Can you guys suggest an EQ setting to get a nice pop punk tone?

I dont know much about eq settings, and I dont know what knobs you have...so here is what I would think...treble all the way, bass quarter way, mid half or less the way, and a good distortion/overdrive to go with it..

It's a Marshall.... turn it up and there you go.... pretty much instant punk tone.... at least from my experience with the JCM2000
I've bought, sold, and traded more gear than I care to admit.

Have you tried the Ultimate Settings sticky at all...?


I would but at school, the first page is blocked because the word "MySpace" is there. I can't find any other page with information that would work well for me.

TSL.

Gotcha. Just make sure there's a healthy amount of mids and treble, and that if you have a prescence control it's around 11 o'clock to 3 o'clock, with 12 o'clock being the middle of the dial.


Thanks man. I haven't found anything about presence settings. I don't even know what it means tbh,

Prescence is kind of like a high-mid bite control, to my ears. And pop punk has a lot of that.

Just fiddle with it between that sweep range I gave you, see where you like it.


Alright, thanks a lot dude.

Would this work well with a Fender Strat? Its a buddy of mine's so I'm not really familiar with it.
