I'm currently running my Epi LP Studio through a Cube 30x and I like the sound and all, I just want it to have more of an edge ya know? So anything that could help, I'd prefer to not buy new gear, but if need be I will.

teh cube is pretty bitey anyway, but maybe turn bass down and mids up a bit

or try turning up the mids a bit. ive always found that mids help give that kick chest, as well as helping cut through in a band situation. part of the problem is that what sounds fine by yourself in your room doesnt always work well with a full band. those full band settings have more balls to cut through, but can sound a bit unrefined by themselves.

Most of the "bite" in guitar tone comes from the upper mid-range. 650Hz to 2000Hz. This basicly means turn the mid knob up more. A good mid heavy metal tone setting is bass 5, mid 10, treble 7.

Don't waste your money on an eq pedal for the cube 30x. I have a boss ge-7 and it really doesn't do much for that amp. Like other people suggested try backing off the bass, add some more mids, and keep the treble high. I like that tone on mine.

wrong. again.

problem the EQ, the problem is that you need a tube amp that you can crank.

get an Orange Tiny Terror and a 1x12.

I thought I was weird for having my mids high. Since everyone is always going "SCOOP YOUR MIDS" which I think sounds like shit.

Ugh, of course there's always somebody that ruins all the good help in the thread. He doesn't want to spend any money if he doesn't have to and a TT with a cab isn't cheap. His problem can easily be solved with some EQing.

wrong. the problems are:

1 - you can't form a coherent sentence.

2 - you either didn't read the OP or just ignored it like a dumbass.


TS should try adjusting his EQ as suggested.
if that gets him satisfactory results without buying new gear, great.
if not, then he moves on to a purchase.


... and YOU should go sit in the corner. be sure to put your hat on.

oh, go **** yourself. you understood me, didn't you?

he's asking for more bite, NOT a different tone. if he likes how his amp sounds, that means he likes how the EQ is set.

with a tube amp, and a british voiced one at that, you get more bite because tube amps respond very well to picking dynamics. harder pick attack = MORE BITE.

you can shove your ****ing hat up your ass.

edit: i guess it's a good thing i got reported for flaming.

^ a different amp will give a different tone. in fact, its more likely to give you a much different tone than just changing the eq. you are wrong and need to learn to not throw insults around.

Exactly I boost the mid/high range quite a bit on my amp. Remedies the "thin, shrill" sound that people claim my amp has.

Turn up those mids!

Mids will give you some bite, and grit.

Also, might want to turn up the treble a wee bit too for some bite.
