    I just got this amp with an Ashdown 4x10 cabinet a while ago and I've been fooling around with the EQ trying to find what sounds best. I play a fender america p-bass, fingerstyle, bass-heavy hard/alternative rock with some popping and frequent slapping/thumping on the low E string. I also have a SansAmp BassDriver DI which I'm not sure I need to incorporate to get a good sound. Any suggestions out there?

    Well, me personally, I don't like the bass DI that much. However, it was a mainstay on my board and part of my sound for a long time.

    Once I got my Ashdown though, I could not get that thing at a good setting (the DI), so I sold it. That amp, IMO, sounds fantastic without the DI. I say take it out.
