I basically have to main EQ settings for my Traynor YCV20. One with mids at 8, one with mids at 4, but I seriously cant decide which one I like better. I just recently started to use the increased mids, and I really like it cuz it sounds a lot more saturated and takes away some of the fuzzyness of the gain on my amp. The cut mids setting sounds really good also, but I really cant decide. What do you guys think would be the more practical setting? I know you can cut through better with increased mids, but I also like that scooped tone every once in a while.

Also, heres another stupid question. Is there a way to keep that midrange punch and saturation but still have a scooped tone? I like a good metal tone but I cant stand that sterile, dry tone that I hear a lot nowadays.

I dunno, maybe get an EQ to actively switch between boosted mids and scooped mids?

buy an EQ pedal, set your amp for your rhythm tone and use the EQ to boost the mids for soloing.

Its like every question I ask about tone is answered with "EQ Pedal" lol...
I guess thats what I'll have to do.

And you would recommend using the pedal for boosted mids and the amps EQ for scooped? Or would vice-versa work? Which EQ is generally more sensitiv? The amps or the pedal's?

I'd set the amp to the scooped mids, because when you kick in the mid boost, you can boost the volume/gain along with it.

I would say the opposite, so that you boost when you are with less mids, since you will be harder to hear around that point.
