    hey whats going on every one. until i get a new amp i want to make my bassman200 sound as good as it can. it has a bass, mid level, mid frq, treble, room balance and compressor. i was wondering if anyone was in a rock band and had this amp. what the heck does room balance mean?
    thanks

    room balance is an awesome little knob!
    its very useful!! say you are playing in a room with boomy acoustics ( school auditorium ) or in a room with stale acoustics ( basement )... turn the knob one way or the other to compensate for the room's acoustics. i think its pretty handy.

    i like the bassman's "flat" tone... but to help you cut through better, and give your bass a little more punch, boost the mids at "3 o clock" and put the mid freq knob at 9 "o clock" .... have the little arrows on the knobs point towards each other.

    thats what i always do and it helps out a lot
