eq settings (bass) for different styles

Discussion in 'Miscellaneous [BG]' started by flea2010, Apr 29, 2003.


  1. Hi!

    As a bass player in a cover band, I play a lot of different styles.
    I'm looking for a sugesstion of how to set the EQ on my (active) bass for different styles, as I don't want to change the amp settings.

    Someone just told me the following:
    Bossa: Treble out, Mid 70%
    Slap: Treble 80%, Mid Out, Bass 90%
    Reggae: Treble Out, Mid Out, Bass In

    That's all I know so far.

    Any recommendation?

  3. There all what I use except the slap EQ. I like my slap to be deeper and bassier like Marcus Miller, So I put bass at 80%, Mid at 30% and Treble at 30%.

    Why don't you just set it the way it sounds best? :meh:
