Amps/Effects/Rig:
-Engl E530 + 930/60 Poweramp

I've got mine set with the level at 5 (or 12 o' clock), the bass set at just above 5, treble just below 5, mid freq at around 2 (9 o'clock), middle a little lower than 2, and dist. anywhere between 4 and 6 (11 and 1 o'clock)
It doesn't sound bad with my setup, you just have to fiddle with the knobs fr a while and find what suits you best.

I'm sorry to be the one to tell you, but those pedals are notoriously bad. I don't have any experience with them, but most people are going to tell you to take it back and get something else....

The ones in the manual are probably the best you can get out of that peice of shite.

Off the top of my head, try the low end dialled to max, high end at 3oclock, mid at 10oclock, and mid freq dialled to minimum.

Oh, and the distortion cranked to about 3-4oclock.

Or you guys who think the pedal is bad, are notoriously idiots.

Here is one setting, I've toyed with

High-4 o-clock
Low- 12 o-clock
mid-10 o-clock
mid freq- 2 o-clock

Use the Level and Distortion accordingly.

Then you shouldn't make a decision over them.
