Hi. Garage type of band. Two Kempers, both of us are maily using humbucker Gibson guitars. I'm a blues/early rock guy. My mate dials in early 80's rock and ha likes a lot of mid eq. We have tried at great number of high quality Rigs. Tried different guitars, P90, active passive mics.
We go main out to a Allen & Heath QU-16. IEM is a low budget Shure and we use Shure earplugs, and I'v tried a couple off headphones as well. - The strange thing is that both guitars is extremely trebley, we turn down presences to -3,6 or lower, treble is turned down to - 3.0 or lower. Pure cab is off on one KPA and turn way up on the other. We tried to eq the mixer but that kills the vocals. Is it normal to have to turn down almost all treble and presence on the guitars. -Monitor out/guitar cab sound is ok. Any help would be much appreciated.
