Another tone question...

  1. Calling all TB tone experts!

    Ok, so here's my problem. I am the proud owner of an Ampeg SVT-2 Pro, Avatar 2x10 and 2x12. In the hours I've had to spend with it, I've been hard pressed to find the tone I'm desiring. Now, I know that it may just take some time to twiddle some knobs. However, I was wondering if anyone that was familiar with the tone of bass players from Bigwig, The Suicide Machines, and The Alkaline Trio, and if so, what to boost/cut to achieve such a sound. For anyone who's unfamiliar with these bands and their bass tone(s), I will describe it to the best of my ability. They all, to my ears at least, seem to have lots of lows and mids, and cuts like a knife.

    Any help, be it suggestions or whatever, is greatly appreciated.
