Usually never, I usually EQ the amp to my liking before resorting to the tone knob. But if I designed a song where I needed a duller tone, then I'd prolly use it to make the sound more dull and bassy, but otherwise, they are just there...taking up space.

when i need a thick bluesy tone, or some less bite on the higher notes when i do arpeggios. I don't use it much. I normally leave it maxed, but I have used it before.

when playing clean i usually take it down to 5 for warmer chord textures and single note lines. when i had my ibanez rs315 (1 bridge humbucker) i used it ALL the time to get a smooth lead sound and a nice clean sound

I have one really twangy guitar that just gets shrill with the tone knob up. it's a good sound for pantera and the like but that isn't my kind of thing. I keep it rolled off

I always have my guitars' tone knobs scooped, it's just part of my tone. I love that bassy kind of sound

I use it a lot of my strat, I wired it so that there is one master tone that controls all 3 pickups, and I usually have it rolled slightly down so I can switch guitars without having to change much on my amp. On my Ibanez I also leave it rolled down about 2 mm.

I generally roll down my tone knob for the Jazz and Blues.
Damn it! Disable can't use disable to disable Disable's disable because disable's disable has already been disabled by Disable's disable!

Never had a use for my tone knob. One of my Strats is modded to just a single humbucker pickup (no real use for a middle or neck pickup either ) and a volume knob.

I roll it all the way down, use the neck humbucker and palm mute
HILT!

I wonder how many more "hey, um... how many people use their tone knobs???" threads we'll see this year.

Let's see about 3 and a half months left in the year... Hmm... My money is on at least 50. Any takers? (Obvious sarcasm but you get the point)

UG doesn't display post counts in the actual forum so what would be the point of that?
From here(and this is the only vantage point that really counts) it looks like me saying this thread has been done dozens if not hundreds of times and people should use the searchbar before asking the same question where 90% of people say that they don't use the tone knob every time.

9 times out of 10 i have my tone knobs all the way up, but if the tone knob isn't there the guitar usually sounds a bit too harsh in the treble register for my tastes. I like to have it there just incase i need to turn it down anyway. I only really use it sparingly to tame harsh pick attack if it needs to be tamed, but it's useful to have even if you don't really use it.

edit:

^the problem with the searchbar is you get a load of noobs necro-bumping useless threads that died for a reason, just to say something useless anyway
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.

you've got to admit seeing all the OH BOY IT'S THIS THREAD AGAIN posts that don't add anything to the thread get a bit old.

I will say though, it's better than replying to a thread just to say "*reported*"

the forum rules actually encourage posting to say *reported* when you report a thread. it's to let other people know they should just ignore the thread. moderators don't like getting loads of report notifications for the same post/thread. you also get a warning for posting in an obvious spam thread that's been reported.

Okay, so does anyone have any request for a more sensitive tone knob? Or would you like to see, on the whole, a more sensitive tone knob on guitars?
Sincerely, Chad.

I get doing it once, but sometimes you see a thread with 8 reported notifications, and that's what I'm talking about
