Haya! I´ve finally gotten my new rig together and I´m loving it! My EBS-1/Crown XLS402/EBS NEO-112-setup (not to mention my new Neuser bass!) has really opened my ears to whole new universe of sonic excellence. I´ll post some pics of my new friends when I get a hold of a digicam... Enough with bragging and to the point: while I really love the clarity and versatility of the EBS-1, I´m still a bit lost with the EQ. I can get great sounds, but it takes some serious tweaking. So all you fellow EBSians, I would like to know how you approach your Swedish beasts. Do you use the EQ in "Active" or "Mix" config? How do you build your sound, do you start from nothing (like the manual suggest) with all the EQ levels at zero or what? OBTW, my EBS-1 is the old one (V1?), but feel free to share your experiences regardless of what version you have. Also, I would like to know if anyone is using the supplied phantom power with their active basses. I´m a bit torn on this: the concept is ingenious, but OTOH I know I will be forced to use other amps from time to time. The tought of forgetting to put in a battery on some sit-in gig is disturbing... EBS lovers of the world, unite!
