ive been playing guitar for about 5 years now..and ive just heard the term "dont scoop your mids". and i might have an idea of what i means but im not really sure, if someone could just give an explanation real quick that would be great!

dont pull your mids out of your eq

Quote by SuperSamuraiGuy
Thanks for answering all my question ssguitar

typical noob EQ setting on your amp...

treble: 10
Mid: 0
Bass: 10

don't do it!
mids help you cut through the mix in a band situation
for metal tones i usually have mids about half way (5)

dont "scoop" I/E pull them down to negative levels.

scooping has it's pluses and pitfalls you get a "low bass sound" but with diminished clarity and volume.
