I find the overall sound very bass heavy.....anyone else?

Yup. I ended up picking up a Behringer Europort 500watt pa. I push the Spark into a channel on that pa and it gives me much more EQ capability. Sounds pretty awesome as well.

I don't use mine very often but fired it up yesterday and reminded myself why I don't use it...it really does sound horrifically muddy! I mean it is what it is right, a $250 cheapie, but the fundamental design and form factor is very good so like others here I'll look into swapping the speakers and/or blocking the port. Will try headphones to see how they sound, just to make sure the issue is primarily speakers.

@stratobiker Yes, I noticed that over-boosted mid-bass immediately too, and it is hardly to my liking. My Les Paul with clean Fishman Fluence pickups sounds more like a baritone guitar than a regular one through this amp. I also don't like how even the first two buttons kick in a non-germanium sounding fuzz with overdrive which is much more than I would normally use as I prefer a cleaner dry jazz/blues sound with any distortion added lightly. I am also having loads of problems trying to figure out how to do even simple things, like, say, toggling off that univibe or vibrato thing that comes on automatically when I first turn the thing on. I found the user's manual to be of very little help. Is there a manual somewhere which actually explains how to use and NOT-use all of this things many features. I will check the cellphone download again and try to find something. Ad others have noted here, it seems like the foot pedal is pretty much a NECESSARY attachment to have to make this thing work in real practice. All in all I am pretty disappointed right now, the thing seems much more like a work in progress than a market ready product,but I expect things to get better if and when I become more familiar with this complicated monster!

Hello guys, I am seriously thinking on getting the Spark, but I had my doubts when I watched (and heard) the comparison with the Yamaha THR30II made by Darrel Brown, and then I got here and read trough all this thread.
Now I see that the last message was posted in May 25, and since then, EQ Pedals have been released in the Spark App. Darrell himself seems to have a good opinion on that, but... I guess my question is, any of the people here with the "bassy/muddy" experience have tried this EQ, and can comment if this really fixes it? Or at least it gets sensibly better? Would love to read your opinions!
