Mids are your friends Boost them to cut through the mix in a band situation.
A bass guitar is a bass instrument, drums are the treble, and the Elec. Guitar is midrange.

mids take ur distortion from empty-sounding, trebly crunch to a full-toned, louder, more round-sounding distortion. Clean, mids make u sound more like an electric guitar rather than an almost acoustic sound. cutting out mids completely does suck some tone.

they add middles.


Haha! I was surprised at how hard I laughed at that

In practical terms, 'mids' are the frequencies that give the guitar the main full body of its sound, normally you add bass if you need a lower sound and treble of you require better higher tone. Cutting mids is a technique often used in modern metal, but normally one requires a mid boost when playing with a band, as explained by a user above me.

As Yngwi said guitars are a midrange voiced instrument. Cutting your mids too drastically only lets the low and high end come through, resulting in a muddy, undefined sound that will not cut through the mix in a band. Like playing a bass guitar and breaking glass. No balls. I would not go below 4 for mids. I like mine at 6-8 for most music. Sometimes 9, or for a very inadequate amp maybe even 10. Mids are where you get your best beefy distortion on a tube amp (as opposed to buzz-thump.)

Cutting out any EQ control sucks tone.

please god dont scoop the mids. Running no mids through an expensive amp is like using reg fuel instead of super in a Ferrari. It just doesnt let your amp show off how good it is.

its like buying a hooker but just having polite conversation with her

i think that says it pretty good

Have you tried a Dimarzio Steve's Special? They have a slight scooped voicing, but are meant to cut through the mix...
