Most of the time I have mine set to 60%.
50% and up or down depending on the room
I took mine out.
Where you need it.
Full on, or slight roll off... ~25%
Depends on the song. My starting point or "general purpose" setting is at about 75% but I'll adjust it up or down to fit the song, though I don't often go below about 25%.
My Attitude P bass doesn't even have a tone knob!
first, you'll need a sextant. measure the azimuths of at least three celestial bodies at 6AM, noon, and 6PM. then, carefully calculate the differences of all three and average those. the next day, compensating for -
wait, i was thinking of something else. a tone knob? turn it until it sounds good, and then stop turning it.
Yup , removed mine as well
What is this tone knob you speak of ? If I play a bass with one it's always up all the way.
All the way off, that's my kind of sound! (I play finger style on flatwounds.)
Also, I'm intrigued by some of the percentage values I see on here. On my P-Bass, I can hear some tonal differences in the 0%-15% range of the knob, and then everything in the 15%-100% range sounds exactly the same to my ears (i.e, full on). My Jazz Bass is exactly the same way (both are stock MIA Fender instruments). Are my ears missing something?
Completely rolled off 95% of the time. With LaBella deep talkin' flats, it's smoother than baby butterfly silk.
I mostly stay at around 6. It's definitely easier to tell because I replaced the default knobs with numeric dials.
I don't own passive basses !
Pretty much all the way on. Sometimes backed off about 10-20% if there's not enough low end or treble is too piercing. Effects pedals tend to like more treble. I always try to set my basses a little high on the treble side and add low end with the amp.
I have a Fender 1983, '62 reissue. I've had several and I've always used the same settings. If I'm using flatwounds , I have the tone all the way up. Rounds, I set it on 8ish.
Anywhere between 80% to full open... Then most my tone fiddling is done on m amp.
2 o'clock with a pick for a kind of Mo'Town feel... 10 o'clock and sunglasses for slap.
