    What frequency does this control cut? I did a search but can't find anything.
     
  2. High frequencies. It's not so much of a specific treble cut (as in an active bass), but it does mostly cut high frequencies using a capacitor.

    but in my experience, the tone control seems to affect your attack, more than a noticeable change in tone.

    Attack meaning the sharpness or amount of definition, in the way the note begins (sorry if that is a dumbed down explanation).

    If you want a soft attack you turn it down, if you want a hard attack turn it up.

    (okay, just read Joey's explanation. Makes more sense than mine.)
