    What exactly are the frequencies for the LH-3 Bass/Mid/Treble, and how much boost/cut?

    Thanks.

    Thanks but that doesn't say anything about WHICH frequency is being boosted/attenuated.

    It only shows the midrange dipswitch settings.

    I must have read too quick, I thought you were looking for just the different midrange frequencies. Sorry!

    No problem!

    Just curious what the Bass and Treble controls do exactly. I love the LH-3 but it's helpful when pairing with my Tone Hammer Pre/DI.

    Bass is at 150. Treble I either is 3 or 3.5 khz, can't remember for sure. Mid, by default, is 600hz. I think it's 12dB boost/cut.

    Thanks a bunch.

    That definitely helps, but makes sense why I'm not a fan of the Bass and Treble frequency boosts.

    IMO they encroach too heavily on the Low Mid and High Mid ranges to be super usable.

    Still, flat, a GREAT sounding preamp, so I can't complain too much.

    It all depends on what you're after. I love those frequency points. They are very musical and let you add girth or clarity without the instrument getting to boomy or sizzly.

    FWIW, if you're trying to get a more modern sound out of the LH3, one good option is to set the mid control at the 900 hz setting, and use it to cut mids. This brings out the open bottom and sizzly top of the preamp without having to dial those controls up very high.
