I have a Martin BC-15e acoustic bass guitar. (the older model without the EQ for the pickup). I LOVE its tone unplugged.
Plugged in I get the usual low output problems and piezo quack.
I'm wondering if there are others who use this bass and plug it in. If so, what do you do?
--> Switch out the pickup and pre for something else?
--> use an ultra-high impedance preamp like one of the Radial PZs?
--> Modify the pick up with the Cafe Walter PZP-1? (http://www.cafewalter.com/cafewalter/fetpre/index.htm
