i want a rokin tone wat shood i do I'm JUST KIDDING, folks. Short of buying a Fairchild, I'm unable to get an effect I'm looking for that I know a compressor/limiter is able to achieve, and maybe it's my knob-setting philosophy. Maybe you know better... I desire a tone where the notes high up on the neck sound as Big-n-Blossoming as the lower notes (where the money notes are). I have been searching for a way to squash the tone down so all notes are the same volume, then raise the overall volume to get what I'm looking for, but to no avail. It's possible that the comp/lim/whatevers I've tried just aren't capable of doing what I want, but I've tried several pedals and rack units and I'm not getting it to happen. Maybe it's the bass itself that doesn't want to push those higher notes...? Maybe, but I've had the same problem with other basses. My hollowbody basses do a better job - I can get that "Come Together" bass tone (which of course makes a lot of sense). That F and G up near the 12th fret really have some OOOMPH on the Beatles recording, and that's what I'm trying to get out of my Jazz V. Is there a better concept to apply that I haven't considered yet? Maybe I just need to bring 3 basses to the gig - a fretted, fretless, and hollow (no, this is NOT an option for me - sorry). As usual, my searches on this have been fruitless - if you do a search and can point me to what I missed, I'd be grateful. Thanks in advance folks.
