Just received my first doublebass pickup, the bass max. I tried it on the E-string side wing, then on the other side. I like the other side best, cause I get more natural treble and can simply dial more bass from my little PA as I see fit. My first impression is it sounds much more natural with the bow, and more like my Fender when I pizz. Little compression gets in the way, which I like cause I want to be able to express dynamics. Makes sense with it being just piezos. I'll live with it comfortably for the price. Overall, I'm impressed with it, especially cause it's so easy to stick it inside my bridge wing quickly. Thanks again Chris Fitzgerald for sharing soundclips of your playing and offering the general public opportunities to evaluate products you've purchased along with your great playing.
