right, assuming its not my **** pups making my bass sound completely dull and muddy, what are good EQ settings for slap bass?

im using an ashdown 300W 410 combo with a 5 band EQ and a P bass special [copy]

(thats 1 split coil and J pup if you didnt know )

thoughts?

thanks guys

set your bass setting first, put the treble one or two above the bass setting, and set your mids two or three below your bass (or just turn them down entirely if you're too lazy to get the setting right)

i dont play bass but mud usually comes from the low mids being too high, like if you've got a 5 band eq it'll be the second band from the left. dullness is usually the highs too low which are usually on the right of a graphic eq

try setting the lower mid at 2 below the bass and each following knob one below the previous

the mids are a big part of your tone's "definition", so id experiment a bit until you find the exact sound you're looking for

Generally you are looking at is a scooped (to some degree) midrange and slightly higher treble than bass. How much midrange you want to remove is up to you and your tone as is the level of bass and treble.
