Your sound setup

Discussion in 'Hardware, Setup & Repair [BG]' started by bassboy_jordan, Oct 11, 2001.


  1. I was wondering how people have their basses' sound setup, in regard to the Bass, Mids, Treb, and Pickup selector.
    And what kind of sound have you tried to acheive.
    Please say if you're fingerstyle or pick.

    For technique, I only use my hands, no pick.
    On my active 5 string I boost the bass 1/3 of the way, and the mids 1/3 of the way, and leave the treble flat. Pickup selector stays flat, I just move my right hand position. On my passive bass, all the knobs are dimed, but sometimes I'll back off of the neck pickup. My amp is set flat.

    Remember, the tone is in your hands. :D
