Hello everybody, I have recently been playing with a band and I am kind of starting to think that I do not have enough power to play along side 2 guitars and a drum kit. Its just a garage jam band with no plans on even trying to gig in the near future and we are only starting out but it is fun. The rig that I currently use is only a few months old and I figured it would be plenty but when I bought it I was not playing with a band. So I have been doing some research on the forum and trying to figure out what the problem is: is it that I do not have a powerful enough amp, are my esq. settings way off, is it the amp and cabs? So I just dont know. after all the research though I just want a 810 stack and like a svt head, but this stuff is too new and I do not have a penny to spend on a new rig. We are mostly playing punk ska style music and the bass just sounds underpowered and kind of muddy. Not very clear, if I turn down the amp it sound better but then I get lost under the other instruments. I play finger style, I have a Ibanez and a custom bass that I just finished similar to a Warwick, both with active elec., GK backline 600 head rated a 300w @4ohms, a GK goldline 15 200w 8ohms, a GK goldline 210 200w 8ohms. Here are some pics of my current rig and the eq settings that I am using. The sound I am looking for is similar to the bass in operation ivy, rancid, anti flag, fugazi....any help on eqing, pre amp vs. master volume, voice contour, boost, would help I am not to familiar with it. I just want to know my equipment if this is what I am going to keep, which I would like to. I have heard that a big problem is that a lot of bass players do not know how to set up their rig, I dont want to be one of these, even though i already am.
