    When I had one, a lot of us seemed to have similar settings, +/- a skosh.

    In o'clocks:
    Top row: 11, 2, 11
    Bot row: 11, 12, 1

    Nice, tried them out and they're fantastic. Any more options to share?

    Schweet! You switched out the knobs eh.

    yeah Brett, good idea. If I gigged I think I'd have to do that. The TZ looks really cool, but in my music room, I keep a small flashlight right next to my board because I do several things with mine and I can't see the knobs well enough to return to prior settings without shinning the flashlight on them. The black ones look good on it.

    Yeah, I looked at if for about an hour and thought "cool. . .shiny!!. . ." Then I went and ordered some new knobs on line. Much more practical and instantly easy to make quick changes.

    I'm tempted to take a Dremel to the chrome knobs, make a notch, file it out and use some black paint, but that seems like too much work.

    Oh, and with those settings, all I ever really have to do is to back off the mids control to go from warm mids to modern scooped mids. I really like this pedal!

    Seriously great pedal. Congrats

    try some of these YMMV

    setting similar to the CB (crunch box) sound:

    mids - 3 or 4:00
    character - 7:00

    Character 11:00
    Volume - 1:00-2:00

    MIDS - 2:30
    CHARACTER - 0
    VOLUME - 10:30
    TONE - 1:00
    DRIVE - 3:00

    Bright 9:00
    Mid 2:30
    Char 11:00
    Volume 10:00
    Tone 10:00
    Drive 2:30

    Bright - 5:00
    Mid - 3:00
    Character - 11:00

    Great pedal,i love mine. Had two at one time...

    To simplify my life,I keep the Bright & Character knobs off;then I just tweak Tone & Mids.

    I changed out the chrome knobs,too.
