Anyone else think that no matter how much you EQ the sound of certain basses, some just sound great alone but terrible in a mix? Or the other way around. I play with a pick 90% of the time, so your results may vary. Like I hate the tone of my Stingray, especially with new strings, when playing it alone but it just sounds perfect when in the mix for pretty much anything Im playing. Bought an Ibanez SR300E because I loved the tone I was getting in the store but it sounds awful in the mix, no amount of EQ seemed to help. Ive also felt this way about pretty much every Jazz bass Ive owned, sounds great alone but it disappears in a mix. Any useful suggestions? I also use a SansAmp preamp most the time too.
