A little background first, I grew up in my teen years listening to and emulating the sounds of punk rockers such as Rancid, and NOFX and now after playing for a mere five years or so, I don't think I can stand the really snappy high end anymore. I don't know why, but I love listening to it, but it's as though I could never dial a high tone I can really dig or groove to... in case it matters, I do admit my musical palette has changed drastically since then, but it's not like I don't listen to that kind of stuff. Another bit that's bothering me... active electronics are starting to really get to me... I think I may need to jettison a few in search of some nice passive darlings. Any similar experiences out there?
