well ill describe my band so i can maybe get better explanations, i play in a 3 peice thrash band weve jammed for awhile without a bass player me being rythm guitar...we found no singer so i took the roll and decided id play bass because its a hell of a lot easy to sing.now at practices when i turn the volume up it swamps the guitars thats the only problem i was curious how some of the bands i mentioned bass can be picked out from the other instruments.

Well, for that Overkill tone, turn your lows to just above the "6" level, keep your high end and just over the middle, and boost your mids. That should help you stick out, not as ballsy though. I don't know how DD manages to be as badass as he is.

Yeah old.

Anyone got that tone down? And why isn't there a bigass-thread called "BASS AMP SETTINGS post yours here" or something?

Edit: hey cool I made it into someone's sig.

Make one then

Besides, isn't it kind of pointless telling other people your tone settings? Certain tone settings can sound different in so many different situations and under different circumstances. Someone with a tube amp will get a much different sound than someone with a solid-state amp. Someone with flatwound or half-wound strings will get a different sound than someone using roundwound strings. Speaker size and cabinet type also make a huge difference. Not to mention room dynamics... an amp will sound MUCH different in a garage than it will in a carpeted/drywalled room. And one of the ultimate factors in tone shaping; picks vs fingers, which yield two completely different sounds. Also, sometimes tone is all in how you play. For example, if you somehow had access to the gear that Jaco Pastorius used to own, and plugged his bass into his amp, and used the exact same tone settings JUST as he had left them when he last touched it 22 years ago, you still probably wouldn't get the same sound that he did, because alot of it is how these people play... how hard or soft they pluck the strings, if they grow their fingernails out a little bit, or cut them right down etc, there are so many different factors.

^^Just kidding by the way.

I also forgot to mention active/passive pickups
The two can have very different sounds.
