    Assuming you have your amp set flat, how do you EQ your Stingray to get your favourite sound?

    Slight bass boost. Sometimes slight mid or treble boost. Treble when slapping for a slightly scooped sound, slight mid boost when playing some solo stuff in the higher registers.
     
  5. Flat, maybe just a touch of mid boost - 3 band.

    On my 3 band, I cut them mostly. I bring the high to about a quarter, the mid about flat, and the low a little under flat.
     
  7. 3 band eq and graphite neck. Flat bass, treble cut a fraction and mid cut about 15%.

    That's the closest I can get to the pre-EB sound, although the modern neck makes for a much more hi-fi character.
     
  8. Usually flat w/slight bass boost (2 band) but I'm not afraid to tweak around depending on what kinda style the song calls for.

    On my 3-band EQ I start flat and and a bit of bass or treble as required. I don't touch the mid control much at all.

    usually flat. Occasionally I'll roll the hi end just below flat to take a little zing off if I'm going for a smoother, warmer sound.

    On three studio cuts this weekend, I used position 4 (HH) on my HH SR5 pickup selector. 3-band EQ, which I set at high=flat, mid=flat, bass=boosted 90% for one tune, a busy fingerstyle that called for the bass to stand out a bit in the mix.

    On the other two, which were slower and called for a rounder sound, I used the same settings with the exception of rolling off the high and mid about 1/4. The tone, especially low Eb, was *massive*.
