Convention, hype, and a confused amp tech’s handwriting have mucked up the exact nature of the Presence control settings on the Dual Rectifier 3 Channel amp. For the non-geeks, I will say what the real nature is and then dive into detail afterward.

The Clean is about what I use normally with the tube rectifier and sounds good with the other settings. The Soundgarden setting in Channel 2 is based on Fell On Black Days (turn your guitar volume down) and Let Me Drown. It’s more of a setting for Cornell, since he did the rhythm on his songs and Outshined sounds pretty good on it, too. Channel 3 sounds pretty close to Tool’s Stinkfist, H, 46+2, and Third Eye. All the channels compliment each other pretty well and would work as a basis for finding a personal tone.
Let me know what you think of this.
