amps... flat


Recommended Posts

I just finished recording a cd with a rock group and i was playing a 1990 warwick thumb neck-through passive with all the controls up and a completely flat mix of the pickups totally direct with no equing. The sound is the fattest, warmest, and liveliest tone i have ever heard; the frequencies sit perfectly with the band and the character of my fingers comes out, also nuances such as finger placement and attack come out much stronger. Now I am on a quest for an amp that can let my bass speak with its character, not the amps, with the controls flat. I understand that live sound deals more with the acoustics of a room and live variables than a direct signal, but seriously you guys help your bass bretheren.
Hiram Bullock thinks I like the band volume too soft (but he plays guitar). Joe Sample thinks I like it way too loud (but he plays piano). -Marcus Miller
