    I am getting terrible muddy distortion on my fender p bass with my acoustic b100 amp..

    What is the relation between gain and volume?

    my settings are

    Gain 10 oclock

    Volume 12 oclock

    Frequency 12 oclock

    Low- 12 oclock

    Low- mid 12 oclock

    High- 1 oclock

    High-mid- 11 oclock

    I cant turn the low end higher because it starts to rumble terribly and im looking for a nice clean bass sound no distortion
  2. IIRC Gain controls the preamp and Volume controls the power amp. Have you tried lowering the Freq. knob back to 0?

    I have a nice sound out of my Jazz and B100 with the following settings:

    Gain 10 am (less is better)
    Volume 2 pm
    Frequency 12 Noon
    Low 9 am
    Low-mid 10 am
    High-mid 10 am
    High 9 am

    Basically, set all of the levels below Noon, and dial them down from there. Then bring up the volume.

    I use the passive input, even though I use an active bass.
