Hey guys, I was doing some mixing for some bands the other night and they all plugged into my Valve-king and Harley Benton 1x12 and there was this slight top end fizz that was really irritating me, cause no matter what the bands did to reduce it. It wouldn't go.

I'm guessing that it's my cab/speaker... Am I right?

Mixing as in...?

Imagine the part of the ballsack where occasionally old poo sticks to the pubes and hardens, and you then have to pull out, but as an amp. That's an MG.

I think so...

Okipokies.

I'm gonna guess mic'd up? (Bit obvious) but have you tried moving the mic? Mics played central on the cone are very too end-y? Or even reducing the treble on the desk?

Yeah I had to move the mic off the cone slightly, I wasn't sure how to reduce the treble at the desk. I did reduce the gain a tad though and it seemed to help?

I have no idea. It was big though, I know that doesn't help though!

Either put a JJECC83S in the 1st and 2nd preamp spots, or lower the gain to AC/DC level crunch/overdrive, reduce the treble dial and boost the front of the amp with a boost pedal. Then raise the boost pedals treble dial higher than the amps treble dail.

Agreed. It could easily be the tubes. Throw some JJ's at it.

An EQ pedal with the highest-highs cut 6db or so will take care of most if not all high-end fizz.

Ace, I've now plugged er in at home and I'm not getting any of the fizz, but like Cathbard (and others) have said. New tubes is a good option.

From reading about the VK head apparently I can just change tubes with no biasing required (assuming they're 6L6 based, or is that wrong?)
