Sorry if this is a duplicate topic. I realize this preamp has been around for a long while now, but I'm looking for tone suggestions for my Alembic F1X. I've looked on the Alembic forum and they suggest 2-9-2 (bass, mid, treble), but that isn't getting it done for me. currently I'm running 2-2-4 with both the bright and bass boost switches up and the volume 5 or above to drive the tube a little. This is OK, but I'm looking for other suggestions/experiences. This is my outdoor rig (running a Carvin HT750 into a 6x10. I'm kind of after an SVT tone, but suspect without a pedal I'm not going to get there because Alembic is not really driving that tube too much. what do you all think?
