Can any one here explain EQing to me?
I mean,treble/mid/bass and that stuff.
Also, i might be getting an EQ pedal for my Crate V8 Plaomino.
Can you explain how they work and show me some good cheap options?

well high is your high tones bass is your low tones and mid is your mid tones
it tunes how crisp each one is or suming, basicly have a fiddle and get a sound u like

Basically turning up your
Bass: Gives a chunkier sound y'know chug chug chug choo choo
Mids: Its kinda hard to explain, just turn them up and you'll hear it
Treble: Gives a cutting sound to it, makes you really stand out from the rest of the band.

Also, bass might be called low and treble may be called high on your amp.

Ok,i think i got,thanks.
Any suggestions/explanations about EQ pedals?
I saw the Danelectro Fish n Chips once,and the controls on it were pretty weird.

set all 3 at 12`oclock (halfway) then move them idividually to see what each of them do, use this process to also find your own settings.

I feel this needs to be said.

On some EQ pedals, (a lot, actually), instead of getting "low, mid and high" knobs, you'll get little faders (the sliding things). Each fader represents a frequency. The frequency faders are in intervals of frequency, if that makes sense. The fader for the "40" will boost the frequencies around 40Hz, or in other words boost the low lows. As you travel across the faders, they will represent a higher group of frequencies. These pedals allow you to more accurately hone an EQ, however it'll probably take a little longer to find the perfect setting

nothing special about this one, it looks as any eq pedal
each knob adjusts the frequency stated, just play with them and you'll get what to do
"level" knob adjusts volume

I didn't get it,cause i didn't know how to use these things :P.
Tanks guys, i think i get it now.
Thing about my amp, it has only Gain/Tone/Volume settings, so i'm thinking of getting an EQ pedal.
Any suggestions at around 40 bucks?

Wait your amp doesn't even have an EQ? What are you using?

It was a hypothetical question.
I didn't really know about EQing when i got.
I still think it sounds great as an amp, but it can sound better,so i think i'll get an EQ pedal.
