I got myself an Eclipse the other day, and I love it like nothing else. What's new to Me are the 2 volume and 2 tone knobs, I only had 2 tones and 1 volume before. Can someone explain to how to use the tone knobs (the volumes are quite straightforward) and maybe what your cab settings are? I play mostly metal/core.

they work the same as a single tone knob would but allow you to control the tone for each pickup individually so you could for example turn one all the way down to reduce the higher frequencies from one pickup while leaving the other turned up or any combination that you want ?

and go for the classic scooped sound in your amp of course!

what i like about 1 tone for each pickup, for cleans and some neck pickup leads i like to roll off on the tone a bit and with a dedicated tone knob, i dont have to switch pickups then roll off the tone

Hmmm, scooped.. I've heard that term before. What's it mean?

means the EQ curve has alot of highs and lows but the mids are "scooped" out

generally not a good idea because with severly scooped mids, you lose all your cut in a band situation

Hmm. I see... For full on heavy metal should I just keep everything on 10?

i like having individual volume and tone controls for all pickups but as i'm pretty much primarily a stat player i've settled for using the vol-tone-tone scheme. but anyway with that setup you can do cool stuf like have the neck pickup volume rolled off for a cleaner sound, and leave the bridge wide open, and being able to blend the tones of the two pickups is great

Sounds interesting, I've never given them much attention, but now with all these dials I'll get all kinds of neat sounds.

bride tone you will most likely want on 10 all the time, but experiment with the neck tone, you might find some interesting sounds, for cleans and distorted leads
