: Hey guys, I have a little problem here. I think that you guys would probably know best. when i play slap bass it is either to bright or not bright enough. what do you guys suggest. I play a yamaha bbg5s active electronics bass and use a pevey TKO 65 amp (if that helps at all). Thanks guys

Brew, I am going to need to ask you some questions. Does the bass have two pickups?(bridge and neck). Does it have a volume control for each pickup or just a blend knob(or switch.)Does the tone control have a nice even gain in tone through the sweep, or does it kind of have no tone through half the sweep and then all of a sudden lots of tone? You said they were active pickups, do the controls have a bass, mid and tone? If you answer these questions, I can maybe answer you for sure,but here are some suggestions in the mean time. Adjust your bass to have max tone and then model the amp to the desired brightness, try using just the bridge pickup and changing your picking hand location to vary your tonal qualities. I.E. playing over the frets for a bassier tone, over the neck pickup for less bassy and over the bridge pickup for a nice bright sound. I hope this helped...if not, just call me a blockhead and I will try to come up with some other answers......peace.......john
