Today during band practice i did something i never thought i'd have to do, i finally turned my amp up to 10. I do keep my pre gain at 2, but after that it starts distorting. I run my bass pod into my amp, it has the bass about 6.6, mid about 4.5, and high at 10, and i use a musicman copy. I have a 4 ohm peavey 4x10 and the amp head is an older peavey guitar amp head, i leave the controls flat on it, with a slight boost on the 600 hz frequency. I'm just telling ya all what i do so you guys don't say "well try boosting your mids", when i do boost my mids it starts to sound kinda of "farty". Does anyone have a good suggestiong of an amp, about 500 watts at 4 ohms, with a graphic EQ? Any info is appreciated, thanks in advance.
