    Is the EQ active? If so, start with the Bass, Middle and Treble in the center (indicator pointing up) and adjust from there. Presence is an active control and is boost only, start with that turned all the way down.

    After you get a decent tone, you can add distortion if you want to.

    The volume control should be all the way up...no wait, that was the last band I was in...

    Have fun!!!!
