Anyone got some pointers on how to most effectively use your gear to get a good sound? I know "good tone" depends on who is listening. I never seem to be able to get a sound I'm happy with. I have quality gear but I guess I just don't how to use it to it's potential. Right now I'm using a Warmoth Gecko 5 with alder body, wenge neck, and flame maple top. It is equiped with a Kahler bridge and Seymour Duncan ASB-5 pickups. My amp is a SWR Workingman's 15 Combo. I have a Sansamp Bass Driver DI for live situations and for use as a stompbox when I want a tube sound. My tone always seems to be too boomy or too clanky. I want a smooth sound with good punch and nice definition. (Duh!) Any advice, tips, suggestions, insults?
