What is the definition of "Presence" in relation to the Firehawk (FH)


Recommended Posts

It's modeling the presence knob on a guitar amp. The presence knob on a guitar amp is basically a boost of the upper mid-range frequencies, but there's no universally accepted definition of how it's implemented. It varies on a model-per-model basis. This is a quick overview:


Basically, turning it up tends to give you more "bite" or clarity. Turn it up too much, and it can get fizzy, at least on some models.

Phil, thanks for the clarification.  Being a harmonica player, I would probably set it lower since the harmonica is such a bright instrument already and I try to cut a lot of the mids and highs anyway.  I guess it's all subjective to what your ear hears, eh?
