Tip: Master vs Channel Volume

The Channel Volume as equivalent to a channel strip on a mixing console. It simply turns up or down the overall volume of the amp. It does not effect the tone.

The Master Volume is essentially the master volume on the amp itself and therefore will effect tone by adding or decreasing dirt/grit.

  1. Absolutely not true at all. There are plenty of amps where the master volume affects tone. After reading that its hard to believe much of anything at all here. I wonder how much other mis information is here?


    1. Hello vic! I believe we got lost in translation there as the point you made is exactly what this post is saying.

      As a result, I modified the post slightly to bold “Channel Volume” and “Master Volume” to make it easier to discern what the article is stating.
