I sat for hours with my Fender P-bass trying to get a good tone out of my Gallien Krueger 1001rb-II and Mesa Boogie Roadready 1000 cabinet. Nothing. I've previously used a Sansamp (BDDI at first, then the VT), but always felt that while the bass alone sounded good, it never cut through in a bandsetting. You could feel the bass, but not hear it, which is fine for some, but in our band "the bass is 70% of the sound", according to our gitarist. Yes, our gitarist actually complains because he can't hear me! Any suggestions? Check out Marathon | Free Music, Tour Dates, Photos, Videos for how my bass sounds in the studio and how I would like it to sound live. The bass here consists of three tracks mixed together.
