    Due to all the the " how do I get this tone" questions, I thought it would be helpful to put up a thread for how everybody gets the tone they want...
    When posting put:
    -Your bass and how it is set ( ie, tone, volume, which pickups, strings)
    -Any pedals and their exact settings
    -Your amp and how you set the EQ and tone knobs
    -ANything else that I stupidy forgot

    For example, my punk tone:
    THunderbird, neck pickup on full, tone all the way up
    Ernie Ball Slinky's
    EQ pedal, highs on 10, mid -8, low 5
    Crate 50 watt, Lo 5, lo mid 0, hi mid 9, hi 10

    So yeah...
