Hello
1st time poster with a burning question.
Which channel on the Heartbreaker has the highest gain, Love or Lust?
I've gone back and forth with this and searched through he forums for opinions.

So I'm asking all Heartbreaker users out there, what do you think and which channel do you use for your high gain setting?

Thank you

I find that the Lust channel has higher gain but is more compressed than the Love channel on Hi Gain mode. Either way, I think you really need to get the master volume up to get the most out of the Heartbreaker.

I just got a set of 6V6 tubes for mine to try and do just that at slightly less ear shredding volume.

Appreciate the comments recluse, I do wish the Heartbreakers had a 25/5 watt switch like some other Boogies, i do have it set on 60 watts tho.
Any other thoughts from other Heartbreaker users?

Put some EL34's in the amp
Set to Tweed voltage, Curvaceous, 100 watts
Crank it!

I've got 6V6's in mine right now, but I think this amp really needs EL's to sound it's best.
