Tube saturation is when you turn level up loud enough for your tone to distort.

You can saturate two sets of tubes.
Pre and Power

Signal reaches the pres first. If you distort these you wont have to turn your power up to hear an overdriven guitar.

You can turn your pres down to a suitable level and turn your power up full and it may distort depending on amp specs.

Some people like to get a combination of both.

The higher you turn up your pre the less it takes to overdrive your power.

It so sweet when you get the right amount of distortion. Its so sweet.
