    I just sold my Genz Benz 410 XB2 to buy a different cab, I loved the genz but i needed another for a full stack to compete and be heard, so I bought a Mesa RR 1516BE cab and simply love it, except for the weight. any way, I play pick style and play with an alembic F1-X and I love the tones I get, that is untill I played finger style, It sounded like a had a blown speaker, but then i picked up my pick and it sounded great again, even thought ive been playing pick, Ive been wanting to expand my knowledge and learn finger style

    like I said, it sounds graet and full with a pick, then bad with my fingers, and i dont think that my lack of experience will cause such a drastic change in sound, can anybody help?

    Have you tried Re-EQing your amp specifically for fingers? It's a really drastic change when I switch it up. Especially in the treble range

    a little eqing, I didnt sit down and redo the eq, but it was just bad with fingers, ill try some more after work, but just the drastic change puzzled me
