Hey there, for the longest time I've been using a NYC Big Muff after my Rat 2 as a solo booster. I however didn't use it as a clean solo boost, I had the volume set at about 10:00 the tone and sustain both at 12:00. My Muff killed over at a show so i bought a Micro Amp to replace it which i didn't care for because all i was getting was a volume boost, and was lacking sustain and the bit of extra grit i was getting from the Muff, the Muff didn't just give me more volume but it took my distortion sound to the next level which i liked. I know that the Muff and Micro amp are very different pedals and I should not have been surprised with the results. I just bought another NYC Big Muff and setting the knobs the exact same way, i don't notice a volume boost at all, if i turn it up any higher i get horrible feedback. I just ordered the Boss SD-1, I hear lots of people say that they use it as a clean boost with the volume up and drive down, but couldn't i leave it a little dirty sounding with the volume up to take my rat2 distortion sound to the next level? I play through a 40 watt Fender Blues Deluxe, and use the clean channel.
