Seemed to me that it sounds great with the mids cranked and made my pedals sound better. Anybody else dime their mids on the jaz or any other z amp for that matter and like the results? It seemed to me that I got a sweeter tone and hit the sweet spot with treble and bass at lower volumes and a better over all guitar mix. Id never have thought that mids cranked and treble and bass lower would make such a huge tonal difference for the better.

I definitely like the mids bumped up. Mikes idea of cranking everything up is a good one and sounds great. Very Twin-ish. For a while I was thinking of the mid knob as treble and the treble knob as presence. In that case I like the mid knob high or max and the treble low and bass knob real high. Then I tried Mikes "full monty" setting and really liked that. Then I tried... Well you get the point. Its all good. My favorite amp of all time.
I go through phases with my tone settings. I used to max the tone controls on my JAZ and then decrease the treble control until it seemed to be right with whatever guitar I was using currently. If I needed boosted mids I did it with my Paisley Drive which is what TS type pedals do well. Now I seem to be running the treble and bass around 10:00 with the mid WFO and I don't use pedals as much with that amp.

GuitarZ: Best Pandemic Comment - Delivery guy shows up. As we're social distancing, I look at myself in brown loafers, black socks, gym shorts, t-shirt and say "I realize this is not my best look". His response "You can wear whatever you want to the apocalypse."
