    my nordstrand mm5.2 keep distorting when I use it on GK app and amplitube using IRIG - this doesn't happen with my jazz bass.
    It's difficult to adjust the volume because it's either too loud or too soft.

    It usually clips and distorts when i slap the bass..

    i noticed that the pickup is a bit high, could lowering it change the volume quality? Or the nordstrand mm5.2 has too much mid range that it distorts the headphones???
