Volume between channels

Post by Suave Eddie » Sun Mar 31, 2019 7:03 pm

I've got a 2005 Lonestar version 1, (blue pig). I've had it since 2015 and have pretty much always had the drive engaged on channel two. I was just doing some experimenting with taking the drive out of the circuit. I set up both channels identical with gain full on both. According to the manual, "Set to CLEAN, all overdrive circuitry is removed and Channel 2 is a slightly higher gain clone of
Channel 1."
Ch2 does get a bit more gain than ch1 this way, but the actual volume is lower in ch 2 than ch1. In order to achieve volume parity I have the master on ch1 at 11:00 and the master on ch2 at 2:00.

Is this normal? Everything else works perfectly. The tubes are new.
