im not sure why but after fooling around with my fulltone with my stingray i have really noticed the lack of tone in the bassdriver. Im not sure what it is but it just doesnt have the growl it did with my ampeg... maybe its the active vs passive electronics. Then again my amp and speakers are really starting to go and will be replaced when i start gigging again so maybe its just my amp thats losing its bite. Also, i LOVE the way the fulltone sounds with the comp-cut pulled up (is that on or off) but when i click the boost its just TOO LOUD. it definetly hurts my amp and speakers when i use the boost at any level with the comp-cut up... would a simple compressor after the fulltone fix this problem.
