    Just a fun, pointless thread...

    Just post your amp's EQ settings, and the type of amp you play those settings through! :) Through a Yorkville BassMaster xm200:

    Bass - 3 o'clock
    Low Mids - 2 o'clock
    High Mids - 3 o'clock
    Treble - 4 o'clock
    Scoop - Maximum

    That, or we adjust for the room and therefore do not have any fixed settings.

    Eh.... I mainly use a 9-band.... so I'll have to make a big effort to post it later, if I feel like going through the effort of making up 9 friggon levers. :oops:

    On my BMax, I usually go something like this-
    Pre- 9-10 o'clock
    Bass- 2-3 o'clock
    Para-mid- 12 o'clock freq, 12 o'clock level (a little more if the guitarist turns up...)
    Mid- straight up
    Treble- same, more if my strings are hairnting
    Compression- on and 10 o'clock
    BBE Process- on, lo-contour about 1 o'clock, level about 11...

    Of course, this is all subject to change, depending on the room- and my mood...if I am happy, that's about it; if I'm depressed, I tend toward a little thinner sound; if I'm pissed, I bring both 2x12 cabinets and turn everything up!!!

    It would be hard for me to do this. I use a Peavey BAM combo, and use a different patch for each song. The EQ is set differently on every patch.

    but here in the studio, I'll share how I've got my SWR350 set up for my passive P-bass:
    Bass- 2 o'clock
    Mid- 9 o'clock @ ~800hz
    Treble- 12 o'clock
    Aural exciter- 1 o'clock
    This sits in the mix quite well. Touch has EVERYTHING to do with it, so take these with a grain of salt.

    I normaly start flat and eq the room, here's what's on there right now...
    (Peavey TNT 115)

    brightness - on
    contour - off
    bass - 1 o'clock
    treble - 2 o'clock

    and an ever-changing curve on the 7 band EQ :D Does anyone else's amp really "boom" around 250Hz? You know, to the point where half steps in the lower register get blurred?

    Gain - 1 PM
    Bass - 12 o' clock, ultra lo boost (@30 Hz)
    Mid - 1 - 2 PM
    Treble - 1 PM, ultra hi boost

    Dist. channel:
    Gain 9 - 10 AM and pushed in (boost off), everything noon with a bit treble cut and combine switch for that crunchy Ampeg tone
    different settings for different tones
