My bass - Palatino 3/4 that sounds pretty decent unplugged. Has an adjustable bridge. Has some kind of bridge piezo pickup. I think it's a Fishman BP100, but it came with the bass so could be a copy. Dunno if those exist. My rig - Hartke 7000 Head and Boogie 2x10 cabinet that sounds awesome with a bass guitar. Ballsy, thunderous lows, very clear highs, but without picking up on noise. My problem - The upright plugged into the rig sounds like crap. Very hollow / weak sound. Additionally, it seems like the pickup is very biased towards high sounds, as various noises (Fingers moving across strings, belt buckle hitting the bass, etc) come through loud and clear, while the bass tone itself fails to. I've tried messing around with the equalizer to some effect, but that mearly took it from "bad" to "less bad". Honestly, it sounds like playing a $149 bass through a cheesy 15 watt practice amp with a 6" speaker. Help!
