Sarah was paying through one Nashville 112 set high up on a stand just behind her.

She was playing through a Boss DD3 delay unit and the amp was miked to the PA system.

The 112 settings were:-
Low +9
Mid -12
Shift 12 noon
High -3
Presence -3
No reverb
Pre Gain +6
Post Gain +6

Hi Clive, thanks for Sarah's amp settings. I found the +9 bass and the no reverb surprising and the master gain setting is usual higher than that of the pre-gain to avoid distortion, did you hear Sarah playing these settings and did it sound good to you.? Cheers, James.

Hi James

Yes, I got the settings straight after Sarah's first set on the Saturday. She actually read them out to me.

Her sound was excellent as was her set.

Sarah's settings are very close to Paul Franklins and I checked them out and they are very good. Randy Beavers settings are quite different and they too sound very good.

Guy's it must be me,because when I use those settings, my guitar has a muddy sounding tone to it.It does not have that clean sweet bright mid range sound.The highs sound ok,but from the 5th string to the 10th string
it sounds muddy.I am using a Nashville 1000,and a Emmons LeGrande II. I find myself wanting to pull the mid's to the plus side.Any thoughts or comments welcome.

Is she still playing the EMCI or has she switched to the Mullen?

Also -- Jerry
We may be reading the numbers differently but from what Bob Snelgrove posted
quote:
Paul played through 2 Peavy 112's at the show using only a reverb pedal (RV-5?)

The settings on the snakeskin amp were:

Pre 5, bass "-7", mid "-5", shift "2 o'clock", high 6, presence "-6", reverb 1 3/4, gain 5.

Tone and playing was unreal

bob


Sounds like very different settings to me
Paul CUTS the bottom and BOOSTS the top
Sarah does the opposite, from what I'm reading.

Personally, I don't like the way any of my guitars sound with EITHER of those settings, but that's just me.

Yeah Larry, you are right of course. It has been a while since I saw Pauls settings. I tried them and liked them and I also liked Randy Beavers settings which were very different. I think the thing that was embedded in my mind was the fact that Paul and Sarah used more highs then cut them back by cutting the presence and to my thinking it is more conventional to cut the highs and bring them out with more presence. I think Paul has always used a much higher treble setting than most but somehow took the raw edge off with either the presence control, his touch or maybe both. I have tried Randy's, Paul's and Sarah's settings and though they are very different they are all very good. I think it is just a fine little amp. I have retired 3 Webbs and 3 Evans in favor of the Nashville 112, the '74 Session 400 and the 65 Standels, not necessarily in that order.

Wow! We have similar taste in amps. The Standels are always first call for me, though.

Hi all, having tried both Sarah and Paul's 112 settings I've gone back to what is to my ears a far cleaner and more expressive sound in those settings used by Buck Reid.(as per the Peavey website )Because of the high settings on the pre and post gains a very delicate right foot is essential.The amount of controllable sustain with just a 1/2" movement of the volume pedal is just perfect.
