Hi all, I'm still pretty new around here, so please go easy on me... I am running a Jay Haide solid/carved DB (Bel Canto strings as I go 50/50 arco/pizz), with a Lifeline pickup in the adjuster (E side, on the string side of the adjuster). That runs into a RMI Basswitch, which runs into a LittleMarkIII head, into a Bergantino HT112ER cab. The latter two items form the basis of my EB rig, and includes the RMI when I'm doubling in shows. I am trying to dial in a nice sound for my DB on the RMI (while leaving the settings neutral on the LMIII). I find that I'm rolling the Bass and LowMid volume down a long way, and still getting a lot of bottom end. Is this where a HPF would be handy? I feel like I end up with somewhat of a muddy/mushy sound that lacks tightness and clarity. I feel like I can hear myself well enough in most cases, playing mainly musical theatre and smaller acoustic style gigs. But I'm not terribly happy with the sound I get. The bass sounds nice to me when playing without amplification. I'd like to get a better sound with the gear I have, or is that not likely as the LMIII/Berg setup is more EB focussed? My issue is that many times the sounds guys at these gigs are woeful and I'd prefer to have a nice sound on stage and have less reliance on them and the FOH setup...and in many cases there is little FOH support anyway. I am considering trying a more "full range" speaker, the likes of a small powered speaker that used for foldbacks or keyboard amps. Of course if money was no issue I'd buy an Acoustic Image amp and plug the DB straight into that. However, I do like the RMI in the mix as it allows me to cut/boost when switching between acro and pizz to compensate for the volume difference. Let me know what other info you'd like in order to provide suggestions.
