I was reading settings for a song, and one of the settings was 'presence'. on my amp i have most necessary knobs to turn but not the presence setting. is there another word for this, if not what is 'presence'?

a control on a guitar amplifier that boosts the upper frequencies above the normal treble control range for added high-end. This control is usually a shelving type of equalizer, and is normally implemented as a lowpass filter inside the global negative feedback loop. By decreasing the amount of high frequencies that are fed back, the high frequencies at the output of the amplifier are boosted.

The PRESENCE control adds high frequencies and makes your sound crisper.

What's the big deal with Gibsons, anyway?
I've heard loads of Gibsons being played before
and they don't sound any more special than
any other guitar.

What amps have this setting? Marshalls?

I know Krank amps (atleast the Krankenstein does, not sure about the revolution) have a presence setting. Don't know of any Marshalls that have this setting.

Certain Fender amps have the "Presence" control as well.

As stated earlier, it makes your sound much crisper. (i.e. for lead guitarists)

The presence knob is mainly just so we don't end up sounding like the teacher from the Peanuts when we play leads.

Cheap amps are "that bad". They suck up your tone like cocaine at Kate Moss' party.

According to the owners manual for my Yamaha G100-212, it alters the response of the amp by boosting the high frequency range (2~5 KHz). The result is a brighter sound with greater clarity and "presence"

Reesh.. no. Mids are part of the equalizer. The presence knob boosts the top-end of the guitar tone so it gives you a clearer sound for soloing.

Mesas have presence controls.
If you start a reply with: I have never played one but I have heard good things about it! Your opinion is invalid.
