Low gain setting provides a powerful boost whilst fattening your mid-range slightly and greatly increasing presence. This setting works best with tube amps, although solid state amps can benefit also :
At medium gain settings, the American Overdrive really shines: it allows for the detail and dynamics in your playing to shine through. Push the strings hard to get some grind, and play lightly to keep things clean.
Higher Gain / Distortion
At higher gain settings the American Overdrive adds its own distortion to the mix, become a bit more of a rocker, and is a great choice for both single coil and humbucker equipped guitars that need a hot, dirty, grinding texan sound.
