1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. Thank you for all of your feedback.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

Studio that I jam with uses a "Aguilar DB680 tube pre amp". What can you guys tell me

    Playing wise I never focused too much on my tone, though I really should, but more concerned with what I'm playing and being heard (me and my buddies play LOUD). One of the studios I frequent all come with the same equipment, that being a Aguilar preamp thing. Gain/Master Passive/Active switch I understand. I don't know what the other knobs really do so I'd like to learn more about it since I'll be using it often.

    Also somewhat related, any recommended articles/sites that explain how to get the best out of a 10-band EQ. I'd like to experiment more with my sound and some literature could always come in handy with these things.

    Well Burning Skies, I know you probably posted those in sarcasm (In hindsight I really ought to have used the search bar, I'm normally better at doing that) but thank you. A few of those links didn't look helpful but some do so thanks!

    And yeah Roscoe, Ultrasounds!
