Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Osama_Spears, Mar 22, 2003.


  1. Hey,I have an Ibanez 10 watt bass combo amp...and I was wondering what "Presence" does...I turned it to 0 and nothing happened,then I turned it to 10 and the sound is no different at 0....

    Can anyone help a loser newbie like me?:p

    thanks!

  2. From what I have heard, you can only really tell when playing with other people, like in a band. But I could be wrong

    Presence controls usually affect frequencies higher than what the treble affects.

    If your strings are old, or you use flatwounds or you roll off the highs on your bass or use a really cheap cable, the Presence control may have no effect what so ever.
