View Full Version : Another EQ Thread

11-23-2004, 10:39 PM
Okay, this is most likely my best chance at getting some help:

I'm seeking some tones of certain artists...now before I continue, here is my current setup:

Fender/Squier Bullet LTD (Duncan Invader <humbucker> and one volume)
Yamaha Pacifica Pac012 (H/S/S w/ One volume and One tone knob)
Gibson ES-333 Remake (Semi-hollow w/ 2 humbucker sized single coils and 2 volumes, 2 tones and toggle switch)

Line 6 Spider II 150watt halfstack

The amp is solid state and models amps such as:
Marshall (current+vintage)
Fender (current+vintage)
Vox (current)
Mesa Triple Rectifer
Mesa Dual Rectifer

And a few of which I can't remember.

By the way the amp has drive, bass, mid, treble, chan vol, master volume, reverb, also: flange/chorus, phaser, tremolo, delay, tape echo, and sweep echo.

The tones I am seeking is:

Senses Fail (clean+dist. rhythm+lead)
The Early November (clean+dist. rhythm+lead)
Finch (clean+dist. rhythm+lead)

And another tones would be much appreciated
esp. tones that are good for melodic, emo, pop-punk, metal, and ska.

If you cant help with any of those tones any tones at all would be appreciated.

P.S. Please give tones in this fashion:
Bass - insert number here
Treble - Insert number here
Mid - Insert number here

Please don't give vague answers.

Thank you all for your time! :chug: :smoke: :thumb:

Ok, the only one of those bands i've actually heard of is Finch and they seem to be quite 'emo-ish' yeah?

If so, then for overdriven sounds these kind of bands usually 'scoop' the mids out of their sound by basically just not using the 'middle' EQ at all (don't set it at any higher than 2!) and using the humbuckers on their guitars for lead lines and the neck pick-ups for rhythm.

So, for clean rhythm (neck pick-ups) try:
Bass - 9
Middle - 2
Treble - 7

For lead (humbuckers) try the same. If you find it's a bit 'muddy' then turn the bass down a bit and increase the treble.

Sorry I can't really help you more than that as i'm unfamiliar with your set up. Best advice i can give you is just to listen to these bands and try and work something out for yourself :thumb:
