So I picked up this 2011 MIM Jazz a couple months back and its been really good to me so far...but really only in my bedroom. I can't seem to sit well with it in my band mix during rehearsal at all. I simply get drowned out, even if I'm cranking in some overdrive or distortion (which usually helps). Basically, I love the way it sound and plays if I'm doing some solo stuff in my room but its night impossible to replicate that beauty in a band setting. We play mostly gritty rock music but in saying that we're only a 3 piece. Between the guitar and the cymbals, the Jazz just fails to deliver the balls I'm after/need. I was considering trying out a Precision bass which I hear is great for loud rock music as far as how well it sits in a mix but I'm worried I'll have the same issues seeing as both the P and J are passive. Does a P usually have hotter output than Jazz basses? But hell...if there's a way to make my Jazz's presence be felt more prominently, I'll take it. Like I said, I love the way it sounds on its own...but I really need something that will work in my band too.
