Hey all, I have an Ibanez SR506 which was equipped with Bartolini MK1's. I enjoyed the way they sounded, but I needed a little more output and something more versatile. My biggest issue regarding tone is that I have one sound that I really really like. I'm a Jaco cat. I love the sound of the bridge pickup on full, treble cut and slight bass with mid boost. The fretted Jaco sound. After upgrading to EMGJX pickups on this same bass, I still get that sound and perhaps even more so but I have one big issue with it. I don't want to copy someone elses bass tone, especially since you hear guys go for that Jaco sound all of the time. Hadrien Feraud, Federico Malaman, Jeff Berlin and the list goes on and on. I don't want to be that guy. The big reason why I enjoy that tone is because you can get the clarity of the bridge pickup position and by cutting the highs; you get very little finger noise. The mids add punch and more clarity - definition to the notation. It's a sound that works really well and there is a reason why people use it. As for using both pickups on full, I really dislike that tone. I can already feel the hate coming on for admitting that, but I just can't stand it. Can someone help me to understand why it may be beneficial to use both PUPs on full? Its that throaty sound of 'being right in the middle' that drives me nuts. If I could go stereo, with each pickup having its own output, that would be another thing. Can someone recommend some tone/eq settings for me? Thanks again! Thank you again!
