Re: Amplified effects chain

Hi Tim and All

One thing to consider, and this comes down to your own perception, is: would
the effects (reverb settings or other) you most often plan to use benefit
from "pre" or "post" eq?. Assuming your preamp has useable eq adjustments.
That is, maybe it sounds better to you to cut X db at X KHz "before" your
signal goes to that reverb setting that has a little to much honk, or maybe
it sounds best to adjust eq after that perfect reverb setting - all other
things being equal.

Best Wishes,
Staggerin' Jim
