I love my amp at:
Highs: 9
High Mids: 6
Low Mids: 2
Lows: 7

my bass changes depending on what I'm trying to do. However I really wish I had a J-bass or a Bongo (mmmhm.... 2 pups... delicious)

Metal/harder:
Highs: 6
Lows: 9

Funk:
Highs: 9
Lows: 5

friggen 2 band EQ.. lol


Now I've borrowed a friends Geddy before, and I must say, I use that bridge puppy more than that neck. lol.


Wishlist: MusicMan Bongo, Geddy Lee Jazz, Tokai P Bass

when I get those 3 basses...




....I'll really wish I had a better amp. lol

Tacoma Thunderchief, MusicMan SUB X02, Ibanez GSR200 that I haven't played in a long time that I need to get the string height adjusted (I don't have an f'n 1.5mm allen wrench to the turning I need, I only have a 2mm one. I'm half a mm short. Do you know what it was like when I found that out. I cried. I CRIED INSIDE. Why can't I play my first bass, because your screwdrivers are half a milimeter too small. HALF A MILIMETER.)

someday when I get that 1.5 mm allen wrench I'll adjust the strings and defret it.



until hten it's just the SUB and Chief till I get a Bongo. Which won't be soon most likely. But it could happen. lol

yeah I dunno, I'll still want the sexfunk when I'm f'n rich.

I still want an upright, just can't afford it.


I got the Thunderchief.


The Bongo is just the only electric bass that would make me 100% happy that wasn't custom built, I think.

It's about time I got around to this...

Normal settings (On a 15")
Highs: 6
Mids: 7
Lows: 9

I just love the rumble it puts out. And the muted highs remind me of a stand up.

Secondary Settings (15")

Highs: 8
Mids:7
Lows: between 3 and 5.

It's great for bringing out the high ends in chords.

Normal Settings (8(or 4)x10" and SWR 550X)
Highs (Volume): 7
Highs (Tone): 6
Mids (Volume): 7
Mids (Tone): 6
Mids (Frequency): 6
Lows (Volume): 8
Lows (Tone): 8

I haven't yet found a really good secondary setting on my stack, but It would probably be close to my 15" settings.

Of course, this is all for my Rockbass Streamer 5. I had different settings for my Kramer Aluminium neck, but I had to sell it. (Car got in a hit and run overnight, I had to sell it to get enough money to pay for repairs. Car was totaled)

ok, i have two questions regarding settings, and one technical.

Settings:

Matt Wong (Reel Big Fish)- i know its that musicman growl, so i use my musicman pickup, but i still can't quite get the sound right.

Olli (Rammstein)'s tone on "Engel". It sounds really growly, almost overdriven, but i can't figure it out. The video shows an acoustic, but i don't think he used one on the recording.

OK, the technical question: can someone please give me a good explanation of the functions of a Parametric (low para-mid, high para-mid) eq, and how to harness it's potential? until now, i've left it flat, and used the EQ on my bass, but id like to see what i can do with the amp if i really tried (and as i plan to use my other bass a bit more- its a passive).

Any help appreciated

Alex

Cool

If you want to sound like TestForEcho, you use a lot of mids. There's not a really bassy sound to my playing at all, it cuts through really well. Much more melodic than rhythmic.

right now, i'm still searching for my perfect tone. the hartke ha4000 is really touchy. and i'm starting to discover the shape and intensity knobs, which make a bigger difference than i thought.
anyway, right now: lows:7.5-9 (the 215 bottom cab means i don't really have to crank the lows) lowmids: 4-7 highmids: 3-5, highs: 6-7. thinking of upping the mids and cutting the highs, but like i said, it only takes the slightest tap to radically change the tone.
bass is a passive musicman sub. second knob broke off a day after i got it (slammed the brakes, and only had a gig bag). i just got it fixed and don't know what it does. usual config is knobs 1+2=max. knob 3=50%.

like dan, i'm hoping for a bongo (two humbuckers, of course), since it made my sub sound like a toy. speaking of which, how's the thunderchief? i've never heard of it, but dan sounds like he's a man of good taste.

bass 7
mid 3-6 (depends on if im playing by self or in band, low if solo, high if band)
treble - 5-7 (same deal, but other way round)

usually on bridge pup unless i want a nice bassy/woofy sound, then i go to neck.

amp is
bass 9
mids 7
treble 9

(i just like the amp settings high so i can control most of my tone on the bass, i leave the mids lower than the rest because the mids are the most likely to be scooped.)
