The bassound on the Piece of mind album is a lot midrange oriented. Boost the mids and cut the bass. You might need to boost the treble to get a little defintion. Hope that helps.

yup, all middle and almost all treble and there'd be no trouble...

and a lot of his tone came from playing flatwound strings.

Steve's amp settings are sort of a mystery. The only control that works on his bass is the volume control. Steve had a bad experience once were someone bumped into his bass and rolled the tone control away from where he had set it. So he worked out a system with his bass tech. Steve gives him a 'thumbs up' signal for more treble and a pat on the butt signal for more low end. Steve says that he wants a sound that's cutting on the low end but also clear on the treble end as well....Love that bass with the Krackle finish...Good Luck.
