I'd just like to know what everyone has as their EQ settings on their amps, your type of amp would be nice to know also. I've been looking for a better tone out of my Crate BT100 until I have the money for a better amp.

Right now it's like this:

Crate BT100
Low: 6
Low-Mid: 5
High-Mid: 7
High: 6


I haven't really messed around with my EQ too much, I pretty much just leave it at that. I'll be changing it up soon after some suggestions...I play mostly Metallica and some funk.

I usually have my amps EQ bypassed. The Ibanez sounds great anyway, and my other basses have good active preamps that I tweak a lot mid-song.

I have an Ampeg SVT-CL with an 8x10 cab, and my settings are as follows (for bedroom playing at the moment).

Gain: 3
Bass: 6
Mid: 7.5 - 8
Frequency: 3
Treble: 6.5 - 7
Master Volume: 2

Amazing midrange growl for metal and heavier styles of rock.

Be sure to rape the blue note (augmented 4th). Rape it hard and exploit it like the skank it is.

Treble 4.5
Bass 7
Thats the best sound I get out of my amp.
Also I turn the presence all the way up when the tubes hit overdrive. I can't control my mids.

Wawrick Profet 3.2:
Bass: 5 (flat)
Treble: 5 (flat)
Mids: 2/3

All my eq-ing is on my bass. It would be all flat, but the dropped mids add more variation to the tone.
All I want is for everyone to go to hell...

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

Or something close to that anyway.

On my bass I mostly boost the mids a tiny bit and change the highs and lows depending on what tone I'm after.

See, those who post in this thread can only give opinions because its personal preference as to how you have your EQ.

but, ill put my input in anyway

i suggest if you have the BT100, go onto crates website and download the manual. or , if you got a manual with it, look in that for suggested EQ settings. I found the Manual for the BT220 and got the EQ suggested setting for rock, jazz etc there.

but personally i have:
Ashdown MAG 300 EVO II head with MAG 1 15" (i.e. NOT A COMBO) and have mainly all at 1 o clock with more bass and low mid and a bit more treble.

I basically cut my mids and boost my treble and bass by a fraction. It makes my Boss DS-1 sound alot smoother, almost like the MT-2.
My Rig:
-Epiphone Les Paul Standard Plain Top w/ Heritage Cherry Burst Finish
-Crate XT120R

My Effects:
-Boss OS-2 Overdrive/Distortion
-Boss DS-1 Distortion
-Boss GE-7 Graphic Equalizer
-Boss CE-5 Chorus Ensemble

I use a i think 7 channel ampeg at practice. I cut my mids way down, and boost my bass slightly more than my treble. Drive is about midway, and gain is way up

Am I the only person in the world that doesn't boost their treble?

SWR 550X
Bass: +7
Mid: +3/+4
Frequency: 525
Treble:0

You're the only one who cuts it excessively, I'm betting that sounds like mud.
