Ok so I've got a Squier VM 70's Jazz bass (with SPB-1s) for years. Dig it, love it, my piece of heart my mainest main bass of all. Recently I got Squier CV 70's P bass and I dropped SPB-3 in it. My problem is that it just gets buried waaaay down when I am playing with my band live which does NOT happen with my beloved J bass and it does NOT happen with the P when recording songs with the same guys. If I had to describe our genre then I would say it is garage rock paced music that has melody like Foo Fighters. Currently I play through an Ampeg Classic Preamp (https://ampeg.com/products/pedals/classic/) which goes into an Ashdown MAG300 EVOII that drives an Ashdown MAG 410. I tried to tweak the EQ but I never managed to cut through the mix with an acceptable tone. I attached a picture of my amp so you can see what options I have EQ wise. On the Ampeg preamp I always turn the gain and bass to 1 o'clock and everything else is at 12. Maybe I boost trebles here and there but that's all. Gain boost gives my tone clarity, punch and dirt while bass gives... well... bass! On the amp I tried (with compression always on at 11 and sub-harmonics always off): - Cutting low mid and boosting high mid - so far this is the most efficient - Boosting mid and high mid - Bossting low mid, mid and high mid - Cutting highs, boost low and low mid I play fingerstyle and I don't plan to play slap/pick. I always play around with the force of plucking so a lot of times I play palm muted and another lot of times I pluck so hard that every jazz musician would turn their heads away with disgust. Of course the goal is to cut through when plucking normally/hard. I am open to every advice!
