    I always though thick and fat tone was boosted mids and low mids and reduced treble to get a very warm sound.

    However I saw in another thread someone saying the soldano SLO 100 is thick, and I have one and its very bright with no low mids built in at all.

    so what is your definition of thick? defintition of fat? and then warm?

    I though they were the same kinda

    also list your amp and how you have EQ controls so we can visually see.

    I will go first

    When I think 'thick' my old Soldano Decatone always comes to mind first. Of course the Emi Cannibus Rex speakers probably helped too.

    The SLO with the Depth mod and KT66s can get thick. In it's natural state, it's pretty thin.

    The Beano record. That's thick and fat to me. Warm? I would say almost any real power tube distortion is pretty warm (that I've heard); 6l/v6's, kt66,el34/84. They all sound really different but I think there's a "warmth" in all of them when cranked. It's just really hard for me to describe the way something sounds with words. It's a needed evil but it's corrupt from the start.
