ok...anyone who has been playing a while has gone through this, and right now, I am stuck and I cant find the sound! I have been playing for 14 years, and i have had a lot of equipment, but recently, i have started playing a lot more lead work on my bass. nothing crazy, but more runs and mid/high register work. I play in a rock/funk/blues band...so i cover a wide array of sound. I got the rock sound down, i got my slap tone covered, but for the life of me, i cannot dial in what i would call a "modern" tone. something more victor wooten'y' if you will, with a clear and defined attack through the midrange that doesnt get muddy...if any of that makes sense. he has a very articulate sound when playing runs, and can even pull a snap or pop out and it sounds so well rounded. of course i know a lot of that is in his style, but i see people playing all the time and i soo envy their "modern" style tone. my current live rig consists of a vintage sunn 2x15 cab, with a peavey tmax head. dbx 1066 compressor, i play a washburn rb2000 bass with emg cs music man pup and btc control. id appreciate any input on what you folks are using, even eq or compressor settings. i just cant get the sound, its making me insane.
