    I have a Kustom Groove Bass amp and a Carvin 4x10 to use with my Warwick thumb. Thing is, I never seem to get a decent sound. It's either sharp, farty and clanky (not in a good way and mostly farty) or undefined mumbling.. I want a dry(er) defined sound with growl, like I the Warwick sounds when recorded or with headphones plugged in my coumputer. I have used the EQ on mye amp a lot and it helps a bit if I boost both lows and a tad highs and use mostly bridge pup (neck at 50%). Flat or midrange boost is just farty, no growl at all..
    I suspect that the cab is the weak part, but wont rush out and by a new one until I've heard from you guys.

    You like the sound of your warwick but it does not sound good with your amp. This a problem, however it is solvable. First, go to a music store with your bass and try out a bunch of amps. I think you are looking for something pretty transparent like Markbass. Do they have Markbass in Norway?

    The other thing is maybe if you know some bass guys, try your amp with a different cab and vice versa. This will let you know whether it's the amp or the cab.
