This is a great write-up. I have found that the "Custom" EQ sounds perhaps a little better in some settings (depending on what sound you are going for), but I always wire my vox amps up with the classic EQ - sometimes you just want that top boost strangeness in there. For those of you who have no idea what we're talking about, get Duncan's tonestack calculator and turn the Bass and Treble up to max, you'll see a huge notch filter around 500 Hz or so. I've ran an EQ into a Marshall DSL401 with the 500Hz band at minimum and it sounded very "voxish." Nice work, Bartimaeus!
