    Default anyone with a 5150 III

    my second new thread of the day, but ive found some cool stuff!

    this is a photo of ed's new 5150 at the party for Sacred Sin's release a while back, and it looks like they got his personal settings on it. can anyone with a 5150 III try this out?

    You don't want Ed's personal settings from that gig..or anything he played in 2006 or 2005 or 2004.

    His tone at that party from the clips I've heard wasn't that great.

    The only scoops I know of are the ones I receive when I head to Baskin Robbins...other than that...I can't help ya.

    I know nothing about this sort of EQ stuff.

    scooping just means removing some of the midrange gain, which gives you more of a metal tone.

    i prefer the baskin robbins scoops, myself.

    I had posted another thing about Ed's tone this morning, but this is the perfect forum. The answer is Ed's mids, at least on his Peavey 5150's were usually always set around "2". Again, this is from a head honcho that handled the certified dealer repair center applications. I was surprised when I was purchasin mine when they first came out given everything I had read about Ed's setteing in the past. On his Marshalls they were always on 10 because when you crank a Marshall everything kinda evens out at clipping. Proof that the 5150 is quite a different animal.
    She looks so $#@!'n good ,so sexy and so frail....Somethin's got the bite on me, I'm goin' straight to Hell.
