Hey UG
I use POD Farm and i would like some advice on how to use the 4 band parametric EQ or other components to remove the fizz from behind high gain amps when boosted, without losing brightness. Its really annoying me at the moment and i have no idea where to start.
Could you please tell me what i should do to remove the horrible fizz from behind the sound.
Thanks very much all
PS - I'll try record some examples

Most of the fizz lies at 9-11k, maybe even 12k. IMO.

Try -1 to -3 DB at 9-12k and see what happens. Not too much, or you loose presence.

Re-record and turn down the gain?

It's always better to re-record and get the sound you want rather than try to salvage something that isn't really there.

Could I get some more talent in the monitors, please?

Fizz really needs to be fixed at the source, as it's a problem that can stretch out anywhere from about 2kHz upwards and is difficult, if not impossible, to get rid of with corrective EQ.

lowering the gain on the amp is the first thing to try, but also re-balancing the gain versus the treble and presence controls.

after that, narrow EQ notches at particularly problematic frequencies will help to get rid of whats left.
