    Hi guys! Im trying to achieve this bass sound on my jazz:



    Its very growly and a smooth big bass sound, but its also kind of a muffled sound without "fret noise" and that "sloppy" sounds.

    The closest ive got is with this settings
    1:+bass +lowmid, bridge pickup, lower tone all the way
    2: +bass +lowmid, bridge pickup, max tone and lower treb on amp

    But i feel i lack some of the growl and the big bassy sound.

    Anyone got some advice?
    Thanks!

    Are you using a compressor? Does your band have a PA and "sound guy" or are you expected to fill the room with the sound from your amp? Do you have a keyboardist?

    Ty for replys!

    I have a built in compressor-simulator in the amp (TC RH750) which i usually add some of. Yeah we use a high end RCF.
    Its more the settings on the bass/amp that i wonder if i could tweak differently.

    Isnt that to spacey sound?

    :help:
