    Yes, I've definitely low-passed that extreme before (3rd order filter). In general it tends to work better for rock than metal material.

    I like reading with video examples.

    I've been low passing guitars around 7khz and it sounds great for light rock stuff. Never done it for anything heavier, tho...

    It kind of makes sense - the typical guitar speaker will produce up to around 5 or 6khz (V30s go to 5khz, for instance), which implies the tone lies much lower in the frequency range. This may be extremely obvious, but I just realized it :lol:

    Fuck me. That is a brilliant post. For me, as a noob, it explains things in a concise manner. It doesn't offer me instant noodle solutions but it gives me ideas as to where to begin.

    Thank you.

    @Morgan C : ???

    details please

    $5k rig woule make sense with their high-end stuff but $15k makes me wonder if there are diamonds in the knobs or something

    @Ermz : thanks for making those badass guides. I enjoyed both the original posts AND the discussion/debate that ensued. If you took some time to defend your views it's great, but if on some other time you didn't out of laziness/lack of time it's fine also, i mean you just gave us a badass guide to read already, so anything beyond that is hugely appreciated for sure but is just pure bonus IMO !
    (and i love bonusses ! :) )

    I like both reading and videos for tutorials, but in this case i think your guide is a perfect read. Giving examples (how much dB and how much Q for this surgical EQ notch, etc) would be great, but those who want an actual demonstration of this should try these techniques by themselves ! That's the best way to learn.

    I've used this guitar part of the guide several times, and thought it was a good idea to actually buy the thing now. Looking forward to having a good read, Mr. Ermz!
