  1. Just wondering how everyone sets up their EQs for different styles of music, ran a little search and i didn't find much so i'll just be all direct an ask.

    How would you set up your amps EQ for.....?

    Soft rock

    I tend to mess around with my EQ settings too much.. any advice? I've got a few gigs (metal/hard rock) coming up soon and i really wanna cut through the mix better. Guitarist is using a les paul and a marshall 60 watt 2x12 with mids cut. Is there a way i can get through this or do i just have to hit him (by accident, of course) till he changes his mind?

    Thanks for any advice :)

    I've found some really interesting ideas in the owner's manuals of SWR amps.

    Go to and find a link for manuals. The manual for my Bass 350 opened my eyes to the benefits of a slight boost at 200 Hz to cut through in a rock band.
