  1. Bought a Peavey 158 Max 20 watt x 8 inch,wanting some helpfull advice on settings for Trans-Tube best distrotion settings Bass,High,Mids ? Would like to know what Phsyco-Acoustic means advice on settings for that ? And all around recommendation for Bass,Meds,Highs for Classic Rock,Funk Slap styles ? I am unable to perceive differences of musical pitch accurately due to hearing loss. thank you. peavey.
  2. I deleted what I wrote after I reread your post. Sorry about your hearing loss. That’s hard to say without knowing what you hear. On my amp I like tone controls pretty flat which is 12oclock. A small bass boost sometimes or if I’m playing a Jazz Bass, maybe, but I usually eq from the Bass. I also sometimes boost mids for something more Jaco or Rocco oriented.
  3. Agree with above.
    As a generalisation....
    Boost lows n highs for slap & cut a little mids

    Possibly boost a little mids for rock
