A lot has been said about the filter and Q switch, but I was curious about which frequencies lo and hi boost/cut switches present on Rogues are centered. Are they shelving or bell filters?

This is a good question. If anyone has any input are the boost/cut switches on a Distillate the same? Being that the Distillate was the Europa/Rouge predecessor? From what I understand the only difference between the 2 electronically is a Pan on the Europa for the pickups the Distillate has a switch.

I checked the FAQ pages, you have to combine the info from the Epic, Excel and Orion basses Controls page:
"The bass and treble controls are asymmetrical, +6dB and -15dB, centered around 100Hz and 5KHz."

... with the info on the Europa & Rogue Basses Europa Controls page:
"The quick tone switches are bass and treble and are not individual switches for the pickups. Each switch provides 6db boost, flat, and 6db cut."

So that would make it -6/0/+6dB at 100 Hz and 5 kHz.
