Why do you want to sound like someone else? If I remember correctly you can barely even hear the bass in KSE......

EDIT, try the guitarists settings.

(From the setting thread)
Bass:6
Mid:6
Treble:4 or 7 depending on song.

You really want to sound like a guy who has a volume knob beside the bridge and an active EQ and pickup blend hardwired to zero and then removed?

You won't get that sound with your existing setup, unfortunately. Two humbuckers full-on sound completely different than a passive P-Bass. However, play what the guitar plays with a pick right at the bridge and nobody will hear or notice you, just like in KSE

He does what? What the hell is the point of that? Just to waste 9V batteries?

Lord knows. The idiot from Shadows Fall does the same. Check out both their... *sigh*... signature Ibanez basses. Both with one volume knob and hardwired flat EQs and pickup blends.

But the bassist in Shadows Fall is actually good, and doesn't scoop the mids.

Oh gods. Ibanez make two of those? When they make my sig bass it'll be almost nothing like that.

No, he doesn't scoop the mids. He doesn't do anything to the mids. Or any other frequencies. Or the pickup blend. He doesn't do the anything to anything.

And why Ibanez has 2 literally identical signature basses... just doesn't make sense.

"Signature bass" just doesn't hold meaning anymore...

The point of underground bands is their not popular or famous most of the time. Thus there is a good chance they suck.

There's more to your tone than just the bass... besides, if he likes his tone, there's no reason to go insulting him for it... at least they aren't using Thunderbirds.

I see no reason not to insult someone who REMOVES KNOBS FROM A BASS having hardwired them to do nothing and then releases it as a signature. I have almost no respect for people who are so "metal" they keep accidently hitting their knobs (i.e. the reason that all those knobs are missing and the Mike D'Antonio sig has his knob behind the bridge). What are you going to do to a Thunderbird to maim it like that? Remove the neck?

Well, by slightly modifying the aesthetics they have produced twice as many basses and therefore twice as much potential revenue. YAY CONSUMERISM!

The mids are cut and the low and high ends are raised so that if you were to look at such a shape on an EQ it would look like a... hmm.... well I just don't know what it would look like.

Or the infamous smiley face on a graphic EQ.

I couldn't bear to part with my mids, though.

And TS, if really want to sound like him (although I can't see why you would), play with a pick at the bridge and scoop those poor mids. Be warned though, it'll take a hell of a lot of power to be heard without any mids.
