I just pick up a cheap Danelectro Fish and Chips 7 band EQ to full around with. I currently have a cheapo Marshall SS amp (unless you are a total newbie - do not buy). Ten minutes and what a difference. Still not a tube amp. But it put some nice body back into the tone at low volume. You know, I should take a picture of the settings and post it. It's the best way to 'explain it'.
