Cub 12r Mids?

Postby Bluthos » Thu Jun 22, 2017 2:27 am

As I stated in my first post, I'm new to tube amps and new to Laney in general (saw them in early Sleep photos, how can I go wrong?).
I love this amp, but I'm finding it's a little thin in the mid neighborhood.
Can anyone suggest an affordable pedal or EQ settings on the amp itself to make the Mids jump back in?

Any seasoned users with additional other tips and tricks when it comes to this amp?
Thanks in advance!

I've got a 12R, and for my use I find it has plenty of midrange. I play classic and hard rock. I have the mids set at 8, bass at 6 and treble at 4 or 5. The master tone knob is at 8.

If you can't get what you want from the amp you could try an overdrive pedal with a midrange boost like a Tubescreamer. Some boost pedals would allow you to increase the mids, or you just use a graphic EQ pedal.

First of all....I never had Cub , but based on other Labey's amps I have that might be a speaker. Don't know what speaker you have..HH or other. Also if I remember well there was few posts in the past about speaker in Cub12. But my first move would be to change a speaker.
