Guessing we have the gamut of bassers in here... From the 2 knob set & forget players to the control tweakers. Where do you fall? I'm a passive player, but generally like a volume and tone per pickup. Settings are different across basses, but I generally find a tone I like then set & forget regardless of the number of switches and dials. My gig bass only has V/V - G&L SB-2. It'd be real nice to have a tone knob on it (my only complaint). I like to roll off the tone to 7ish on my P-basses, but I found my set & forget settings for this bass. One of my favorite basses is the G&L L-2000 & even though there's a ton of tweaking you can do to that bass I've found my set and forget settings here too.
