FNG here. I've been lurking and picking up a few pointers. I have been playing through a Yorkeville xm200 w/ xt.cab for about a year now. I admit I thought this was a crappy rig until I read the FAQ about how to use eq. I applied what I learned here and needless to say, this rig really sings now. A big thanks to you guys. I've been playing bass for a few years now (guitar for nearly 30 yrs.) and am still trying to get around this bass eq thing. Had an SWR sm400 w/ the parametric eq and never really did get that worked out the way I would have liked. Again, thanks for helping myself (and others) get back to the basics where it all starts. I feel I'm in the first step of a 12 step eq program.
