***Setup*** Bass: MIM deluxe ash jazz 2018 Neck pickup: full on Bridge pickup: 0 - 25% Strings: Chromes Amp: Ampeg BA210 V2 EQ: Bass 11 o’clock, Mids 1 o’clock, treble flat Ultra high: off Ultra low: off Effects loop send >> DI box >> house board Hi! Trying to figure out how to have a clear & round tone without excess clack\finger-noise. I don’t like how the bridge position sounds with Chromes. Too ringy. So I go with neck position mostly. Flatwounds have been really great so far. Basically if I turn the volume up past 4 the worship team complains about the bass being too loud. I turn or move the combo amp away from the back wall and it gets better. I play contemporary worship in a small, somewhat old church of 150. I’m just kind of unhappy with my tone. I want that right round sound, and I feel like the culprit is the strings. I’d really like to experiment with compression, but not sure if that’s the right direction. I know my gear is decent, just need to dial it in right. Any suggestions are appreciated. I’m opened minded. Update 6\14\2019: I’d like to thank the TB community for the overwhelming assistance and advice with this situation. I should have come here months ago. On that note, attached are some pictures showing my amps location on stage, the church size, and a channel from our board (specifically, for the bass DI). Had to take panoramic photos to get the whole sanctuary, so please excuse the whonky perspective.
