I listened to the band for the first time. Man that is some weirdo stuff.
Just when I was thinking MY amp settings are fucked up. This one beats everything
Worst n00b introduction ever. As we discussed in this thread, those settings are REALLY FUCKING NORMAL.
I don't care what anyone says about BMTH, "Chelsea Smiles" is a fucking heavy song.
Many peoples use maxed resonance on 6505...and scooped mids on a 5150 is like another amp with mids at noon.
It depends on the sound you want but mids at 3-4 is pretty normal. Andy uses mids at 2 also.
Its only the low presence thats suprised me
I wasn't quite surprised with that actually, because BMTH is quite bassy. but the lack of mids surprised me...
1. Shitty thread ressurection pt2.
2. Have you never played a 5150??? Fucking middiest amps ever.
Since the thread has already been ressurrected, I gotta +100 to that.
no....he is right:
Duck tape is a brand of Duct tape.
The duck on the packaging is so cute
Isn't it Mr. 20k?
nothing weird about those settings at all for me, similar to the "KSE settings"
over the past year that I have had my 5150 I have been dialing it in constantly, including with eq's in the fx loop and finally ripped everything out of the fx loops and found a killer tone that gave me the best results for recording, and when its opened up to full volume roars like a motherfucker live.
mine is actually:
Post: 1.5-2/3.5 (recording/live)
very natural setting honestly, the resonance all the way up is defeating the high pass filter (having the resonance anything less than 10 is acting as a high pass filter), and most amps don't even have a res, like the rectifiers, they just "cranked up the resonance to 10 and broke off the knob". As mid heavy as the 5150/6505 is, you have to compensate by scooping the mids and screaming the lows just to get it on the same playing field as any other amp. If you have a problem with there being too much bass, that means you are in a poorly treated room, just turn down the resonance knob until it goes away. If you have a good room, that thing can be up all the way.
EDIT: Just took a listen to BMTH, their albums tone sound within the ballpark of the setting posted.
What looks weird to me is the treble being that low on a live situation...I have to keep mine at 6 with presence up there too or it won't compete with the other instruments.
That's just my experience though, and strictly talking about a rehearshal situation...live we all know highs get boosted due to the venues response, and about recording...yeah I'd prefer to keep high end and mids tamed, as this amp is mid city
Fucking hate BMTH
and Duct/Duck/Gaffer tape for every win... ever...
if it isn't the answer, you're asking the wrong question
I saw them live last year and it sounded like scooped shit
i think theres so many secret in amps and cab, i'd prefer not to trust the knob.
