Mesa M6 question
First, let me apologize for the ignorant nature of this question. I love my Mesa M6, and have used it for several years. I recently switched from a Tech21 VT bass deluxe to a Microtubes B7K as my primary tone shaper. When I run through my Mesa to either my 2x12 or 4x10 Mesa cabs, the character of the lower strings is lost. I plugged into a friend's Ampeg B115, and the tone and bite of all the strings came through beautifully. It is the dream tone I have been looking for. The amp EQ was flat with the exception of using the #2 voice setting. This setting provides a -12db cut at 500hz. I use circle K strings on a MusicMan Sterling 5. I do not want to get rid of my M6 for any reason. My question is the following: Is getting this tone as simple as setting up my EQ pedal to cut 500hz by 12db, or is there a better alternative. Any advice from Mesa owners would be appreciated.
