Hey guys, I have been going to this blues club to jam out for a few months now. Recently I started bringing my Peavey Grind 5 bass to the jam night, but there has been a slight problem I have been noticing. Keep in mind that the Peavey is used and the previous owner abused the living crap out of it. The volume on the Peavey seems to pale in comparison to the house bass there, a G&L ASAT. Is it mainly because of the electronics that he is using, or just difference in bass (hence why I am posting in the "basses" section)? Also, note that the amp we play on is the same and doesn't change settings. We usually switch out back and forth on stage for the jam night, and the volume difference is extremely noticeable. Also, another question: Is there anyway I can increase the volume output of my Peavey? I only paid $100 for it, so I should be able to invest in getting some electronics either repaired, replaced, or giving it an upgrade if need be. Edit: Also, please don't turn this into a Peavey Bashing/G&L Worshipping thread. I just need some advice, if it doesn't bother any of you lovelies.
