I am curious as to how many of you have your tone knobs set (bass, mid, treble). For this thread, let's rate the minimum setting as 0 and the max as 10 (sorry Spinal Tap lover's, there is no eleven) I understand that many of us use EQ's but the tone knobs on the amp are normall the most drastic. The reason I ask, is that I wonder if I am pushing too much low end and driving my equipment too hard. Problem is, I am used to "feeling" my low end and when I turn it down the whole band seems to feel like we lost something. I currently run an SVT-4PRO (which keeps failing, so I am switching) and have my Bass Knob set at about 8, my mids about 4, and treble about 6. I play slap and pop, fingernail strumming and pulling (no pick) My music is heavy rock. We are a 4 piece: Lead Vocals, Lead Guitar (no solos), Lead Bass (yes I carry lot's of meodies) and Drums. Our band supposedly sounds like Taproot minus the drum loops and rap. Thanks!!!!
