i have just gotten myself into eqing my guitar and amp...the only problem is that i have no idea what or how to do it...i kno how to use a graphic Eq, but my gt-8 has a paramatic(sp) Eq...this is where u deal with the frequencies and decibles...i was wondering if anyone could give a couple tips on how to eq a good funk sound or rock sound...and it would be greatly apprieceated if someone could explian what the frequencies do, or a graph or chart on what notes correspond to the different frequencis

thx ahead of time -Luke

Well for any type of guitar in a band situation its always best to have loads of mids and not loads of bass, you cut through a lot better


yea if youre playing thru a little crappy combo.

i keep my JCM900 at:

Highs: 4
Mids: 6.5
Lows: 7
Presence: 3
Gain: 8

and it cuts thru fine.

Get a midi interface and cable and connect it to your pc. The download GT8EDITOR and there's a nice graphic EQ just for you.

+ you can download patches and make your own on a computer interface and then send them
realtime to your GT-8. That's what I have and it's great.

Try a smiley EQ, so lows and highs, no mids.

Scooped mids are washed up and sound like crap. The mids are where you get all your tone.

My Marshall TSL is EQ'd at:

Bass: 6
Mids: 7.5
Treble: 6.5
Presence: 6.5
Gain: 9 (I use a compressor for a gain boost on top of that)

The tone is sweet as hell with those settings.
