    Hi guys,

    I'm currently 'between basses' and am using my college's double bass for big band and small group stuff. Can anyone recommend a decent pickup that can be relatively easily removed?

    I am currently using a Fishman BP 100 and finding it less than satisfying, especially at cutting through in big bands. That and it sounds like a chainsaw when bowed :meh: !

    I have a Galline Krueger mb150, and have recently got a fishman pro-eq platinum, which has significantly helped, but it sounds like the pickup is definately the weak point in the chain. Anyone got any recommendations?

    cheers, Ant

    There. I just quoted myself.

    You can add Underwood to the list too I think, although I don't have one.

    If you want more info, here's one thread you can check out:
