    Can somebody explain to me what contour is? Is it like a mid-control only backwards or what? I'm just playing my little Crate practice amp and it was sounding crappy so I turned down some mids and I put the contour at about 1:30. The lowest setting is 500Hz and the highest is 1.2kHz. Thanks for the help.

    it basically scoops mids or boosts highs/lows

    So if I turn it down, I get more of a scoop?
