    Would you put on bass booster to increase the gain? If I want to increase the gain without changing the tone of my bass, what booster would you recommend?

    I appreciate any help.
     
  2. So...do you want something that boosts the bass frequency, or somethat that boosts the bass guitar volume? When I see "bass booster" I think something that increases lower frequencies.

    If a flat volume increase is what you want, MXR micro amp.

    I used an EHX Lpb1 for some time. Works perfectly and is cheap and small. Didn't need it anymore and sold it to my previous guitartist, who also likes it a lot.

    You can also buy one of the many much more expensive boosters, but though I'm all for buying boutique stuff, this is something where IMHO it is really not needed.

    I have a passive jazz bass and when I turn the bridge pick up all the way up, there is lots of those high end ringing sound... But if i make it a little bit more then half of it, it is completely ok though i may need to turn up more amp.. So that's why I need that
