  1. tight on cash and got one of these Gk 400rbIII amps (looks more like a dvd player than an amp) i'm matching it with a Hartke 115 and i'm playing a jay turser 401 tele bass. again, low on cash and gotta go with this practice rig for now...just wondering if anyone has suggestion on amp settings for this 60's psych garage rock band i'm doing now? i need a big round/warm full sound similar to what you might get from a hollowbody through an old ampeg tube amp...(yea i wish) think the animals and rolling stones... thanks

    Gain maybe 9 to 10:00, Contour up to taste, Presence off, EQ flat (pointers @ noon) Boost noon, Master Vol up to required volume ... work the contour and Boost until you are in the neighborhood, use the EQ to further adjust... Input gain can vary a bunch bass to bass so spend a little time on the balance between that and hte Master Volume ...
