High frequency attenuation on SS/modelling amps?

I was playing my Flextone quietly today and it sounded great, nice liquid squishy tone, then I turned up the volume quiet a bit, and the tone started to polarise, with a deeper mid scoop, and the treble seemed to really ring through. I rolled the tone pot back and it smoothened out a bit. Is this common to solid state/modelling amps?

That's actually quite common with any amp at all. It's got to do with the way the ear perceives sound in relation to volume.

I've forgotten the name of the curve that describes this... I'll try to find a link and post it.

I was thinking that...though it's funny that if you turn up a hi-fi or something like that it doesn't happen as much
