Well... The low knob adjusts the low end frequencies, the mid adjusts the middle frequences and the hi adjusts the high end frequencies. The Reverb adjusts the reverb, which is more or less a slight delay effect I guess you could say.

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

^ yah
just experiment and turn the knobs to find your favorite EQ (low, mid, high) setting.
and reverb makes it sound like you are playing in a big room(or hall), higher reverb= bigger room

so what you're saying is

low=bass
mid=?
hi=treble
reverb=delay(ish)

edit: and what do you think would be a good setting for them? (sorry for the noob questions, its my first fancy amp)

Yes, exactly.

Just play around with them for your own settings. You want mids as the guitar is a mid instrument. The bass picks up well... the bass, the drums pick up a lot of highs with cymbals, the guitar fills in the rest.

Playing by yourself, low mids might sound good, but if you ever play in a band or with other people, you will not cut through very well in the mix and people won't be able to hear you. So, don't turn them all the way down.
