Question about Ibanez BTB Electrics

  1. I have ordered my lovely Ibanez BTB 5 string. I will be getting it in a few days. Played it many times in the store. I was wondering, if any of you other BTB users can tell exactly what the "mid frequency dial" on top of the mid range cut boost dial does. I only every got to play it quietly in the store on a rather poo amp, anyone know what difference it makes?
  2. The top knob sets the mid-range frequency that you want to modify and the bottom knob sets the amount you want to cut or boost that freqiency. I think it's called semi-parametric.
  3. Basicly it just gives you the possibility to change the sound of your bass a lot (!) you can vary between low-mids and high-mids..
  4. Yeah, what the sweep does is allow you to boost certain frequencies within your EQ. For example, a lot of basses come with the frequency range that is to be boosted set on the PCB of the preamp. The BTB allows you to move the point that you are boosting, like low-mids, high-mids and mid-mids. You could have low mids, bass and a little treble, or high mids and some bass etc. A lot of tones are available with it, and combined with a decent amp you are gonna be able to find pretty much any tone you want.
