    I've always kept the EQ on my amp flat, because I use a Preamp Pedal. I've heard that otherwise, it is "double stacking" eq's. Is this conventional wisdom, or are there no hard and fast rules. What do others do?

    Use EQ in whatever combination works in a particular situation.

    You might want to ignore the source of the 'double stacking' information in the future.

    Just use understanding that you have 2 points of control. Either one, or both are fine but my general advice is to use as little as possible to get the results you need.
