Tonight I played my newest addition to the fleet, my Hofner Icon, at Ash Wednesday services at our local Catholic Church. My other bass is a P-Bass, so I loved the light weight and short scale. But since I wasn't used to it yet, I set up my two pedals and plugged in and began playing for our pre-Mass rehearsal. Man, that Hofner was so friggin' boomy I couldn't believe it! But adjusting the EQ (Boss GEB-7) did the trick. I boosted the mids and highs just a little bit, cut back on the lows just a tad and the boominess went away. After Mass I got a lot of compliments on my sound. So the Hofner will now be my new "go-to" bass!
