I play thru a Super and the tone really starts gettin right around 5 or 6. But for the audience this volumn can be quite painful. I find that if I turn my amp mostly toward the wall and or place something in front of my amp it really helps. I get the tone I want and the audience suffers no hearing loss. Ever notice how rooms with carpet suck all your high's out and your stuck with a muddy bassy sound. Get you about a 1/4" 3x3' plywood board and lay in front of your amp. Makes all the difference in the world.

Like Chick I'm about at 6, after that my resonator guitars will
start to howl, and control the volume at the guitar,
I just learnt this the past two years my-self, before that though
I seldom played electric,
The beauty of amping acoustics is you don't need any pedal
or master volume for that matter to overdrive the amp,
they seem to naturally distort the amp!
I'm using a Silvertone Twin Twelve, its one nice sounding amp,
