If I could describe mine, I would say trebley groul and Tom Morello-esque effects.

I know bass is a rythm instrument, but it sounds soo cool to flood the bandroom with that low grouling feedback for a fill! And then going to take over the audio spectrum with a slow full bass chord along with our guitarist for that HUGE pianoX2 sound!

Very wet. High trebles (about 7/8 to max), 50/50 on the mids and about 1/5 to 1/4 on the bass.

Think of marshmellows.


My tone is probably somthing like 8 on bass, 3-4 in middle, 2 in treble.
Unless I slap and pop, then its 8 bass, 2 middle, 6-7 treble.
But I twist it all the time.

My set-up goes like this, pretty much explains the tone:

A well-loved and bashed Japan-made Fender Aerodyne J-bass. Played with 0.73mm yellow Tortex picks, sometimes the 0.88mm green Tortex if I want to sound a touch more solid. For the record, I never use my fingers.

Digitech XBD Bass Driver overdrive set with everything at minimum level, so overdrive only kicks in at the extremes, and never to any more than the slightest possible amount.

Digitech XBC Bass Chorus set just a bit harder than the overdrive.

A home-made preamp my dad built in the early 70's, originally for hi-fi equipment; now heavily modded and handles both my bass and guitar. Bass set to 3 and a half, mid set to 6 and a half, treble set to 6. The preamp naturally adds a slight boost to the higher end, probably the equivalent of putting the treble up to 8 or so on most other preamps

Final output is some old 100watt Gallien-Krueger that's been dropped, bumped, kicked, had drinks spilt on it, and everything else you care to mention.



Final tone is high and generally smooth, but with rough edges. Definately not one of those 'earthquake inducing, floor shaking' bass tones, more like Lemmy after rolling the overdrive almost entirely off.
I use the exact same setup for everything and it's gorgeous.

How to describe it? Wow I don't know, but I guess I'd say skankin' with a touch of violence.

Booming and smooth baby. Though where I actually put the EQ entirely depends on what I'm playing at the time.

I don't know, my tone is deep, full and well the best way to describe it is pretty. Just moderately high everywhere on the amp but my active eq on my bass helps me get most of my tone.

Just like that, imagine Warwick Corvette and an Ampeg amp.


Yeah, that's actually my dream setup.

Chorusly-heavy hitting-etc...etc...

EQ:
Bass- 7
Low Mids- 6
High Mids- 3
Treble- 7

The chorusy-ness to it comes from the bass-settings itself, not the amp though, just the way I set the tone and volumes on the pickups.

My tone is very modern and clear. It's punchy and deep, but not warm. My bridge pickup tone is your quintessential Jazz tone as heard by John Pattitucci and the like.

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..

I like to change my sound with the certain music I'm playing. But for my all around ideal sound I like to boost the lows and get lots of highs in there. I'll play with a pick to really get some more highs in the sound, or I'll play with my fingers to get a nice full tone.
#29
Hard to explain, I keep more treble for a more punk sound but smooth enough to play ska/reggae.

Yeeeaaaaahhhh................. In yo face bass with attitude. Thats what the world needs more of.

Have you ever heard an Upright bass? Now imagine that, with a quicker response time. Very warm, very full.

Obviously it's on a fretless, which recently has become my main bass. Cause it's so damn good. I've also got a naturally warm sounding amp (SWR).
Bass: 3 O'clock
Mids: 1.5 O'clock
Treble: Noon.
