Hi! I recently just bought a musicman stingray (4str) and it is really awesome. I play in the praise and worship team every sunday and the one thing they ask me is to get a good tone. These good tone they want is not having too trebly and gives more low frequency. I already tried many eq settings but when I cut highs, I can't hear the D and G strings when I play them.
I am thinking of buying a flatwound strings so I can get more mellow sound and smoother highs. What can brand can you recommend? Do you think I need an effect pedal like compressor and limiter?
My equipment is ampeg BA112 and musicman stingray
"...I've been told "I can hear the bass over everything." But when I step out in front of the mains, there's nothing there..."
A lot of Worship Teams have a problem with the guitars, keyboards and piano all playing in a low register on their instrument - the end result being that there is a whole lot of MUD in the overall sound, even before the bass player plays a note. Probably it is that thick MUD your sound guy is hearing. Good luck trying to convince your fellow teammates to stay out of the bass range!
