i want to be able to get an all around good bass sound resembling maybe rhcp or ratm. but im having trouble doing it. i have an Ernie Ball stingray playing through a mesa boogie walkabout and an ampeg 4x10 ported cab. i can get the bass dialed in but when i start raising the highs it hurts the lows. i feel i have good enough equipment to achieve this, just having trouble dialing my eq correctly i guess. please help. ps. i have found when practicing with my band in a larger room that my sound is much clearer, louder, less distorted, and generally better than practicing by myself in a smaller room. if this is the only problem, please let me know.
