Ugh. Just got done recording and my bass tone has a lot of pick noise. I guess it got lost in the mix of band practice, but its really apparent in the recordings. Anyone have suggestions on cutting down on the pick sound? Is it the strings? The bass? The amp? All of the above? Here's what I'm playing: Fender Heavy Pick - Ernie Ball Roundwound - Fender Jaguar - EHX Clone Theory - Acoustic 320 - Ampeg 410HLF. I'm trying to get a fuller, warmer tone - the recording sounds like generic 90s punk bass. Yuck. I figure getting rid of pick noise altogether may be impossible, but what can I adjust or change to try to limit the sound? Any particular settings on the bass or the amp? A friend swears a Fender Jazz would not have this problem. Really?
