    That's an easy one. On a good amp, flat. Flat. And FLAT.

    Unless the room is seriously bad (sure, some are), I seldom touch EQ on any of my amps. Currently, I'm using:

    '70 SVT
    '00 Eden WT400
    '98 Eden WT800
    '00 SWR Bass 750
    '01 Mesa Boogie 400+

    I also occasionally run a Bass POD Pro as a preamp through a QSC850 power amp.

    I always try to EQ the instrument rather than the amp. This is especially effective on active basses.

    i was going to post something like this, but i didn't know where to put it.

    on my amp (3 band, with a range from -5 - +5) i have treble at +3-4, mids at -2-3, and bass at +4-5. On my one tone knob i have it almost all the way.
  4. SWR Workingman's 4004

    range is from -15 to +15

    80hz ( bass ) = +7
    160hz ( low mid ) = +5
    400hz ( mid ) = +4
    800hz ( high mid ) = -2
    3khz ( treble ) = +4

    I do most of my EQ'ing with the on-board EQ of my Ibanez EDC705.

    Low, Mids, and High knobs all at 50%.

    EQ at 0 (50%) on ends gradually getting up to about 4 in the middle making a slight frown-face.

    Several settings depending on the situation:

    usually 5 - 4 - 5,

    sometimes 4 - 4- 6 if I'm playing harmonics a la Jaco.

    4 - 5 - 4 on the fretless.
  9. Totally flat on my swr sm900 and i use my mike pope pre amp to shape my tone.for slap bass tone i usually scoop some mids out and boost the bass and treble just a bit.for finger style i boost the mids a bit and tune the treble and bass to the particualr room.

  10. not realy...depends a lot on how the EQ on your bass / effect-pedals are set i guess... my Eden CX410 cabs give nice sound with it :D
  11. High preamp fileter on

    mids-cut by half
    highs-all the way up

    it depends on the bass i'm playing. more than the amp.

    with the 82 japanese squier jazz the EQ is flat

    with the 80 rickenbacker 4001 i boost the basses 7 on 10 and cut the highs 2 or 3 on 10

    with the 97 gibson hunderbird i have 2 options: if i want a jazz style tone i cut the basses, 3 on 10. if i want to rock like an hammer i boost the basses, the mids at 7 on 10.
