Hey guys. Just got sorted on a new rig. Which includes an Ampeg SVT 5 Pro head. It has a seperate overdrive channel, that i can combine with the clean channel to create some pretty cool sounds. Problem is, i prefer the grindy sound of the Hartke Bass attack pedal i won in the SE BB raffle over the Ampegs overdrive channel. The Attack pedal has a "brite" knob, which makes all the difference which gives me lots of nasty high end snap (Extreme levels that can cut through death metal out loud volumes. The Ampeg cannnot do this on its own, lacking a brite knob and the Hi-Treble switch does not provide enough. Is this normal? Is there an amp that can produce that kind of Brightness? Should i just stick out with the ampeg and plug the Hartke into it as a pre-amp? Is there a way of modifying the ampeg to provide this high end snap? ( I would rather keep the controls within the amp as apposed to on the bass onboard pre-amp) I could possibly get a Graphic EQ put into my rack, But the holes dont line up correctly and the amp which is 2U only fits bang into the centre of my 3U rack unit. So not enough space either side for anything else! Otherwise the ampeg is a lovely amp, provides bags of Mid range and sounds as an ampeg should. I just think its a shame i need to plug in the Hartke pedal to provide the sound i need to cut through in the (ridiculous) metal band. Cheers guys! Rob.
