I play p-basses through an Acoustic 150 4x12 stack, and i have been having trouble finding a neat clean tone. Don't get me wrong, i love my acoustic stack, but it only has a bass and a treble eq knob and it is very very 70's style farting basslike on all settings when playing it loud. (which is how i need it live) I was wondering if i should get a good, simple stompbox compressor (looking at EHX Black Finger, or a Carl Martin but any suggestions are welcomed) to compress that bass and clear up the tone so it is a little more usable live, or maybe is there another good way to clean things up that i don't know of yet like a direct box or simple eq box to clean it up. (very welcome to suggestions still, maybe a yamaha ne-1 would help???) I have like 200 American dollars to spend, but finding a very cheap solution would be awesome, as i am just a lowly high school student saving up for college. Thank you all for suggestion.
