this may seem like a stupid question.i'm getting a mxr eq pedal. my question is what do i set my amps bass, mid and treble knob to if i'm using an eq pedal? do i turn them all the way down?thanks.
keep it at what you usually keep them at then adjust the eq pedal to what you want more or less of, if you dont like the results of that then put all the knobs at 12 o clock and adjust the pedal.
i used to be a mod, then i took an arrow in the knee.
Set them where they sound the best to you with the pedal off, then tweak with the mxr. If you use the mxr for all your tone then you'll be boosting the frequencies a lot and it'll get noisy.

edit: damn, beat me to it.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not
