...Howdy all. I'm trying to dial in a "vintage" tone with my new amp/cab setup and thought y'all could share some helpful tips. I'll be using a Peavey 450 Max head with an Avatar B212 cabinet. I got a decent tone right away the first time I played with it, but that was playing solo. Last night at band practice, I struggled all night and made almost constant litle adjustments to the EQ, even in the middle of songs. We're playing mostly 70s-era classic rock, ala Bad Company, Deep Purple, etc. I like a warm, wooly bass tone. Playing alone, I started out by turning the tweeter down to 9:00, and set the amp's "contour" knob at zero. Then I boosted the bass about 3dB, the mids more robustly, maybe around 9dB, and cut the treble by about 9dB. Setting the preamp gain at 3:00 and the master volume gave me a solid tone that I liked a lot. But with the band, it became apparent that more adjustments were needed, especially in relation to the mids-to-treble, volume-to-distortion, and volume-to-clipping relationships. When I stepped on my overdrive pedal, the relationships got even more confusing and required even more tweaking. I want to sit in the mix right between the kick drum and the guitar, so what kind of EQ tips can you supply me? I'm clueless as far as which frequencies represent which notes, etc. Thanks in advance, Roger PS: One thing's for sure, this cabinet rocks! I may end up upgrading the amp, but I think the Avatar is staying.
