Back in the day (last year) when I was still plugging away with my little Crate BX-15.. I noticed that my playing was pretty noisey, and cutting out my mids got rid of a bit of the noise (especially while slapping). Over time I cleaned up my technique but I left my EQ pretty much the same. Then last May I got my Ampeg BA-115 (a birthday present that I opened early ) and I still went with the scooped mids at first. I liked the edge that treble gives, and I couldn't get enough of the low end that my new amp was putting out.. but I left the mids out, pretty much out of habit I think. As time went by I tweaked my EQ more and more, usually adding slightly more mids each time. I currently have my amp almost flat, with a very slight frowny face (well.. not really a face, I only have 3 knobs of EQ). I use this EQ for everything, with my Peavey's tone knob generally on full treble, but sometimes completely rolled off or in the middle somewhere.. and a similar slight frown on the EQ for my fretless Stingray 5. Anyone else slap with their EQ pretty much flat, or even with boosted mids? I guess I find it unusual that I do this because the EQ typically associated with slapping would be scooped mids. I also think it'd be neat to see some people's stories about how their EQ has changed over time with their experience, playing style, etc.
