    Only you will know, its your amp, mess with the volume and tone settings, see manual suggested settings, You might want to post your amp model that may help answer your pretty vague question.

    This will always vary with playing style and preferences. I personally like Marshalls when they're loud. Throwing a boost in front can sound great too in my opinion. Like mrdannyboy said, play around with it and find what you like.

    Boost like an EHX Soul Food can push the amp preamp to the edge to fatten it up leaving the SF gain at zero, just Volume (boost)... You can dirty it with the gain knob.. With a boost like the Soul Food, Klon, CHlonies, etc. etc. etc., it shoves the preamp tubes at low volume....

    By selling it and getting either a MESA Triple Crown, Bogner Uberschall, or better yet a PRS Archon. :laugh2:

    Shouldn't you be telling us that? HTF are we supposed to know what sounds best to you?

    Dime the amp and control it with your guitar volume.

    I can at least answer this from experience.Agree with the above,based on the original vintage amp architecture.I gig'd an original 2553 SJ.smallbox.
    @ 4 and above on the master dial(i used to park it around 6 to 7),a lot of the raspiness just disappears,replaced by roar, as the amp opened up.I was always in the boost mode.In this mode,i kept the preamp down,around 4(which still has considerable crunch),and I boosted it,at higher master volumes,with a tube preamp pedal, and an original Marshall Guv'nor.Choices.
    Turn the master up.

    I'm with rogue3....on any of the master volume Marshalls I have tried....the higher you can run the master volume the better they sound. Only possible exception was the Vintage Modern. You could get some pretty darn good sound at lower volumes but it still held true on the cranking the master volume thing.
