it means you EQ the amp so the mids are basically cut out...treble is up, bass is up and mids are down. lot of different opinions on how good or bad it sounds but it cuts you out and doesnt let you be heard through the mix.

I see you listen to Dimebag... He was very famous for having scooped mids. Try it on your amp playing something by Pantera. EQ: Mid:0 Bass: 8 Treble: 10

How low do your mids have to be set to before their considered "scooped?"


I've always played with my mids around 5 or 6

Under 5 is scooped I suppose.

Then I would get a new amp as soon as I could

Unless your amp has numbers... In which case, the numbers in the middle are...mids
