    My SWR La-15:
    I'll hopefully have some clips of my bass + amp up soon here. But I can't get my tone to sound good. It sounds really good flat, and most of the time with fingers...
    But I want it to sound good with slap, fingers, or if I play with my ******* tongue.
    It's really distorted (sounds a lot like RATM, but with a lot more crazy ****ty EQ). I think if it was EQ'd right, it would sound good...
    Is it just that amp?? I am planning to get like a 400-800 watt cab + head this summer, would it sound better with my bass??

    A cab+head set-up will make it sound better, however you didn't mention the bass you are using. I'm not familer with SWR, but it sounds like your pushing a small combo? I could be wrong... not sure :meh: :confused: :eek:

    I'm using an Ibanez SR3005esol Prestige 5 string...
  4. Sounds like you're seriously pushing the combo, distortion means clipping means get at least 4x more power.
