I rarely play with mine at 100%. In fact, most of the time it is at around 40% and below.
It varies for me. from song to song. gig to gig. type of session or gig and from band to band.. I recently put a Stellartone in one of my main P basses. I am freaking loving it Its like having an onboard NEVE EQ on my bass .. and its passive.. just killer
Full up. I need a sharp edge since I'm using flatwound strings.
40% most of the time. Mind you, my wiring harness is like a 1Meg linear pot, and a 500k tone pot. Seriously considering putting a 100K tone pot instead to have a more gradual roll-off.
Everything completely open.
I set mine in a box of spare parts, all my pbasses have 1 volume, straight to output jack, and i cover the hole where the tone was with plastic caps that come with new fridges, fit perfectly
I have my tone knob about 75%-100%. I mostly try to cut through a mix. I use rounds on all my basses.
Balls to the wall. Wide open.
I make full use of the tone knob and it depends on the music and the room. I default to having it all the way up and adjust if it needs to mellow out a bit.
Tone knob position could be as personally unique as a fingerprint and is different with the number of times the strings have been played to the model of P bass you have. Use your best judgment and focus on practicing playing and doing something nice for your girlfriend.
Wide open, with flatwounds.
tone wide open amp settings flat single 15 with No tweeter flats
Depending on the music, either full on or full off. It might as well be a switch in my case. The reason is that passive electronics are not very linear and it is also rather difficult to hit the same setting every time, unless it is full on or off.
I don't play P-bass very often, but when I do, the tone is completely rolled off.
all the way up, then back off a little. I had a 10 position tone styler on it and #6 was really nice
a tone pot is basically a cut right?
Or unless you have a knob with a position indicator marking.
Yes. It's flat at full.
With rounds I usually ran about 80%, with EB flats 100, and now with some still-new LaBella black nylon tapes still experimenting 50-80, depending on which amp I'm using and the room.
I haven't played a p bass in a while, but I always just kept it wide open. Occasionally I would bring it down if my strings (SS rounds at the time) were brand new.
thrusters to maximum. all ahead full
