I set my Line 6 to max and "play teh br00t4lz"...

But on topic, My mids and my trebles are always higher than my bass. Just the way I prefer it.

i eq most of my amps like this

treble- 8-10
mids- 2-5
bass- 4
gain-6
reverb= 2-3

its does pretty well for most punk/metal/hardcore with high gain pups

idk...my amp is bass @ 3, mids at 5 and treble@9. (for clean)
but my BBE Distortion pedal (on top of the clean for distortion) is bass @8,mids and treble at 5.
But depends...with my les paul bass@8 and mid at 5 is too much, but with my 72' telecaster deluxe it's just right
I play pop punk,punk rock, alt

90% of us scoop the mids. The rest don't. Thread closed.

Most of these settings are useless unless everyone was using the same amp. Different companies have different voicings and you're not going to get the same sounds if you dial identical eqs into a MG15 and an ENGL etc.

That being said, I use a Laney GH50L with the bass around 6, the treble around 2 and the middle around 4. In the past, I have used more mids but as I have already said, some amps are naturally midsy anyway.

i have a behringer v-tone GMX 212. it's pretty b.a.

high - 10, mid - 10, low -7, and my gain cranked to 10.

rig: a silvertone paul stanley sovereign -> behringer UM300 distortion (which i barely use) -> behringer v-tone.

the amp itself is great

fortunately the amp has different settings which allow you to shape your sound even more, so even tho the gain is on max, it's not just a loud white-noise sound. it shapes the sound to model other amps, plus nemurous built in combinations and settings. plus it's LOUD

^ Damn, dude! Your amp sounds awesome, where can I get one of those babies?

Considering most of us have 3 band EQs and maybe a presence knob at most, why do people still find it hard to get a good sound from their amps. Any player that has "trouble" EQ'ing their amp must be pretty stupid in my opinion.

On my laney,I set it like this:
Bass:10
Mids:6
Treble:6
Presence:1-2
DS-2 Set like this:
Volume: 5
Tone: 4
Gain: 4
Big Muff:
Volume: 6
Tone: 3
Sustain: 4.
Some people might think 'that's gonna sound ****' but gets me a great Kyuss/Fu Manchu tone.

I just got a 10 band EQ today, so I'm still fiddling around with that. I usually keep my bass at 7-10, mid 5-6, treble 7-10, depending on what I'm playing. My gain can go anywhere from 4 to 8.

Step 1 - turn knobs
Step 2 - listen to sound
[Do you like the sound? yes/no]
If "yes" continue playing, if "no" repeat step 1, taking care not to put the knobs in the same place.

marshall jcm2000 tsl60

bass: 5 or 6 , so nearly halfway on both clean and distorted channels

mids: maxed out

treble: about 5 or 6 but its around 7 or 8 on the distorted channels because they can be abit muddier

presence: about 6


big muff: Tone in the middle slightly towards the treble side, sustain is set very low because i dont often want everything really really distorted, sustains about 1 or 1.5

volume: 3/4 of the way up
#20
I alternate between

Bass - 7.5
Mids - 8
Treble - 6
Gain - 7

And

Bass - 5.5
Mids - 6.5
Treble - 4.5
Gain - 7

I have my EQ on my Laney VC30 set at treble 4 mids 7 bass 6 and the bright switch on, which gives the amp a nice balanced output and a reasonably bright tone without jabbing your ears with treble output.

I run the overdrive channel mostly, with gain on 4, to give a light crispy overdrive which reacts to pedals very well indeed.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

Bass: 6
Mids: 8
Treb: 4

But then I have my EQ pedal lower the mids, raise the treble and reduce the volume slightly for my rhythm sound. Kicking the EQ pedal off returns me to the amps EQ and full volume for my lead sound.

At the moment on my Valveking:
Clean channel - Bass - 5 Mid - 7 Treble - 7 and then I use my big muff for distortion, with each knob at 5.
#28
Gain: 12 o'clock
Bass: 1 o'clock
Middle: 12 o'clock
Treble: 1 o'clock
Presence: 8 o'clock, or if we have 2 guitarist on a night, I kick it up to 11 o'clock.

My cab has tons of high mids/treble though so I'll probably end up knocking off some treble/presence for Dirtfest.

It seems that most people have a set tone but i never really do that though. Sometimes i'll play clean and want a bright, chimey tone reminiscent of a Vox, while other times i'll alter my EQ to to try achieve something in the vein of a Bassman.

I probably spend at least a quarter of my playing time EQing in different tones.

It varies for me but usually I have the bass lowest at around 2-5 followed by the mids at 4-6 and then the treble is usually around 6-9.

Sorry for thread-crashing, but find much difference after getting a 10-band? Or overkill? I'm interested, especially since you can get a 2-channel 30-band for €150 - not bad in my opinion.
