Guitar Volume: Cranked or Rolled Back?

I'm curious as to what you guys do with your guitar volume...do you keep it on 10 then set your amp & pedal volume...or do you roll it back some then set your amp/pedals? The second choice I guess would work to boost for leads...

If you roll it back, how much to you turn it down? Any benefits to keeping it cranked?

I have been experimenting lately with amp settings and this came into mind...

Thanks

I would say it partially depends on your instrument, some of the better circuits have no loss when turning down volume, others lose tone. One thing that irritates me about the clapton strat is there is a 25db boost but not all pedals can handle it. I like to reserve about 20% if I'm cranked into a hot amp.

The volume knob is part of your total technique. Thats one thing that you should really master if you want to be more expressive. I personally tend to have it ALL OVER THE PLACE pending the type of thing that I am playing. Even on solos I dont crank it to 10 until the most serious part of the solo where I need some screaming sustain then it gets backed off to 8 right away...
