Hi everybody. Just curious to know about the preferred amp settings in this area. As I've said other times, I used to scoop my mids since that kind of tone is what tropical music bands crave for, but I stopped using that "contour" button when I noticed that this gives more definition to my playing in a band context and really helps to cut through the mix. Still get some weird looks from bandmates sometimes and I hate that because they judge the sound of the instrument just by how it sounds alone (how can I make these stupid guys to understand that it's a totally different thing??). Of course, mid scooping gives sort of a more "hi-fi" -pleasant- tone, but again I feel it's not the best for a band situation. I'm not a mids freak either, but I really enjoy knowing that not being stingy with the mid frequencies really helps to create a good recipe in what constitutes a good bass tone to me. Thanks for your input!
