Normally refers to sound characteristics of the AMP pr PREAMPS high frequency range... The higher the presence the frequencies are boosted...

Or at least that's how I understand it.

I think it's gain over all - IE if presence is high then all channels will have more gain than if presence is low.


Nope.

It's more like really high treble, I don't know much about it but I know it's not gain.

I think it's the frequency above Treble.
Like. bass.mids,treble,presence.


It could be that, I have no real definition for you, I just turned my amp on and messed with the presence for a bit and higher presence sounded to have more gain. Hmmm, I'll turn it on again and maybe check PH at low and high presence settings.

boosts the upper frequencies above the normal treble control range for added high-end

Ok, got it. So amps that lack presence control (like mine) are doomed to bassier tones?

No, just MORE bassier tones.
You could quite simply boost the treble and maybe some mids, if that really bothers you.

If you turn down the presence, it sounds like there is a blanket over the speakers. The more you turn it down the thicker blanket gets. (more muffled) If you turn the presence way up, your head explodes.


No, in all ceriousness if you turn it up, the top end sounds more gritty and nail biteing. Ex: Bring me the Horison has high presence. And Dethklok has slightly low presence

Presence controls the range of the treble control. Having control of presence basically is like having a blanket over your amp, as you raise the presence it sounds like you are steadily taking the blanket off your amp.

Its amazing what you can learn in the Guitar Gear & Accessories section of the forums.

EDIT:

Presence: Increases or decreases the frequency range of the treble knob- basically, low presence sounds like you have a blanket over your amp, and increasing the presence will sound like you?re gradually removing it.

presence is the range between the treble frequency and the bass frequency.
boosting up the presence will increase your note duration as well as it will increase sustain. ex: for heavy and fast riffs presence is usually down, so that the notes may fade away faster avoiding ressonance.
ex2: for slow and creamy solos you put presence up.

hope that helps you

Not even close.

The others pretty much got it in saying it's a step above treble, but I don't know if the "blanket" analogy is such a good one, sonically. It sort of controls the amount of bite in your tone, so to say.

The "Blanket" thing is confusing, I never explain it like that to people.
TS, and anyone else, should just know it's the frequency above treble.

It is specifically 4 kHz to 6 kHz.

http://www.recordingeq.com/EQ/req0400/OctaveEQ.htm


The Presence Range

"Although this range covers a mere half-octave of 4 kHz to 6 kHz, it is an often-used band of frequencies. This range makes most vocals and melody instruments sound closer and more distinct. Over-boosting causes a irritating and harsh sound. Equalization centers around 5 kHz."


You see it on acoustic stuff more than electric guitar amps.
