I've been playing guitar for 4 years and just started bass. I got myself an Ibanez EDC700 and a small Peavy Microbass amp (not the greatest rig, but i just play for enjoyment and never gig so no need for big equipment) On my amp i've got MID, BASS and HIGH controls. On my bass I have MID, BASS, TREBLE and FREQUENCY knobs. I'm not used to this many knobs (my main guitar only had a volume knob) and am having a hard time getting a good tone. I'm looking to get a good thick sound for funk and similar music with lots of slapping/popping but something that won't sound terrible when not slapping. (I really like the tone Les Claypool has on the song "Oz is ever floating" with Oysterhead) Anyone have some ideas?
