Hia all,

I know this is mostly personnal, but just wondering how you guys like to set your Wizard (EQ/setting wise)

In my opinion, all amps seems to have some sweet spot, for certain things.
For instance, the SLO really shines when you put the Presence at 7 (and this is even according to Mike himself).

Just wondering in regards to Wizards, what settings do you like yours! :rock:

Thought, I will add to me thread here, to help future MC / MCII owner.

One of the key aspect, that really changes the character of the amp, in my opinion is the brightness knob, behind.
To put it very briefly, I find that it makes the amp sound a bit more plexisssh if the knob is before noon, and more JCM 800 "bright" when past 12 o'clock.

The bright knob on back is the ticket :thumbsup: I really like contour knob on the MCII too :yes: I usually play with mids up 1-3 o'clock, presence 9-11 o' clock, bass 11- noon, treble 8-9 o'clock.

Every Wizard I had was a little different and liked a little different eq depending on my setup.
