So where is everyone placing the Eq's in the chain.  Ie before or after the amp.  Which seems to work best for you?

They are more pronounced the later they are in your chain.


i.e., a hi/lo pass before your amp acts a lot like a tubescreamer's tone knob, but at the very end, it's more of a hi-fi effect.


fwiw, I've found the pre w/ hi/lo pass before an amp model + tweeks to the mic/cab choice & cab response keeps me from having to use 3 EQ's throughout *most* of my tones.


meambobbo, thanks for the link, that's awesome!
