Assuming you have your amp set flat, how do you EQ your Stingray to get your favourite sound?
Flat. They're badassed all by themselves.
Flat. On a 2 band of course.
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.
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.
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.
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 a 3 band
Fingerstyle: treble and mids just passed center, bass flat
Pick: Treble all the way off, mids just passed center and bass boosted all the way up
Flat, boosted bass.
Treble slightly raised, Mids cranked, Bass raised a pubus or flat.
I have two band SRs: 50% treble boost + 50% bass boost.
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.
on my 3 band i boost bass and mids all the way. when i slap i take some mids out, and sometimes boost the treble a bit, depending on the amp.
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.
3 band Fretless with TI Flats:
Treble=rolled off about 1/4
For fingerstyle -- Slight bass boost, mid flat, (depending on age of the rotosounds) treble flat or slight cut
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*.
