    hey fellaz....just wanted to get everybody's two cents on their favorite tone settings on their eden rigs. most of the time i find that (depending on the bass of course) leaving the eq flat still produces awesome tone for my thumb bass on my metro. but sometimes i roll the bass to about the 1 o' clock position , roll the mid to bewteen 12 and 1 and leave the highs flat, or at the 2 position if i'm lookin to get some funk tones....anyhow, let's hear what settings you guys find that work well!!!!

    HEYHEY!! what's up dood.....I play a thumb neck thru thumb 4 with a metro...I love it...and ya know what? I play my rig with about the same settings....I boost the high mids and the treble though...I play my bass with almost no mids, the bridge pickup and the treble boosted a little with the bass to match...I love the way it sounds....i was about to get an SWR, but after I plugged into the eden, I was sold...what kind of tunes are u into?

    I play a Traveler through a D210XLT or D410XLT (the poor man's Metro ... or is it the other way around?). I play with my settings pretty much the way you do. I feel guilty about turning the bass up to 1 o'clock, but I really can't resist that kick-ass bottom it gives. So much for being a "set-it-flat" purist.

    thankz for the input fellaz! i'm a devout stuart zender fan ( the bassist from jamiroquai for those of u havent heard him yet!!!!) anywayz, i'm a big fan of dirty, greasy, finger style funk and totally dig the phatter tone of 70's slap (which is why i don't cut my mids when i slap) with a touch of modern slap clarity so it doesn't sound TOO thick. so how are u diggin' that thumb neck thru w/ your metro neptoon? i swear the finger style tones with that setup up is SOOO DOPE!!!!! btw, i can't resist puttin the bass up to 1'o clock cuz how else are u gonna get people on the dance floor and make'em shake their asses?!?!?!!
