I am headed to the city tomorrow to pick up my first double bass. i have a few pickup choices, and can't quite find any other similar setup to compare notes to after a couple evenings of looking online. This store has Underwood, realist, fishman, and a headway "the band string bass pickup" which I haven't heard of.
I have played electric bass for about 12 years but primarily rock, so I have an orange terror bass 500, and an orange 410 cab. The last 6 months we have begun getting into country and now a bit of rockabilly (hence the double bass).
I'm wondering if anyone has some insight as to which of these may work better than others when intended for use in a loud band. I also have an MXR bass compressor and 10 band EQ available if this changes anything.
I live 250km from the nearest music shop or luthier, so I would like to make the best initial choice I can, and I see a wealth of knowledge on these forums! Don't fail me now!
