So, as my title reads, I'm looking for a funk tone that could also pass as a decent metal tone. I don't if that is possible but if anyone has found something like that then, it would be great if you could tell me. Right now I am using a Squier Vintage Jazz bass and a Fender Rumble 100 amp. The amp has a 4 band eq: bass, low mid, high mid, treble. The bass has two pickup volumes and a tone knob. Again, I'm not sure if this is possible, I might have to just eq back and forth every time I want to play something funky or something metal. Right now my amp settings are at:

Bass: one o'clock
low mid: 3 o'clock
high mid: 10 o'clock
treble: 11 o'clock

Look into Faith No More (The band)?

I usually go with...

Bass: 7
Low Mids: 6
High Mids: 4
Highs: 6

EDIT: Meh, someone who's less lazy than me may go into detail >.<

As suprising as it may seem, metal and funk require fairly similar settings.

I would recommend having the bass around 1 (o' clock), low mids to 11, high mids to 1, and treble to 2, as a starting point. Should give a solid, cutting tone.

As for the bass, both volumes to full (possibly back off the neck pup a bit to taste) and tone knob adjusted to taste.

Remember, experiment. If it sounds good and works, it will be fine, regardless of the 'normal' settings.
