    I was curious to hear from you Roscoe owners out there what you favorite settings are. I am a chronic tone twiddler, but as of right now, For fingerstyle I blend the pickups slightly towards the bridge while slightly boosting the onboard bass and mid with treble flat. For slap, I pan the pickups to the center. Of course, a month from now that could change. Obviously, the room I am playing in can influence these settings as well.

    I like everything centered and flat for slap. For my normal finger tone, I like mostly bridge p/u with a touch of bass boost. Sometimes I slightly boost the treble to help with older strings.

    I find my Roscoe records better when all tone is flat and blend is mostly to the bridge.

    For more reserved applications, I leave everything flat. That gives a nice mellow phat tone. BTW, I leave my preamp mostly flat.
