Hi everybody, this is my first post. I would like to apologize for my English...I'm Italian I recently bought a Dano 63 long scale bass and I have to say I'm quite impressed by this low cost masonite broomstick. Nice tone and looks really cool. Yesterday I took it for the first time to our place to gig with my band (we play some kind of indie rock stuff)... the guys were very happy with the "twang" vintage tone...but the output was kind of low. I was playing it through a Trace elliot mark IV, gain and volume were almost all the way up. I was playing with both pickups on and I had an hard time to come up in the mix (I have to say our drummer is a hard hitter, but I was not having this problem with my other basses). When I was playing it at home through my ashdown mAG210 I didn't notice this fact...(maybe because I did'nt force the volume...). I'm wondering if this can be due to the fact that my bass is a bit faulty. Has any Danelectro owner experienced the same problem?
