Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by ergodynebass, Sep 16, 2001.


  1. Does anyone know the optimal EQ settings for a Hartke Kickback 12 combo? I am gonna buy one soon and want to know where to set it.
     
  2. for slapping i use bass at full, mids at mid, highs on full. but for normall use i use bass at 3/4, mids at half, and highs on half
     
  3. Thanks man, hope this helps.

    To me it's not that hard to get a good sound. I usually boost the bass EQ (more for slap/pick, less for fingers) and leave the mid and high flat, and I usually set the shape around 320 hz.
