I'm trying to get a good beatles bass sound but can't get it. I've been experimenting for a while and haven't found it. my amp head is a acoustic b200h. 6 band eq. I use a violin bass with flatwound strings, plus a pick.

any ideas?
w/o bass n drums, there wouldn't really be rock music.

Schecter is pronounced 'Shek-ter', right? I don't want to walk in and say, "Hey, can I try out that Sketcher?" and have the helper reply with "Wtf, we don't sell shoes!"

and put the bass about 6.

what should i do about gain and the frequency? frequency is 250Hz at 12 o'clock.

i believe most of McCartneys sound was thru his hofner bass. Probably does not help you, but I thought I'd point it out.
Try adding more delay.

I use my neck pup only with the tone rolled all the way down, a fat pick, some mid boost, and at this point I think my frequency notch doesn't even do anything significant to my tone. This is for like tone in a song like Rain.

Palm mute with a pick to get that low thumping sound.

The secret to Paul McCartney's tone is his mechanical neck hand string muting BEFORE plucking each note.

The thump is caused by each note's attack starting with no other note sustaining.
