First off know this - I have only been playing bass for a year or so, but I've played a lot and become pretty decent in that year and come from a music background (12 years piano / 4 years tenor saxophone). I rock out on stage and get good tone out of my amp on stage, and have been a part of a few self-recorded albums. Knowing that read on... I have a brand new Warwick Corvette Proline. I just got it and played it at a gig last Friday - seems to be good on stage. However today my band went into the studio for the first time...I went direct out from my ampeg head to the board. The tone was horrible. I recorded the whole album and then went back to listen to it and it just sounded "tin-like", with fret buzz on the E string (tuned to C#) and just wasn't fat or clear at all. I never notice this bad tone when playing through my amp. Sounded absolutely horrible and I had the EQ set to boost the bass and cut the treble. I now need to re-record the whole thing. Also the strings that came with the Warwick seem to be a little heavier than what I am used to. What can I do to get better studio tone out of this new Warwick? Help. I really don't want to have to use the Yamaha to record this album.
