    Question for Factory

    Please can you tell me what the centre frequencies are for the Low-Mid and High-Mid controls on the Bongo?

    Same Question only for a Stingray 5

    Good question. Unfortunately, I don't have the answer. But it did bring to mind this question:

    What are the frequencies for the Bass, Mid, and Treble controls for a Stingray 5?

    Thanks,

    I sincerely hope not. If other preamps manufacturers can publish this very basic data the EB should as well.

    From the EB FAQ page:
    ------------------
    Q: What is the frequency range of the 3 band EQ?

    A: Our 3 band basses use a standard baxandall circuit centered appx. 500hz. Frequency slope is 6 db per octave. With bass control in max position, max output will occur at 40hz and drop at 6db per octave above 40hz. Maximum treble response drops at 6 db per octave at frequencies below appx.12 khz. Mid range is centered appx.500 hz. Control settings are interactive, therefore 6 db per octave slope only occurs when one control is in maximum position and the two remaining controls are set to minimum.
    ----------------------------------------------

    Google "Baxandall Circuit" for even more fun!!

    I would email customer service for that info. I have no idea, and the folks who know dont frequent the forums.

    Please inform the rest of us if and when you do find out, that'd be some good info (and if they have any insight as to whether or not it's a wide Q for the bass and treble and narrower Qs for the mids...)

    I would assume that the two mid controls on the bongo are something similar to a mid level and a mid freq control, so it's a variable control as opposed to a set frequency.


    this would make sense to me given the ammount of tones available from just the 2 knob.

    actually they are 2 seperately voiced fixed mid frequencies on the Bongo pre.
