I haven't seen this thread yet, so I figured I start it. Where do you all position your pickup selector, and when? I have gotten tired of fooling around with my 'POD, and started twiddling around like made with my pickups: playing at the bridge with the neck selected, playing at the neck with the bridge selected, playing ON the neck(way up the fretboard past the neck PU), just doing some noodling with playing positioning/PU selector positioning and fooling about with my tone knob. I was shocked at some of the outrageous variety of sounds, and it really has added a new dimension to playing. I have typically been conservative with my basses themselves, and have preferred to use my amp's EQ or my multi-FX for sound shaping, but it has been frustraing because the tone "in my head" was never found. Finally I've found it through noodling about, and the difference shines. I have settled on, at least for the time being, playing with the pickup selector fully at the neck, whilst resting on the bridge PU. It gives it a nice, round, bark. I've also noticed that playing ON the neck, as in past the neck PU will make the bass sound like a double. It's really pretty cool. My guitar player had been busting me up about relying so much on tonal shaping, and ignoring technique itself as an avenue for "effects", and tone in general, and it has truly paid off. Feel free to share your favourite PU spots and EQ settings ON THE BASS itself.
