Just tried mine and through a quiet clean amp,it hits unity about 3/4 on the volume and there's still a healthy boost available when pushed further. Tried it alongside the new Tb-02 and that is the same, volume around 3/4 gives just over unity.

Also with it being a darker more bassy tone than the TB it seems quieter when you a/b them.

Maybe a headroom issue for you? :hmm: ....its been a while since I've had the luxury of getting my amp really blasting :(

Yeah... I think it could be an amp thing too.
My coop was loud. And I mean like I had it at 9 I clock at home and it was very loud. So much I couldn’t use it at home to get the best out of it.

I put my Tbird mk4 into my little ga5 few weeks back and had to put the volume up to about 2/3 o’clock to get unity. I swapped amps and had to lower it some.

Maybe it’s to do with headroom and compression?!

Or am I just talking out my ass....

Should be the other way around, man. The SB-68 output should be well above that of a stock MKII.

Hit me up if you think it's fudged.
