So I am running my metal zone into my Valveking 112 for the first time, and I got some questions


1. Do I run into the front of the amp or into the fx loop?
2. Do I set all of my amp eqs to 6 o clock and do all the eqing via the pedal, vice versa or some other way?
3. Should I use the distortion on the clean channel or do I run it into the gain channel via the FX loop and lower the onboard overdrive?
4. Do I keep the gain boost on or will that swallow up the tone?
5. What are these odd/even order harmonics I keep hearing about?
6. Metal zone or dirty monkey?
7. What affect would turning the texture knob from high power (class ab) to low power (a) have?


any answers would be appreciated.

1. You should run any distortion or overdrive effects in front of the amp.
2. You can EQ either, but EQing both will help shape your sound the most.
3. Run it on the clean channel. If you run it on the drive channel it will feed back like crazy and sound terrible.
4. I'd keep the gain boost off if you're using the clean channel.
5. I don't know what to say...... can you explain the question better?
6. ?????? Whats a dirty monkey? Do you mean a Bad Monkey? I would rather have a Bad Monkey than a MT2, if that's what you're asking.
7. Sound-wise, not much

You're not truly playing guitar unless you know theory.

Even order harmonics are harmonics that are octaves of the fundamental note. Odd order harmonics are harmonics that are at different intervals related to the fundamental note. Even order are typically preferred because it adds a thickness and dimension to the tone while the odd order harmonics can be harsh and annoying and can cause ear fatigue. The MT-2 will produce odd order harmonics for the most part, atleast stock.

Really, the bad monkey would suit a VK better, and not the MT2.......
