what does the resonance and presence do? because a see that things a lot on marsharlls

they extend the range that the bass/treble controls have. the more presence, the more range ur treble will have. they are wonderful knobs.

I really wish the 800 was NMV with a Resonance knob where the Master is. That would be epic.
Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Feel free to express yours so I can make an informed judgement about how stupid you are.

Not techinally true, as I understand it, they're simply passive EQ controls for the poweramp section of your amplifier. Setting how much Lows (Resonance/Depth) or Highs (Presence) are let into your poweramp.

Even though your treble/bass knobs have more effect, It's not that your preamp's eq range that is bieng increased, its that more frequencys are allowed in the poweramp, so moving the treble/bass seems to have a greater effect as more of the particular frequency is let through into the power amp.

This is the most simple way to explain it for everyone to understand on a basic level. A great explanation dude and true for the way some amps incorporate these features.
