hey everyone. I’ve come here to hopefully find a solution as to why my rig sounds the way it does. First of all, here’s what I’m playing out of: (We play Melodic Hardcore in drop B flat) Darkglass M900 Bass Head Ashdown RT610 Sansamp Bass Driver DI MXR Bass Compressor Boss TU-3 Tuner Mexican Fender Precision bass Special Here are my issues: I was originally playing through an old 90s ampeg 810 classic, and it sounded horrible. Eventually, the speakers started to fart out, so I figured it was the cab and replaced it with the ashdown 610, which resolved the farting issue. However, since I got the dark glass, I’ve noticed several other issues with my rig. My bass constantly has a dead E string. It is so not lively compared to the other strings. I’ve tried new strings 4 or 5 times and no matter what, the issue is still there. It’s so dead, that when playing full band you almost can’t hear my e string at all. I’ve already tried adjusting the pickup height, no luck. I have been feeling that a part of the reason my low e sounds so dead is because maybe the dark glass m900 doesn’t put out enough low end? I’ve been trying to like the dark glass but I’m not sure. I don’t know if my poor tone is due to the bass or the head and I don’t have access to any other nice quality basses or heads to try any combinations of things to figure out what it is I don’t like: the bass or the guitar. I’m not getting enough low end in general, my low e sounds dead, and over all my tone sounds very not alive. My band consists of one guitarist, one bassist, a drummer and a vocalist, so I am very much relied on for both bass and doubling acting as a rhythm guitarist at certain parts. With this tone I’m finding it hard to carry the rhythm. I’m trying to figure out if I should sell my m900, or if the bass is really enough to make me hate my tone over all. I haven’t liked my tone since I got the dark glass, not through the ampeg or the ashdown cabs. I don’t know if my bass just started going out at the same time coincidentally or if it’s the dark glass but I’ve never read any bad reviews about the dark glass so I’m at a loss.
