Hi, I have a B-52 112 Amp and I'm running it through an mxr 10 band eq, bad monkey, and a whole bunch of effects pedals.

And lately, its not getting the tone i want.

I want like a pretty rectoish tone (mesa-sounding) if thats possible, i heard its possible =\.

so what should my settings be

contour, treble, middle, bass, gain, low res, and reverb. and i think thats all

thanks (=

ehh, on my amp i have the mids at about 5...contour at about 1, then i have my eq scooped out slightly. Use one for lead and one for rhythm
...

would that make a rectoish tone? and what do people mean by scooped? i hear it a lot like scooped mids and stuff.

if you wanted a recto tone, you should have gotten a recto...
b-52 is not a mesa, and scooped mids just means to lower the mids, such that your eq would make a smiley face

scooped mids mean the middle frequencies are cut. simply, do not do it.

Boost bass a tad, then boost mid and treble a bit more. never overdo EQ'ing, for EQ'ing is for fixing mistakes.

Is there such a thing as a heavy riff with out chugging on the e string?

Unless it says "MESA" on the front of it then chances are you're not gonna get a Mesa tone out of it. Sorry about your luck man.
