    Grungy sound? That's a new one... I really don't know though, if I could get more of what you mean (hint: post a recording) it'd help..

  3. Sounds like you've got a tone problem, play with the little knobs on your bass. hehehe, couldn't resist. Seriously though, maybe your action is set to high?

    I think he wants growl or something.
  5. dunno, have you tried turning the treble down?

    it doesn't sound as sharp and piercing then.

    Try messing around with the mids, turning up the bass, and turning down the treble.
