: I play a Ibanez sound gear with active pick-ups, a peavy 210tx combo with a 410 cabinet. I use a zoom 3000 effects processor which gives me a good clean punchy sound but I'm looking for that clear professional sound, with good distinction. So your lows sound low and deep but when you pick, slap or mute your high strings, they come through bright. What kind of equipment should I be focusing on, or is there any adjustments I could make to my existing equipment to get that type of sound? I'm looking for tight and punchy!

Hey there,
Having lows/highs separation is a matter of personal chioce, IMHO. I believe you CAN achieve the tight'n punchy sound you're looking for (again, IMHO) without separating lows and highs. Perhaps changing the 4x10 cab for a 1x15 cab will help you to fill the room a little more (you already have the 2x10 and tweeter from the combo for mid/high definition).
However, if you just NEED separation, I'd suggest looking for a crossover with a switchable crossover point. It will allow you to set the exact point where you want to split your signal. The drawback, of course, is you will need an additional power amp to amplify the splitted signal.
Hope this helped. Buena suerte and keep your bass up front in the mix,

El Pájaro
