Tone controls -- assuming you're ok with them, when would you try them?
Totally love the tone controls on my c-900 pre-amp; Completely transparent and takes rock performances to another level--far more enjoyable than flat; An interesting thing I noticed is that at higher levels and with a modest boost (3-6 dB on the b...
