    Hello,

    so i am off to my first pedal after 1 year playing my american prof strat in mostly clean mode on a blues junior iv.

    I have found a line 6 dm 4 pedal with a number of great pedal models in it and now have it in hand...all set up and working fine. But my experience with any pedals is just a zero.

    Some questions:

    1. What settings do I set the amp to when the pedal is connected. Do I set the distortion level from the pedal and then arrange the tone from the amp or do I put the knobs of the amp to a particular setting and then set the tone from the pedal. The pedal has knobs for drive, bass, mid, treble, volume and gate.
    2. Upon pressing the footswitch of the pedal I note a strong hiss from the amp. Can I remove this?
    3. I can lower the gain close to zero for this hiss to be removed but then I barely get any volume from the amplifier.

    Finally anyone using this pedal can provide any other information about it and how you find it in general.

    [QUOTE = "emann, post: 3815050, member: 68274"] Ciao,

    quindi sono pronto per il mio primo pedale dopo 1 anno a suonare il mio prof americano in modalità prevalentemente pulita su un blues junior iv.

    Hi I wanted to ask, if your BJ also has background noise, like hummmm when you turn it on. You can hear if there is silence but to register a little annoyance ...
    I wanted to know if this is normal!
    Thanks a lot.
    Ho trovato un pedale di linea 6 dm 4 con un numero di fantastici modelli di pedali e ora l'ho in mano ... tutto impostato e funziona bene. Ma la mia esperienza con qualsiasi pedale è solo zero.

    Alcune domande:

    1. Su quali impostazioni imposto l'amplificatore quando il pedale è collegato. Regolo il livello di distorsione dal pedale e poi arrangio il tono dall'amplificatore o metto le manopole dell'amplificatore su una particolare impostazione e poi imposto il tono dal pedale. Il pedale ha manopole per drive, bass, mid, treble, volume e gate.
    2. Premendo l'interruttore a pedale del pedale, noto un forte sibilo dall'amplificatore. Posso rimuoverlo?
    3. I can lower the gain close to zero for this hiss to be removed but then I barely get any volume from the amplifier.

    Finally anyone using this pedal can provide any other information about it and how you find it in general.[/QUOTE]

    I have no hum on my Blues Junior - can it be coming from your pickups - static energy?

    Maybe try a noise gate pedal and see if it goes away.
