The hotbar should be floating parallel to the principle axis at this point. Next, take a hammer, and beat yourself in the face while crying JIHAD. problem fixed.

Moe, you win this thread You really should just stick with it. However a Danelectro Fish and chips might help and will be good when you get a tube amp.

actually is has less clarity when i turn the gain down cuz it gets all muddy sounding, even on the bridge pickup
how much more mids?
#19
Dial down the treble a bit, and maybe boost your mids up to 7.
Well, set your EQ all to 5 first. What is it like? Is it muddy, trebly, what?
We can help you from there.

its a little muddy on the low end, but every thing else sounds pretty even as far a my noobish ears can tell. I'll ask my guitar teach 4 a second opinion and ill post it latr
#21
I have one of those transtube amps and there really isnt any pedal or tweaking that will make it sound very good. Only reason I keep mine is its easier to move around the house than my tube amp.
