’s the difference?
    Cheers

    The front and rear inputs are supposed to be identical as far as I am aware.

    But what are you talking about setting to 0%? Hopefully not the Global Input Level (or is it called Instrument Level?) control? My understanding is that may affect tone is set below 5%.

    Below 5% the gain decreases so, yes, it will be quieter. Why are you setting it to 0%? You shouldn't need to go that low.

    Because I use an external treble booster and is the only way to avoid clipping...
    Any advice if I want to keep using the external tb? Maybe using rear ins?

    Plug the guitar into the Axe Fx and put the Treble Booster in a loop using either Input/Output 3 or 4?

    Or simply use the Treble Booster that's built in. It's not like there's any magic to a treble booster.

    For Brian May mode the external treble booster makes the difference
    Also is a strap one meaning guitar, strap tb, radio, the rest
    front input 0% and rear 6% balances, i guess i will keep it like that tho
    Cheers guys
