Hey guys and gals,

I am quite inexperianced when it comes to getting a tone out of my amp.

Any tips as to what you do,

I.e turn the bass up to here treble up to here add this effect etc.

Also it would be awesome if someone could tell me about how to know have far to turn up the volume knobs on the amp just the basics of understanding really

A good place to start with any amp is to turn all of your knobs straight up to 12 o'clock, and slowly turn them to where they sound good, not where they look good.

What amp do you have? What sounds are you trying to achieve? What guitar do you have?
