    Just for your information, I just spent the last hour with my Lakland fretted and Lakland fretless basses futzing with the mid-frequency dip switches to see which setting I like best. The options are 250hz, 500hz, 700hz, and 850hz. I ended up going with 700hz on both of them, which surprised me.

    Surprised me, too. I was wondering if I was reading the chart wrong ;)

    I spent many hours changing mine also, and kept returning to 700hz. It just sounded more natural to my ears. I usually only use my mid boost when I need a bit of extra punch and I found that I could get what I needed with much less boost at 700 than the other settings.

    Munji, now who're you callin' a dip s.....:eek:

    ....never mind, just an automatic reaction when I see you post, figure you're instigating something as usual!! ;)

    By the way, I may be out in your neck of the woods in April, got a probable Tito Jr gig at Sea World/San Diego the 14th. I could always use a heckler..... :D

    Son of a Siberian sea snake! I think I'm gonna be in Boston on April 14. At that same ASFE conference we had in N'awlins. (Association of Sexual Freaks and Extraterrestrials.)
