Hey Everybody, first post...

Okay, so I bought this new amp, it has all sorts of accessories, but there's a few of the effects, that I just don't know what does. These "contour" and "treble" thingies. what are they? And what EXACTLY does the feedback-button do ?
There's also this power-button? What the hell is that?

Just kiddin about that last one, heh.. but can you help me with the three others?

-Thanks in advance

feedback button? never heard...
maybe something like a built-in noise gate
so there won't be this squeeling noise (feedback) when your amps turned on really loud...
contour changes the sound style...like shape on some amps with lead channel
and treble is high on a eq for n00bs
Hold my breath
as I wish for death
Oh please god wake me

Welcome to UG!

D'ya mind tellin' us what this mysterious amp is? lol

Treble will adjust the high frequencies in the signal, and I think contour is to do with mids.

I believe contour is like a 'scoop mids' dial, the further you turn it up, the more your mids are scooped.

In simplified form lol, turn treble up for a brighter,higher pitched sound(usually less bassy)
Turning contour down will result in less mid-range frequencies being heard.Turning up= increasing mid-frequencies(kind of more bassy and dark).

The opposite for the contour I believe

I have a middle AND a contour dial...as well as resonance...

Havent touched them yet though.


Edit: Oh, I get it, you didnt say what amp it was in the post, to save you from those "get a new amp!" posts, you, my friend, are a smart man.
