    i have an ampeg BA-110 amp and it has a button on it called "contour". i thought it was like an overdrive for bass but it doesnt really do anything when i push it except buzz louder. would anyone know what this is for? thanks!:D

    Well anyone can 'help' someone by answering their question but it takes a special kind of person to completely undermine any answers given. :)

    thanks guys for the advice.. i think thats what it is! now if i only had a pedal...:rolleyes:
  9. Contour switch, Maybe it activates the style selector? the amp has two inputs right, one active and one passive? Could you give us more stats on the amp?.. Or better yet downlaod the user manual for it @ <a href="http://www.ampeg.com">ampeg</a>

    thats right. theres no such thing as EQ. its all just a myth to drum up business for amp manufacturers. :rolleyes:

    I would say watch out. If you start sprouting hairs on your tongue, you know to stop using that button immediately. And I do mean immediately.
