First, just to clarify, EQ, means equalization - does this mean pretty much all of the dials, buttons, and knobs on your amp (or on your bass, if it is an active bass), or is it just referring to the Bass, Mid, and Treble knobs? Is any type of tone shaping the same as EQ? (For example, are pedals, part of EQ?)
I’m still pretty unsophisticated on this topic - in the beginning of B2B, Josh just recommends you set your amp to neutral, or, all dials, at “12 O’clock”, or about mid-way. So I did this in the beginning, then began experimenting recently. But, I guess my ears are still pretty untutored, so, my big question is: What EQ settings do you use on your amp?
To keep this somewhat simple, let’s just stick to a very basic bass amp, suppose it only had 3 dials: Bass, Mid, and Treble. If you were going to plug your bass into this amp, where would you set just these 3 dials? And why?
