I play mostly jazz lately but on an old pre cbs fender jazz When practicing, often without any amp, I notice the tone I get is very different from a pick up type sound, that we all love ( who doesn't like a Pre cbs Fender tone ) BUT that tone does not resemble the un-amplified tone of just the bass with my ear naturally position inches from the bass. It is more woody.. I cannot explain it. I play fairly hard too, which brings out more of whatever tone is present in this bass What methods, or pick ups or microphone added to my PU can I use to capture some of the natural sound of my bass? I really like this woody tone, and if I could add it to the existing tone with a splitter ot A B box, that would be so cool !
