Hi guys, I realize I have never been really satisfied with the sound of my DB359 - especially since I bought an EA Iamp 350 a while ago. I'm wondering if it's because of the settings, the cabs, or simply if the tube-sound is not to my taste. To make a long story short, when I was still gigging periodically in France a few years ago I bought a DB359 and an HT-112. I thought that the cab sounded a bit "boxy" so I later bought an HT-115. Then I thought the HT-115 lacked definition so I bought an HT-210 and at the same time I stopped gigging because I had to move to the UK I left the Aggie/Berg stuff at my home in France and in London I bought a used Iamp 350 and later brought back my HT-112. I leave everything on the amp flat except for the use of the "bright" and "contour" or "contour II" switches - I really like the sound I'm getting with the combination of this head and the small Bergie 12". When I don't use the "contour" switch I think it sounds a bit "boxy" or "thumpy" (can't find any other words to characterize it) but when the switch is engaged there is a scoop in the mids, and it sounds great to my ears. I come back to France on a regular basis and when I use the DB359 there with the HT-210/HT-115 combination I can't get a satisfying sound. I don't have much experience with amps so it's hard to describe what I hear but the sound is not as pleasing as with the EA head - it's not as "smooth", I think the mids may be harsher, I don't know... Bass-wise I'm using an MTD535, a Smith BSR5 and a Sadowsky 24F/5 fretless. I sold my Sadowsky Vintage 5 a while ago cause I was not happy with the sound I got on the Aguilar, I wish I could have tried it on the EA head as I may not have sold it To all DB359 users out there - do you use it in combination with another preamp? What are your settings on the head? Which bass do you use? And are the controls (Bass, mid, treble) on the DB359 boost only or boost/cut? Thanks in advance for your input!
