    does anyone know what the centre freqencies of a stingray eq ? either 2 or 3 band ?
     
  2. EB's 2002 catalog makes no mention. Try their website st www.ernieball.com and a "contact us" link. Most manufacturers are pretty responsive to questions like this; they tend to get eliminated in the next round of website changes and literature.

    I think p/s-13 has the right idea.

    FWIW, here's from the Seymour Duncan site (the specs for their Tone Circuits™ pre)
    hmm...that Midrange Cut at "633 KHz" might just be a typo :) .
     
  4. Thanks for takin' my back, ND, but no, the 633hz cut would be typical of a "slap contour," and is not a typo. You are to be congratulated for actually finding the info. tho' (Hey, all I did was make a general type of suggestion.) Basslines MM slap contour is centered at 800hz, FYI, just in case you just gotta have that sound for your MM bass. I got that info when I acquired my FNA containing the circuit. Having the center point at 800 as opposed to the high 500-low 600 range will enable a fatter low mid sound for rawk-type players, especially with 12" speakers. Bassline's bass freq point is higher also, at 80hz if memory serves. ND's info shows 20hz and in my mind could be on a 5-string axe. My info above is based on a 4-string. Remember that open low E, regardless of how many strings are on an instrument, is gonna be 63hz, so consider your numbers carefully here




    :)
     
  5. Actually, I believe the typo would be that they have listed '633 Khz', which is so far above the range of human hearing it's ridiculous.

    ?? Low E is 41-ish Hz.

    The 20-Hz center frequency on the bass control is kinda low (Low B is 31 Hz), but with a Q of .67 it is fairly broad* - I think in effect this is basically a "shelf" EQ that doesn't affect the really really low frequencies.

    thanks people - i've tried my sabre thru sound forge's spetrum analyser and the sd figures look about right.
