I Just joined a new established band. My bass rig is: Custom Tttides bass with blade humbuckers OR P-Bass w/EGC neck and GZR pickup > Darkglass B3K (for a little grit) > Darkglass Alpha Omega (used with the B3K for the heavy heavies) > Orange TerrorBass 1000 > Barefaced Six10. The TerrorBass has always been a little boomy, which is ok. But these guys - remember they’re very established with established tones - use a lot of both pickups / neck pickups on their guitars so there’s a lot of low end. The room is not treated but there is a lot of stuff in there to absorb some sound waves. As soon as we start playing my bass just turns to mud and I’m having trouble dialing in any definition without it getting annoying. Basically it’s muddy or way too harsh. Last night I switched from the amp input to the FX Loop In, which made my bass sound great when pedals were engaged but now my straight tone sounds way too dry (even though I barely use it). My amp and cab are my dream rig because I’m old and have a bad back but now I’m seriously considering going with an SVT-CL (or boutique version thereof) and an Ampeg 610 or a pair of Emperor 2x12s or something to round out my sound. We’re going to install some bass traps in the room but I can’t shake the feeling that my rig isn’t all I thought it was, and there’s no substitute for a big ass tube head and big heavy cabs. I’m not interested in changing my bass or pedal setup because I know that’s not the issue. Any suggestions?
