Folks, I'm having real problems getting a decent amplified sound out of my URB - an Englehardt M-1 strung with Velvet Garbos. It sounds great in the room, but amplified there's simply no body to the tone - no warmth, no "air", just a big "pop" at the front of each note and scratchy piezo ugliness. I've tried A Realist (just a big low-mid foghorn kind of sound), a Bass Max, and a Rev Solo, which is on there now. I've also tried both K&K and Fishman Platinum preamps, and am currently running through an EA iAmp 350 and an Ampeg Portabass 112, which should be ideal (or at least more than acceptable). I've also been through Obligato and Eurosonic strings, although the Garbos sound so good acoustically that I'm not inclined to change. Nick Lloyd did the bridge and setup, so I doubt there's a problem there. I have no trouble getting a decent sound out of another bass at our practice space, again an M-1 with a Realist. Can it be that the bass doesn't lend itself to being amplified?
