It really only happens when I'm strumming on the clean channel of my amp, but there seems to be a lot of spiking frequencies. Like I know I'm strumming with fairly consistent pressure, but sometimes the highs will spike and its kinda painful. Sometimes the bass also just takes over the tone. Basically, it just gets kind of muddy with occasional painful treble spikes.

So is there something that could fix this? I was thinking maybe a compressor, or the BBE sonic maximizer. I just want somewhat even string volume and separation when I'm strumming without losing any dynamics on my amp.

It also doesnt happen as much with any overdrive on the amp, cuz the distortion kinda smooths it out. This is just for strumming on the clean channel.

Turning the volume down on my amp also really helps, so it could just be when I run the tubes hot?

My EQ:
Treble 7
Bass 4
Mid 4

What kind of amp and guitar are you using? The treble spikes would be partially explained by your treble-heavy EQ settings, but knowing your rig would help.

only thing i could think to do would be to buy a compressor pedal.

I agree with DunlopGuy, a compressor is about the best way to even up the frequency response.

The amp is a Traynor YCV20 and I'm playing through a MIM tele.

The Traynor has fenderish gain, which I'm not a huge fan of, but clean, its a very dark amp. I have worked around with my EQ for weeks now and this is the best I've gotten.
