I've been struggling to get a great tone from my Markbass setup. I run a CMD121P amp with a New York cab - had this for a while. However, I've recently changed bass, now got a 2012 American Standard Precision. Love the bass - but I just can't seem to nail 'the' tone. I'm pretty much playing with a pick in the current band, nickel wound D'addario strings. Tried everything at 12, bit of gain, fiddled with the filters....but it still sounds a bit top 'sharp'. I've rolled the tone off the bass about half way as well. Any suggestions on this? I've googled some settings, and it just confused me even more!
