Mig 50 on clean channel, I (the "bassman" channel, cause fuck bright "plexi" channel II), everything dimed, volume wherever, cause its all clean, presence rolled back to about 3-4.
Dirt pedals and guit tone knobs do the tone shaping.
I used to fuck with eq so much on other amps with graphic and parametric and blah, blah, blah. Then I just decided, "fuck it". Best tone I've ever had.

I set it typically so it sounds oood with a Jaguar or Mustang, all ugly sparkly switches on. Set so it's a nice, traditional Fender BF clean but not icepicky.

I control the tone with picking dynamics/position, the tone knob on the gutar/switches, and pedals from there - cutting to rhythm circuit on the guitar nets a very dark jazzbox tone which I am AOK with.

I do about the same with my orange treble at round 11, bass round 2 or 1, hf at 9

I have a relatively bright guitar compared to other gibsons at some setting so I try to definitely mitigate that at times. I also I play sludgy math rock so I don't play in all that low of a tuning so bassist setting are best for me

I usually start with everything at noon, and then end up boosting my mids significantly. I run my mids on my Musket at 3 o clock, and about the same on my amp. I like me some mids.

On guitar: Generally set the bass high enough that it sounds cool but low enough that palm muting is nice and chuggy. I roll the treble up just before it starts to hurt. The mids are sort of wild card but generally I seem to match the mids with the treble setting.

On bass: Boost the bass and treble, cut the mids between 500 and 2000 hz.

I keep my amps flat, and as clean as possible, trying for very little breakup
I may add a little bass or treble depending on the room
I don't often bump mids but I very rarely play with bass players and usually just with hand percussion so cutting through isn't a problem

yesterday I played with a trumpet a flute and a violin, so being bass heavy was actually pretty useful

I've got my Verellen set up to be completely clean, prescence around 6, lows around 6-7, mids and highs at 5, MV around 3 and gain around 1. That's just apartment life.
I was screwing around with my Sovtek last night with high gain, so the volume was around 8, master around 1 (hahah), eq set up the same way, prescence the same way.

depends on what amp, what i'm playing (musically and instrument-wise) and who i'm playing with.

with my band, i try really hard to fit in without overpowering the bass so i typically cut the bass a bit and slightly boost treble. i like my "clean" to be slightly dirty so the preamp gain is up a bit as well. other than that i generally tend towards a more flat EQ with no reverb. depends though! when playing out i always check how things sound in the room, since there are always weird bass traps, hollow stages, reflective surfaces, etc.

edit: when i play guitar at the shop, i usually go for as flat a response as i can get out of my fender twin, with a bit of reverb added.

^That's a good point, when I play with a band I always up the mids and treble to fit in the mix better, and some rooms are weird and need strange settings.
