    Try to use your ears not your eyes-dont worry about where the knobs are set. Also remember a setting that works at low volumes will usually be too bright at moderate /loud volumes. If you push the amp farther into saturation(if its a tube amp) it may once again need more treble. In other words the EQ settings are volume dependent. Bob

    I find that for me, less is more. I don't bond well with amps that have too many settings. A simple amp that sounds great "out of the box" is what I use.

    i'm the same way. i downsized from a mark IV to a budda because of that.

    the problem i'm having now is that i can't figure out how to set the eq and leave it alone.

    Seems like Budda hit it out of the park with their SD series! That's what I traded from an ENGL to and haven't looked back!

    I change my amp's eq settings based upon where I play.
    This pub we play is very boomy in the small space so I pull back on the bass a bit.
    outside I find more bass and mids.
