Your music director is wrong. The midrange is what gives your tone the focus and clarity you need. i don't play in church, but I've done many shows in big boomy rooms. You want to boost up the midrange and cut the lows; it might require a little less volume, since the mids will give you more presence. You'll need to cut the eq on the low end. So - boosting up the mids and cutting the lows is definitely the way to go here.

Good Luck,


: Hey, I play bass at a teen mass at my church. I've been having problems with my bass being too loud. It's a new church, very big with lots of reverb. The main music director said the midranges are what make it too loud and so I cut all of them out, but the bass sounds terrible at that point. I'm thinking of using my 100 watt amplifier instead of the 600 watt Carvin Redeye they have there. Is there anything better I can do to help with the situation? Thanks!
