    $250 Guitar vs. $1000 vs. $3000+

    Fun Use of Tremolo Block in a Rock Tune

    Help me make my metal bass tone better (recordings inside Periphery/Karnivool)

    The only thing I'm hearing is a need to clear up some of the mid/high-mid range so it competes less with where guitars and vocals sit. Like with every instrument in a mix, the best isolated tone is not the best tone in ensemble. So you could either EQ back from about 1k through 4k or use a...
