    I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell
    Just wondering how you dial your amp in for your sound & style of music. I play mostly classic hard rock and shoot for a tone somewhere between AC/DC & Aerosmith (sort of...lol)
    I use a USA Millennium 5er w/nickel round wounds, usually run both pups on & on board EQ flat with a plus bump on the Bass knob.

    Here are my amp settings:

    Input pad: on (for active electronics)

    Volume: 10 o'clock (red clip only flashes when I really dig in on the low notes)

    Compression: 10 o'clock

    Contour: 10:30

    Bass: 2 o'clock

    Low Mid: 12 o'clock - Frequency @ 9:30 = around 400Hz?

    High Mid: 12 o'clock - Frequency @ 7 o'clock = 800Hz

    Treb: 12 o'clock

    Horn: -6 db

    Master Vol: as needed ( I have never run it past 12 o'clock though)

    What are your settings?
