FDP Forum / Fender Amps: Vintage (before 1985) / Fender tone stack - images of what the mid control does

It might look like I've got too much time on my hands but ... I was trying to track down a track down a harsh little spike in the midrange on my Princeton Reverb II. This is what a spectrum analysis looks like of me playing a clean 3rd fret barred G chord, as consistently as I could on a Mex Strat neck pickup, hile winding down the mid control from 10 to 1. I knew the mid control on a traditional Fender tone stack affects the whole spectrum but I didn't know it did this... (unless there's something wrong with mine!)

For your viewing pleasure....

I'm not a real tech but I'd spray that pot to see if it might be dirty.

More meaningful if you fed some white noise to the input. Plenty of audio samples available on the web.
