    On a purely unrelated note, subjectivity: how the blue **************** does it work?
    The community here was awesome but the digs & spirit of the place has been in decline ever since it became a business venture rather than a simple collective and this latest gong show really brought the chickens home to roost.Necessity is the mother of invention, ergo: www.guitarampboard.com.So long and thanks for all the fish, love izzy.

      Lol, I'd say pretty much all of them?





      I've never come across an amp that didn't, anyway.

        I'm gonna say very few 'cept some solid state bass amps that were designed to be "flat" at "120 high" or center . Most geetar amps are interactive tone stacks some with added presence controls . Bring in the acoustics of the room and you'll see probably most of them are not set at noon .

          Why does it matter?



          If you could have an amp that sounds good with all the knobs at noon, or an amp that sounds amazing with the knobs in totally random settings?

              It depends on the guitar, and part, and song, and room, and opinion of good.

                Quick Rod. You can set the EQ anywhere, and get a good usable tone from it, almost impossible to make it sound "bad" unless you suck period.

                          Many old Marshalls sound more or less the same no matter how you tweak the knobs. They do however sound pretty nice

                            This is what I came here to say, QR is perfect with everything at 5.

                              Whenever I test out new amps I always put the eq to 12 noon. Play it for a little while then I fiddle with the knobs a little bit. I find that doing it this way gives the best representation of the amps tone.
