I have a Genz Benz Shuttle 6.0-12T. I think I like it. I have had issues getting some really good basses to sound good - although I think my Yamaha BB605 w/Barts sounds good. I seem to have trouble getting a sound that I like with some basses, although others don't seem to complain much. Currently it's a Rob Allen that I can't seem to make sound like a $3,000 instrument. My friends "cheap" WAV 4 seems to sound better. I don't want to start a gear merry-go-round with amps. I have enough trouble with basses. I need something small as it has to fit in the trunk of my Accord until I can afford a Pilot or something. Do I just not know how to use EQ? Ken, Jerry and others have offered advice and I've tried my best to listen, but maybe I just don't get it. I used to think I knew a little something after all the gear I've tried. Maybe it simply means I don't know anything.
