unless it is a fretless with flatwounds i completely agree... for a modern unnatural sound i boost the mids in the 300 to 440 range... almost to smooth distortion.......... some "bark" with the bridge pickup.... or cut the mids use both pickups and boost bass and highs for slap pop lol i play bass too!!!

both is correct, as Alembic puts in pretty much anything you want to pay. Series I and II are equipped with lo pass filters, one per pickup with adjustable cutoff and switchable (Series I) or variable (Series II) Q whereas most of the more modestly priced models offer Standard hi and lo filtering

Hi, about all this tone vs freq, there's a easy way to get it own opinion. Just go on youtube, find a bass video of wich you like the tone, and download it with for example Convertisseur YouTube vers mp3, so just try to eq at different frequencies for example with audacity. Personally, i was very surprised how the 6khz range was sensible, change the global tone
