I recently joined a funk band and want to play my doublebass in it. Initially I had a hard time balancing my tone to get clear distinguishable notes as well as that round and full tone (I would still love suggestions on how to accomplish this). Now I'm trying to take the next step and start running my DB through some different pedals; distortion, wah, delay, chorus etc.. So far I've tried running it through a Boss Bass driver but I can't get any kind of volume out of the amp without triggering some earsplitting feedback. What can I do??
