Odd question about ibanez

    I have an Ibanez sr 505 with the mid scoop switch and an Sr 500 without the switch that I picked up later. I noticed the sr 500 bass eq is allot weaker than the 505 with the switch. Are the active electronics that much different on these two basses? I kind of feel like there's something wrong with the 500. The pot seems to work okay. Just not as much boost as the 505 with the toggle. I have to adjust at my amp when I switch basses and it's annoying because I didn't want to have to do that. That's why I bought both is the same basses.

    I forgot to mention the midrange and treble controls are identical in cut and boost with both basses.

    Probably not something "wrong" I'm guessing that the "mid scoop" circuit somehow alters the range available. Probably not much you can do except take out the switch feature and that would probably take information you can't get.

    Mine doesn't have the switch and I like it just fine.
