My favorite setting for today is Volume one @ 8.5, treble @ 8, bass @ 1.5 pulled, mid @7, master 1.5 pulled, LD @ 5.5, LM @8, presence @ 7. MetalRock tone. Tomorrow might be different with the LD higher, Channel one lower. I always
seem to adjust the GEQ every time I play, from a mild V to an M to a deep V for a Marshall/Fender tone. That's where you get the amp's feel
from. These amps are organic, not bionic, and sound different everyday, they're alive inside, either that or atmospheric conditions affect it more than other amps. Also the tubes you use will matter in tone timber and how the sound jumps out. The right tube in V1, they all like a particular one, and the amp will leave a grin on your face you can't wipe off!
Oh yeah, I almost forgot - the amp needs to warm up for at least 20 minutes before it starts to thicken up. After an hour or two it'll ooze with tone. I was just messing with my amp and already the settings are a little different because I changed the pick up in my guitar.
