What are you guys's favorite eq settings or favorite setteings for a certain style...have fun.
flat ... I wont buy an amp unless it sounds good flat ... then will EQ (slightly) to complensate for room or mix ... I will also suit to room by cab selection ... I like to plug and play ... and with my Yamaha I flip a dial for a few different bass sounds, but mostly still set flat ...
BTW, congrats on registration and first post
With my Genz Benz I keep everything flat and kick in the mid switch with the Knob at 12:00 everything else flat and it sounds Great. Speakers are Genz Benz XB 210 and Avatar Neo 112.
same here.. just flat
i boost the low mids to get the pant flapping punch in the chest kinda feeling
Lately, flat with just adjustments for the specific problem freqs of a particular room.
Flat, flat, flat. All day long.
I run my bass EQ flat as well, usually, unless I'm slapping, at which point I'll boost the treble slightly.
I MUST have mids at all times.
When I'm using the Sunn 200s & Sceptre together, I'll run the 200s with the bass at 10, treble at 0, lo boost ON, hi boost OFF. Volume between 6 & 10 On the Sceptre, I'll run the mids (contour) at 10, treble wherever (doesn't seem to do much for some reason), bass at 0, volume at 8-10. When I just use the Sceptre alone, i'll bump the bass up to one, but that amp has a massive low end when it's overdriving already.
2-10-2, ("Whoo-hoo") .... Thanks, thats the most fun I've had all day.. .
On my Genz Benz's 5 band EQ I keep the bass flat, boost the low mids to ~2 o clock, keep the mid mids flat, boost the high mids to ~3:30, and cut the treble to ~10 o clock. I also use the Low Extend button.
Another flat-lander here... both on heads and basses. I even keep the eq on a pedal like the BDDI pretty flat... (with the previously mentioned very subtle adjustments for venue/mix). It has only been a relatively recent development as I was a compulsive settings fiddler for ages! It was as if I never even contemplated leaving things flat - in fact I may have simply stumbled on a flat set up. I'm really enjoying it.
Generally, I boost low mids and high mids a bit. Cut treble a bit. Lows usually flat. I might increase the treble and decrease the mids just a little for slapping, though.
On my Genz ML200
- Bass at 2:00
- Mid level at 3:30
- Mid feq. at 10:00 (or at 2:00 when slapping)
- treble at 2:30
- treble boost on.
Every thing is Flat on the amp. I use a tube emulator and a limiter/enhancer. I use the 5 band eq on my Bongo and just use a hint of low and high mids. Nice growl but not to overbearing
This is my "usual" setting.
Works better/best for a lead/chordal approach
I play with a pick and use a jazz bridge pickup soloed, tone pot is all the way up, I use Rotosound swing bass strings, gauges low-to-high: 95 75 60 40. My bass is a fretted washburn made out of basswod, with a quilted maple top.
(You guys are probably plotting to kill me for posting setting like this)
i have a hartke ha3000, which i dont think thay even make ne more, and an ashdown 4x10 cab. my tone sounds horribly muddy when i leave the settings flat. so i boost the treble ne where from 7-10. i put the bass on like 6. my low and high mids go back and forth from 4 to 6 in different combinations. right now from bass to trebble its 6-6-6-10. if i boos the bass and low mids a bit and reduce the high mids i get a justin chancellor tone. i also have knobs for shape and intensity but they never move unless i want to sound like a guitar of cliff burton.
I keep it flat, but boost the mids if it's not defined enough and lower the bass if it's too boomy at higher volumes.
Lows - 1 o'clock
Mids - 2 o'clock
Highs - 12 o'clock
The Schroeder loves mids

I just run it flat in some rooms. Depends on how the room/band sounds. But those have been my fav. tones that ive found playing around. I use the Motown one ALOT!
