I find this to be VERY helpful: http://ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=688660

Since it's kind of a long topic, just press CTRL and F on your keyboard, and then type in the name of the band or artist, and it will find it for you. It has a lot of guitarists though, so it should have what you're looking for.

I think it controls noise higher pitched than treble. Not all amps have it, but I don't think it's TOO important.

Lol, treble isn't a pitch. He means higger frequancies than treble... and yes it does control that. When you have more prescence it gives a crisp sound to your tone. I don't like to have much... but in a band situation it is good to have at least a little.

I hate how amp companies name their eq's different. It makes me confused. Anyways I play with virtually no effects specially for Blues(maybe reverb) and Metal (distortion) (low bass) (high highs)

League: There's not that many different terms for bass, middle, treble and presence. Some (usually smaller) amp companies use gimmicky terms though.

Guitar Geek is useful. Has the rigs (guitars, pedals, amps) of lots of guitarists, so you can see what gear they use.

ms stands for millisecond. There are 1000 milliseconds in one second, so 310 milliseconds is 0.31 seconds. Delay is an effect which is very much like an echo, so every 0.31 secs a new echo is produced. There are also feedback controls which control how many repeats there are, and a level control to control the volume level of the delayed signal. If you want a song that uses delay to get an idea of the sound, check out the very start of Welcome to the Jungle by GnR.

That is hard to describe. I had a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe for a while and fell it love with the presence. It made everything sound so bright and fat. I was able to get this crunch clean tone out of it. I sure miss that amp :(

Tone is what you hear pithc is the note tone is what you hear...
all guitar's open A string is an A 110(meaning that it vibrates at 110 mhz) the quality of the sound resulting from that pitch is tone

first thing make sure your guitar is cranked to 10. It is a touchy amp but if you don't crank the guitar you will not get much gain. I thought this amp had too much gain, and seldom went into the 2nd gain stage. You have to tinker with it to get the sound you want but i think it was a great amp. when i can get my hands on one again i'm all over it.

A is at 440hz. Pitch (musical term for frequency) is the note by it self without any other elements. Most people refer to "tone" as the quality of the sounds. i.e. When John plays the low A on his amp, we get a muddy sound. The different tones are due to different factors in the environment and/or instrument.

For getting you settings just right, I would suggest using your own ear. Mess around with knobs, listening for the tone you're looking for. You'll gain experience with listening and might even get a boost in pride if you do it on your own. Just requires a little effort listening for what you want.

TheUndying,
try tinkering with your E.Q. and distortion levels. Does it sound too dull? Or is it too bright sounding, or is there a lot of bass giving you muddy distortion? If you still can't get enough "bite" out of the hotrod series, you can always pick up an external foot pedal. Those usually have a lot more distortion, but not as versatile of an E.Q. (although messing with the amp after setting the pedal could help).
I'm not a heavy player, but for AC/DC and such heavy distortion, the HotRod series has enough. If you're looking for something much more "metal," then you may need a pedal.
Good luck.
