picked up a ('91 or '93) Fender Super 60 VERY cheap on the www, and took it to rehearsal yesterday... after 10 minutes all pedals except my H2O (delay) were disconnected: I had it on the "lead" channel all the time
settings: gain 10:30 vol 09:00 high 02:00 mid 02:00 bass 10:30 reverb 03:00 (!) presence OFF
I just used my guitar volume to go from clean to (serious) drive, never even missed my OD pedal
Putting the reverb this high has a weird side effect that I kind of liked: you have great "Fender" reverb when you take the volume down, then when I turned up and really dug in for solo's, it tende to give me some kind of "slapback" delay, as if the reverb "couldn't follow"

all in all - I was in tone heaven all evening! :):):)

Awright,jaybee! It's so good when you fall in love with a new purchase; beats the hell outa bein' disappointed with it & feelin' like you wasted the money. You gotcher whole life to play with the settings on it.

great amp.

most players dont know how to use the guitar vol to control the amp. most players play wide open hence the mono tone all nite long.

I like the way fenders respond to guitars vol and pick attack to add some umph to vary the tone.

It's good practice with any amp and guitar, IMO, to set it up for what you want it to sound like full blast and with the tone at its brightest, then use the guitar controls to keep it down as needed.

I'd have to agree. I tend to play wide open, although being a classic rock guy that works, but when I play blues, I have found I can get a variety of interesting tones when I back off on the volume pot. Messing with the tone control yields some interesting results as well.

Well, they're ignorant. You'll have to show them.
