As far as i know the only liquor that should not be stored after opened is wine, and even then it's mainly the french one. American wine usually has conservatives in it to stop this.

It's a common trick people use when EQ'ing - it's a pretty good way to get a decent tone from any amp...it's certainly far better than people chucking out arbitrary EQ settings that apply for different pieces of kit. For a simple practice amp it's pretty much the best method to use to get things sounding as good as they can.

I asked georg lynch since that is the sound i like. Here is his advice. Bass 10, mid 6-7 and trble on 8. He mentioned lots of beginers crank the treble up thinking they hear it on records. I also lowered the gain on my digitech rp100 in mesa boogie mode to 75 and it sounds really good. For reverb i use spring at set it at 60 and 35

Hope that helps.
