Esteemed URBists, I use a K&K Bass Max. It's thuddy sounding, but for the price (and a little EQ'ing) has served me well (All Hail Bob Golihur). I now have a 2 channel Clarus and want to add a Microphone. From what I've read on TB, with the Fishman Full Circle, I can achieve a mic-type sound w/o inherent mic cables and feedback. Anyone doing the same? Another question, I've an oppty to get a Realist for cheap, so, maybe the Realist and Fishman? Does the Realist sound more "natural" than the Bassmax? Thanks all for your comments.
