    You don't say how you have it wired currently... either the config or the pot values.

    I'm assuming... vol/vol/bass/treble or vol/blend/bass/treble

    I'm also assuming that the vol/vol or vol/blend pots are 25K currently.

    You should change the vol and/or blend pots to 250K or 500K depending on personal taste.

    David thank you for your help. It's wired vol.blend.bass.treble...all the pots are 25k. If I change the volume (which i will do ) what are my benefits for changing the blend? In YOUR opinion should I change both?

    I'd say you should change both, I've never seen a passive pickup wiring diagram use anything other than a 250K or 500K blend pot.
