    Not an ideal amp for upright. Should be loud though. Do you have a buffer preamp in after your pickup? Most upright pickups aren't designed to go straight into electric bass amps. Check out the "newbie links" section, particularly the stuff on preamps. You probably need one.

    Let us know what kind of pickup, too -- that might help. Even a description.
