i have purchased a hiwatt b60 12 bass amp which has the following controls in the equalization part of the amp;
contour,bass.middle,treble and presence.
i was wondering what some of you guys out there would set these controls to for a good solid bass tone,
all advice will be greatfully recieved.

play it and mess with it. I do suggest boosting the bass a little extra if you want a bassy tone. but we are not you. only you know what you want.

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.

i like it but then i did have a behringer before which was not the best so any quality amp is gonna sound better than that crappy amp,im beginning to find a tone i like but still havent worked out what the contour and presence do.

contour is your mids, its like a simple eq

i think presence is how much you can feel the bass, im not too sure myself but you can feel a difference when its on full

Contour isn't your mids, and presence isn't how much you feel the bass. Contour is a mid scoop in one knob; the higher the contour knob is turned up, the further it boosts your bass and treble while cutting the mids. It's nice when you want to keep the same EQ settings but want a nice slap tone too, so you don't have to remember how you had your EQ set. The presence knob is only on cheaper amps, it's another frequency in the EQ above the "Treble" frequency. Just think of it as a 4th band on the EQ.

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