    I find that when I bow at high volumes, my bass resonates too much and I have to continually dampen the strings to avoid feedback (which makes bowing difficult...)

    I'm using an Underwood pickup and a GK150 amp. No preamp. Any suggestions?

    Cheers

    The GK150 has a semiparametric mid control right?

    Play as you normally would and have someone work the mid frequency control on the amp to identify the offending frequency.
