This is from my MXR. Should be applicable to whatever you have.Looking for tips/suggestions on setting up a 10 band eq. i always seem to make my sound worse LOL so any help is appreciated and I hope everyone is having a good sunday
The tone stacks on most classic tube amps are such that 10 is actually zero, and any thing below that is -1 to -10.Subtract, don't add.
This is what old-schoolers will tell you.
Of course, as guitar-players we know better, which is that everything sounds better on "10".
I used to use an EQ all the time. Mostly to adjust for certain "rooms".But eventually decided it was a tone sucking device. While it works to enhance or degrade certain freq's, it also seems to take away some good.
Setup: Set all sliders flat.
Play each string some and find which slider effects that string's notes the most. Maybe put a piece of tape on the unit and mark it for now.
Listen and decide what you want more of. just try tweaking some a bit.
