When I play cover gigs I usually use my P-deluxe bass cuz it's the most versatile. A couple of weeks ago I realized I've got tons of knobs on my amp, and lots of knobs on my other basses. I brought my MM Sterling to a cover gig and went CrAZy. I turned the mids down all the way on the amp - left the bass & trebles flat - cranked the bass & treble on the MM, and used the midrange on the bass for the differences in songs. May not seem like a big deal to anyone, but it's a radical change from my usual tone settings and it opened me up to experimentation with all my basses. There's lots of knobs and fun to be had. It's interesting also how I can get subtle yet powerful differences letting the bass do the work, or letting the amp do the work. Any thoughts on this stuff?
