    Hi:

    I own a MIM Jazz bass and will like to know how you guys EQ your amps to get that reggae/dub tone like Aston Barret (bob marley bassist). I'm also using an outboard preamp with bass and treble controls and my Amp has a 4 band EQ-bass, mid gain, mid freq and treble.

    Any Suggestions please!!!,,,thanks

    Try cutting everything above 350 Hz. Don't boost anything below that until you've checked your windows. :)
