Hello Everyone! I have a quick question about preamps and old German plywood basses. I currently run a SoundClip straight into my amp and its a bit thumpy. Will a pre like a fDeck or Fishman bring more 'sing' to the sound? The acoustic sound is nice but the amplified thud is not. Or... should I change strings? I use Helicore Hybrids as I occationally bow but I'm predominantly a pizz player. Was thinking about Zyex or Pizz Helicore. Thought about Corellli but most folks feel they are too thin and I already have a 5/8ths bass. Thanks!
