Reducing the gain considerably is like adding 5” of throttle pedal travel. Idle is still idle, and full throttle is still full throttle. But you can much more easily control the car in the corners, and you can much more easily control the amp - which allows you to use more of its useful power. That gets you A LITTLE louder but sure helps you manage feedback while playing.
