    So a few months ago I posted part one of this just looking for settings[http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f15/gk-mb500-settings-suggestions-995289/]. Found them and they work great for practicing. My band just recently got a drummer and the settings still sound great, but the drummer drounds out anything above "Open A", any suggestions on how I could use my EQ to fix this. Is it as easy as boosting my mids?

    Yes, boost the mids, otherwise you won't be able to cut through the mix with a loud drummer. But your single 112 cabinet is probably running near its' limits anyway -- that head can give more than the cab can take. So maybe it's time to add a second cabinet? :)

    I have a second 112 Golight cab that I'm going to add to run together. Thx.
