When I play some notes on my A,D or G string, they sound fine. But when I play on my E string, all I hear is some kind of booming sound, the notes are not so clear sounding as on the other strings.
Is this because my behringer amp cant handle this? or is my bass just not set-up properly? Its a Fender Classic Jazz Bass btw

What size is your speaker?
But yeah, lowering the bass like delerium said should help.

Tell us what amp you use also are the pickups flat/even or is the E string end higher than the G string end?

So your pickups are crooked? Try lowering the bass, then let us know what happens.

IMO you should never cut a knob past 10 o'clock, or crank over 2 o'clock. This does indeed sound like you're being a bit ridiculous with the bass knob. Also, compression should help even things out if it's boomy and too loud.

really ..my bass knob is always at 10...but my amp is never really loud enough to get the full effects and my trebel is at 10 when i play slap and when i finger pick my trebel is at 1 and my mid at like 7 or 8

he means o'clock, not on a scale from 1-10. 10 o'clock would be approx. 4 on a numbered dial.

But what Fitz is describing only applies if you have cut/boost switches, numbered volume knobs don't work the same.

Totally, but I thought only tube heads would have a passive EQ? Hell, my Rumble 15 has +/- db.
