Hoping to get some perspective on a change to my stage gear. Sorry this is long, but there's probably multiple problems.... I'm in a blues band (Mostly Blues w/ some rock, R&B, & Funk). We play in smaller clubs where only the vocals are run through the PA, so we rely on our amps for everything. I've been playing through a Carvin RL610 (2X10), and the sound is kinda lack luster and barely cuts through.... I recently picked up a MIA Jazz ('05) that sounded huge & punchy when I played it at the shop (through a 4x10), but average to not so good through my stage rig. I like the portability of the combo, & it should have plenty of oomph, power wise. I know the extra 2 speakers at the store would make some difference, at least volume wise, but the tone was way different too? I know from my recent reading on here I need to do some EQ work. I think I have it all backwards? Don't have the gain turned up hardly at all. Using the "Pre Shape" button for bass boost, and changing the mid scoop. Leaving the 9 band out of the loop. Just dialed in a little bass & treble on the 3 band, and not using the Para-Mid. Anyone got some good rough setup ideas for me? I'd work towards that classic Jazz sound, even leaning towards Marcus Miller a little? I know you're all groaning now.... Lol! Just want to head in that direction, not be a clone.... On stage I'm competing w/ a guitar through a Fender 2x12, and a harp through a more powerful Fender 2x12. I keep having to turn up as the stage volume gets to where it should be, and I never seem to have enough to cut through the mix. Should I contemplate adding a 1x15 bi-amped w/ the 2x10, or maybe yanking the head out of the Carvin & running my old Goliaith II 4X10 with it? What will give me more of what I want? Punch, bottom end & volume? Thanks in advance for the advice!! I'm sure someone knows more than me!!!
