and ive started playing with my fingers. the only thing is, im trying to find a good setting for my amp inwhich ill get a really good cut through, and alot of clarity, but i dont want too much tone. im sportin a yorkville xs400h its got scoop, bass, low mids, parametric mids, high mids, tone, compressor, wet/dry knob gain and limiter. plus the built-in overdrive. ive got my sansamp di aswell. i just want something punchy. my favourite bassist right now is probaly jeph from the used.. the used along with my band share a similiar genre, and he has some awesome basslines. im aware hes got the p/j combo, but the whole punchyness, im sure i could get with my pbass (seymour duncan 1/4 pounders).. any suggestions?
