This topic could also be discussed in the Basses, Amps, Pickups or Technique forums. But I guess we'll start here. I only play with a pick on three or four songs a night. The thump really drops out of my sound, and I try to switch my onboard bass settings to adjust for this. I haven't really found a sweet spot, though. I'm not trying to cover up the pick sound - just bring back the low mid punch. I play a Carvin LB70 with 3-band eq and a blend control. I've tried blending more toward the neck pickup, as well as turning up the mid control. Or turning down the treble. I'm wondering if anyone out there addresses this challenge with an eq stomp box, compressor, boost or any other pedal solution. If you have technique suggestions, that's great too. I'm not that much of a pick player.
