Tone Control vs Cut Control

Tone Control vs Cut Control
Greetings all! I'd like some advice about using a standard tone control (like on a Matchless Spitfire) versus a cut control as used on many Vox and Matchless amps. How do the 2 kinds of controls compare? How do each of the controls affect the midrange content of the amp? I'm building an amp with an EF86 front end and a 6SL7 PI with a pair of EL84's in UL. Thanks in advance for your help.
