ok so ive had my peavey 6534+ now for almost 2 months (i think) and ive been loving it a ton, but this thing has a seriously bright clean channel. i was wondering if theres a way i can make the amp sound darker/warmer. because when i use the clean channel, resonace is almost maxed out, presence and highs are on 2 and lows are on 7-8 while mids are around 5

btw for the record about my rig:

peavey 6534+
mesa stiletto sized cab with 2 c-90 speakers and 2 speakers that appear to be mesa version of the vintage 30.
guitars:
all mahogany flying V with EMG 81/60
MiM fender telecaster all stock.

clean tones i really like are more jazzy type cleans where i normally do neck pickup and roll off the tone knob about halfway usually. but the amp is very bright, and i can get pretty close to my ideal clean tone, but its still a really bright amp

lower your highs, and raise your lows, and possibly add in a little bit of reverb. Its what a lot of jazz guitarists do to acheive their "sound". You might wanna consider using the middle selector switch or the bridge and lowering the tone by about 3/4 of the way.

currently highs are never higher than 2 on the clean channel and lows are always 7 or above.

ive actually been thinking of somekind of echo pedal for a bit now.

sometimes i actually try the middle selection, but it adds a certain brightness that im trying to avoid. and id roll off the tone knob more but then it starts to sound too hollow or my tastes.

btw i am no means a jazz guitarist, but i do like the tone

High capacitance curly cables. Get like 40 feet and it will roll of some of the highs quite well.

I sold a trainwreck clone I built to a friend and that is what he has to do to tame the brightness of the amp.

An EQ would be more useful between different amps though.

+1. Dunno about curly, but longer cables DO darken tone subjectively. At least, it did when I went from 3m to 9m.....

lowering your pup height on the GBe side may just fix the problem.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.
