    I use an overdrive (mids bump) and I run the preamp with a lot of mids and highs, so I pinch out some mids with the GEQ in the FX Loop. This method drives the mids hard in the amp making them overdrive and crunch up, but the GEQ's position in the FX Loop means you can control their loudness.

    I pull down the ultra lows and ultra highs, and pinch out the middle, and slightly boost between them to compensate. It looks like an "M"

    Kind of hard to say how to set up an EQ given it depends on how the amp sounds and how you want it to. My suggestion is to pull each band up and down all the way, see how they affect the tone, and get better at identifying what frequencies you find either too much or not enough in the base tone. That way you can effectively EQ any amp and any tone.


    Or just do the smiley-face. That always works.

    Yeah, the key is really just to spend some time with it. GEQ's out in front of your amp are pretty powerful, but are even more powerful in your FX Loop. Set it flat, and start tweaking very small tweaks
