    hi
    i have just bought an ampeg BA-115 with the tweeter and all and i was wondering what settings i should use.

    what settings does everyone else use and what sounds does this give you??

    also what would be a good 5 stringer (not stingray or olp or anything custom) that goes with this amp. id like a blues-jazz-funk-punk-metal-folk-rap-rock-kinda sound.

    Start with the bass and amp in the flat position.

    Play over the bridge and then move up to the fingerboard. The sounds should range from 'tight' to 'loose'. Make subtle adjustments to the eq for taste. You can get the most from any bass from your fingers.

    You may have to boost the mids a bit in a band settinto make yourself heard.

    And re the post count that was the aftermath of a little flame war I was involved in.
